While specifications are important, the hardware within the machine should be recognized as well. The quality of the hardware parts determines the durability of the machine. The following are some tips for choosing durable pressure washers.
Pressure washer equipment should be constructed from sturdy materials. The output pressure of top pressure washers can be as high as 8000 psi, though pressure levels are often lower for steam or tri-temperature machines as the high temperatures provide unmatched power. The body of the machine should be strong enough to withstand exposure to both high-powered and high temperature output. The buyer should ensure that the housing and cabinet of the machine should be made of powder-coated steel to help protect against chips and chemicals.
Quality pressure washers should have long lasting components, as well. For example, hoses are exposed to high pressure water running through them. If the hose is not constructed of durable materials, it will wear out quickly. Good machines have hoses made of wire-reinforced rubber. Hoses with two coatings of wire reinforcement are often preferred.
