Choosing Between Electric and Petrol Pressure Washers?

Here at Britclean, we offer customers the choice of electric and petrol pressure washers; but do you know which one is best for your chosen application?

If you are unsure, do not worry, as we put together this guide to show you the difference between the two.

The Difference between Electric and Petrol Pressure Washers

Electric pressure washers are typically considered to be more suited to domestic use instead of petrol machines. They run cleaner and quieter, starting with a simple touch of a button.

Electric models are also lighter and offer the power required for the usual home and garden pressure washing tasks. They will need to be plugged into an electrical outlet or compatible extension lead. We advise taking extra care to not trip over the cable or get your electrical connections wet.

Alternatively, petrol pressure washers are recommended for regular and professional use. These machines are more heavy-duty than electric models and will often give you more power. Petrol machines are the best choice for large scale jobs plus they offer more mobility and do not require a power outlet nearby.

Best Pressure Washing Tasks

Here is a brief summary of the many cleaning tasks you can complete with a pressure washing machine –

  • Prepare surfaces such as walls, decking, fences, sheds or piece of garden furniture for painting. The pressure washer will blast away stubborn dirt and old, flaking paint
  • Wash bicycles, motorbikes, cars, vans, trailers, tractors and boats
  • Patio cleaning
  • Wash out smelly wheelie bins
  • Wash outdoor power equipment such as lawnmowers
  • Clean out gutters
  • Wash garden furniture and tools
  • Clean outdoor play equipment such as slides and swings
  • Wash out dog kennels and chicken coops
