Suitable for a wide variety of light-duty to heavy-duty home cleaning applications, the Karcher pressure washer selection includes numerous gas-fueled and electric models. Designed for a specific range of tasks, a Karcher pressure washer is ideal for preparing surfaces to paint, removing moss from a stone wall or brick patio and hosing down gutters. Uses for higher-powered gas models include breaking up and removing hardened mud from wheel wells or caked-on grass debris from the underside of a lawnmower. Karcher pressure washers can handle just about any domestic cleanup job.
Models and Prices
Electric pressure washers from Karcher are made mainly for light-duty residential tasks such as car-washing, quick cleanup of barbecues and other cleaning of light grease, dirt or grime buildup. Karcher produces hand-carried and rollable electric pressure washers, housed in a durable, high-impact plastic shell that includes a built-in handle and/or caster wheels and storage area for accessories. Karcher gas-fueled pressure washers feature a tubular steel frame, rugged pneumatic tires and a powerful Honda or similar engine. Karcher gas units are designed for heavier grease and dirt removal and are good for cleaning vinyl siding, grime-covered decks and farm equipment. Prices for light-duty electric pressure washers range from $70 to $300, while gas-fueled models cost between $200 and $1,200.
In terms of blasting power, Karcher electric pressure washers range from 1400 to 1850 PSI, while gas-fueled models produce 2000 to 4000 max PSI. Karcher electric pressure washers have a water flow rate from 1.3 to 1.5 GPM. Gas washers put out between 2 and 3.6 GPM. Karcher does produce an industrial-grade electric steam unit with a flow of 4.5 GPM. Electric pressure washers are built with an induction motor that only runs when spraying and requires no maintenance. Gas-fueled units include a durable electric-start engine and a direct-drive axial pump with brass manifold.
