Small consumer gas pressure washers are particularly great for two reasons: They have more cleaning power than electric units, and they can be used away from an electrical source.

With PSI ranges from 2200-2700, you can clean a wider variety of things than you can with a consumer electric pressure washer, and you can clean them faster.

Capabilities of a Small Consumer Gas Pressure Washer
SmallAs far as cleaning projects you can undertake, a small gas pressure washer can handle most tasks, short of stripping paint. Some stains may be too resilient for cold water alone - you might need detergent or a hot water unit for the most serious stains.

High Pressure Warning
When cleaning things like siding or a boat, make sure to start a good distance away and get in closer as needed. The pressure can be strong enough to damage these things.

Applications


Washing Vehicles


Brightening Wood


Cleaning Siding


Removing Stains


Stripping Paint

Spray Tips
Consumer Spray TipsA nice feature that accompanies small gas pressure washers is an assortment of spray tips - allowing you to tailor your spray pattern to your cleaning task. If you're rinsing detergent from your siding, go with a wider spray. But if you're blasting mold and mildew from your walkway, choose a concentrated jet spray.

In a 5-pack, the tips are:
  • 0 - red, concentrated pencil jet
  • 15 - yellow, high performance
  • 25 - green, multi-purpose
  • 40 - white, sensitive surfaces
  • 65 - black, low pressure detergent application
