Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 30, 2005
Finding a selection of pressure washers is easy. But with so many types of pressure washers on the market, it can be difficult selecting the best value.
Pressure Washers Direct.com (http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com), an online pressure washer superstore which carries more than 60 different models, is helping homeowners pick the perfect pressure washer by publishing its annual list of top-selling pressure washers.
"Once we loaded all of the models into our extensive database, homeowners could easily determine which models were the best value based on price and features," said Jon Hoch, founder of Pressure Washers Direct.com.
The list of best-selling pressure washers encompasses a wide variety of sizes, ranging from 1500 to 3400 pounds-per-square-inch (PSI).
5. Karcher K5.20M (http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=177)
Some electric power washers have the reputation of being cheap, high pressure water picks. Not Karcher's K5.20M. This model made the best sellers list simply because of its quality.
According to Hoch, homeowners like the features of an electric power washer, but get extremely frustrated when it burns out or breaks prematurely.
With a durable induction motor and professional style aluminum pump, the K5.20M may cost a little more than something you'll find at your local discount store, says Hoch, but the quality justifies the expense.
4. Reconditioned Campbell Hausfeld PW2200 (http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=156)
Some of the best bargains aren't found in stores. In fact, they are often returned to stores.
Take the case of Campbell Hausfeld's reconditioned 2300 PSI pressure washer. This pressure washer is often purchased by the weekend warrior, who also happens to be the champion of cheap. He uses it for the weekend, then returns it for a full refund.
This barely used pressure washer is sent back to the manufacturer, who inspects, cleans and, if necessary, fixes any problems. Since it is no longer "technically" new, the price is significantly reduced and resold as reconditioned.
3. Briggs & Stratton 1808 (http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=191)
Wow. Briggs & Stratton's 3400 PSI pressure washer seems too good to be true. Most pressure washers above 3000 PSI cost at least a grand. Not this one. This extremely powerful pressure washer retails for only $799.99 at Pressure Washers Direct.com.
It must be junk, you say. Not so. According to Hoch, Briggs & Stratton's 3400 PSI pressure washer has consistently received rave reviews from customers, and the company has yet to log a single complaint on this model -- a remarkable feat considering the number of units sold.
2. Campbell Hausfeld PW1380 (http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=77)
This electric power washer made the best selling list two years in a row for two main reasons:
First, it has everything, including a built-in detergent tank to store your soap and a turbo nozzle to boost your pressure and cleaning speed.
Secondly, it's affordable. Pressure Washers Direct.com is currently selling the new PW1380 for just $169.99, including free shipping and no taxes. If that's still too much for your budget, you can also purchase a reconditioned model for a mere $129.99
1. Karcher G2400HH (http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=166)
The best selling pressure washer in 2004 was ... drum roll, please ... Karcher's G2400HH. This marks the second consecutive year Karcher's 2400 PSI pressure washer topped the charts.
"This is the Goldilocks of Pressure Washers," said Hoch. "It's not too powerful or too weak."
According to Hoch, who personally uses this model at his home, the Karcher 2400 PSI pressure washer is perfect for light-duty and heavy-duty residential use. Its 5-Horsepower Honda engine has plenty of power to tackle the toughest household chores. Plus, it comes with a DirtBlasterÂ® rotating nozzle, which significantly speeds up cleaning time.
