I have had a 3000psi Karcher gas powered washer for 2years now and have liked how it cleans.In my little experince the electric is good if you are only cleaning stuff like atvs and cars.If your going to wash your house and tractors and everything else in sight go with gas.But on the down side if your only going to use it once or twice a year I would just get a electric.

electric is fine, but whatever you decide, get the "turbo" nozzle. it makes things go much quicker!

I've had both and I like the gas much better.

Am I the only one who wants to pass on goin' out and blowin' the dirt and grease offa the tractor in zero degrees? LOL
And as far as maintaining the motor - ifn you only use it 2-3 times a year; change the oil every 2 years and the spark plug every 5! Put stabil in the gas and forget about it.

Well I used to have my own repair shop for many years and I usually clean off everything before working on it. And living in Ohio your going to have some bad weather to deal with.

Yeah, it is prefered to work on clean stuff. That way you can see what you are working on. And dirt doesn't fall into the machine as you disassemble it. Still, I believe that if you are going to do any heavy cleaning, like degreasing an old tractor or cleaning the driveway where the old pickup sat for years, your gonna wish you had all the psi you can get and, that hot water helps. Good luck in your search.

I think mine is around 1500 psi and you really have to watch it around wiring harnesses and fan belts as it can tear them up. You also have to watch cleaning off some of these poor repaints because you can blow off the good looking paint that isn't adheared and then you just made it look terrible.
