Which is the better Karcher Powerwasher model: gas pressure or electric?

I want to start a powerwashing business.


Answer by  DavidS (1517)

Gas would be my top choice. Anything electric over time will eventually have a seal failure and allow water to be exposed to electrical components. Also with Gas you do not have to worry about extension cords and finding outlets to plug in to which can be a problem.

If you are starting your own business, you need to be able to provide services without using your client's resources. Therefore, gas would be the best option. Another reason is because you may not have access to electricity at every job. Good luck starting your business.

The gas power washer would be the best choice to buy if starting a business. Not only will it be more powerful it not be limited in distance from power cords. Having to ask a client to use their outlet to plug in your equipment is not recommended. Quality for gas model is also better.

Gas is better. You wont have to be looking for an electric socket at a customers house or worry about tripping over the cord. Gas is also more powerful.

I prefer the electric Karcher Powerwasher because it requires less maintenance costs and it easier to maintain than the gas version.

Electric is better as it is safer option. Gas can explode if in cylinders. Also electric is a lot cheaper to use.

The power of two engines will always be like, however the electric does not generate smoke or pollution in any way. Maintenance is cheaper and faster.
