What kind of pressure washer should I use to clean my car and my deck?
If you need a pressure washer for cleaning your deck or siding a couple times a year, then look for a cold water model with about 5 HP or 110 volts. Gas models tend to perform better than electric models, but if you really want an electric power washer, make sure you get one with a pump from a top quality manufacturer. (AR, Karcher, Legacy, Comet and General are all good choices). The Generac 5987-0 Gas Powered Pressure Washer and the Karcher K3.740 Electric Cold Water Pressure Washer are both good options for consumers.
