At Lowe’s, we want to help you keep the things outside of your home — house siding, cars, trucks, driveways — neat and clean. Enter the pressure washer, a convenient way to increase your cleaning power for general house upkeep. We offer a wide selection of electric pressure washers and gas pressure washers from brands like Briggs & Stratton, CRAFTSMAN, Generac, Karcher and more, so there’s no task, big or small, that can’t be tackled.
Pressure Washer Types What’s the difference between electric pressure washers and gas pressure washers? Electric models are ideal for smaller jobs, start more easily, and run more quietly and are cleaner than their gas counterparts. With gas models you can move around freely around and handle larger projects, thanks to more power output. Cold-water pressure washers are the most common type for do-it-yourself projects. Need to add some heat to your cleaning? Hot-water pressure washers might be exactly what you need.
Pressure Washer Power Pressure washers come in light-, medium-, heavy- and even commercial-duty versions to meet your needs, with pounds per square inch (PSI) and gallons per minute (GPM) determining cleaning power. PSI ratings range from 1300 PSI to 2800 PSI (and higher) for high-pressure power washers. The higher the combined output of PSI and GPM, the faster the cleaning. Light-duty pressure washers are best for cleaning patio furniture and cars, while heavy-duty pressure washers are best for tasks like stripping paint.
