Gas pressure washers are among the most popular power wash systems. These machines are convenient alternatives to electric pressure machines, which cannot run without electricity. Gas pressure washers may even be the first choice for many contractors where gas prices are low and gasoline is easily available.
Gas pressure washers are popular in industries, including car wash and agriculture. There are various reasons for their popularity.
Powerful and effective
Gas powered machines are powerful and feature high temperature and pressure levels. Some of them attain temperature levels as high as 330°F. The heavy duty heating coil is able to withstand high temperatures and is less prone to brittleness.
Such machines feature high pressure levels, sometimes going up to 3000 psi. They are also known for their quick heating capabilities, able to convert cold water into hot water within just 30 seconds. You can set the temperature to cold, hot, or very hot depending on your requirements.
These power cleaning machines have higher carrying capacity for heating and engine fuel. This makes them suitable for long-haul cleaning tasks. In addition to all these advantages, gas powered equipment bought from reliable dealers have suitable warranties, they are corrosion resistant, and have accessories, such as a trigger wand with fast disconnect, nozzles with varying spray patterns, and a long hose.
Gas pressure washers can move freely, as they are not confined around a power source external to them. The absence of an electric power cord, for example, frees portable gas pressure washers from restraints, such as inability to move far from the power source.
Gas pressure wash systems can be mounted on trailers and carried to locations. They may be wheeled through the site as well. Truck mounted pressure washers are particularly important in mobile car washes, building and development projects, and maintenance of public infrastructure.
While many electric pressure washers and power wash machines that run on gasoline are not used indoors, this limitation can be easily overcome if you use a long hose. Gas engines emit fumes, which makes it difficult to keep the machine indoors when the engine is running. However, if the machine has a long hose, you can keep the machine outside while cleaning indoor areas.
Some hot water pressure washers have hoses which are 50 feet long. These machines are easy to use indoors. Advanced hot water pressure washers have gasoline engines that do not generate too much noise.
High quality engine
Modern engine design has eliminated many of the problems associated with traditional electric pressure washers. These engines do not have a buildup of soot and burnt hydrocarbon residues, unlike older engines. The battery is able to maintain charge throughout the day as opposed to just a few hours.
Another advantage is that advanced gasoline engines are environment friendly and generate less fumes. The ignition system is safe as well as fast, saving fuel in the process.
