Tell me more about Power Washers

In general, these products are connected to a water source outside a home or business. The electric powered machines would be connected to a power source with a power cable, while a gas powered machine uses fuel (sometimes mixed with oil) to power the unit. The electric washers have buttons to begin operation, while the gas washers are started with a pull cord (as a push lawn mower is typically started). The electric power washers have fewer mechanical parts, however have less power exerted from the nozzle. Gas power washers can be much more powerful, which is typically measured in PSI units.
