Should I Choose an Electric or Gasoline Pressure Washer?  

Posted on: March 10th, 2023 by Mi-T-M | No Comments

After much consideration, you finally decided to invest in a pressure washer. Now comes the task of deciding with model is best for you.

Mi-T-M prides itself in offering a wide range of pressure washers to fit every cleaning need. We cater to many industries to provide the perfect cleaning solution based on many factors. Just one of those factors is deciding between an electric driven pressure washer and a gas driven pressure washer. One of the first questions to ask yourself before making this choice is where your power will come from. Do you have access to electricity wherever you need to clean? If your cleaning needs take you to a location where finding available electricity is going to be a problem, then a gas driven pressure washer is the best choice.

Often customers choose an electric powered pressure washer if they have a need to use it indoors, because the electric motors emit no fuel fumes. For food and beverage companies, such as breweries and commercial kitchens who must keep work surfaces and floors clean and sanitized, an electric powered pressure washer will be the best option.

Mi-T-M offers a large selection of pressure washers in both electric and gas driven models. Many claim that a gas-powered pressure washer is more powerful than electric. However, Mi-T-M manufactures industrial electric pressure washers with up to 5000-PSI of cleaning power. With that much power, an electric pressure washer can tackle most any cleaning job.

Let’s look at some of the key differences between an electric and gas pressure washer that may help with your decision.

Electric Powered

An electric powered pressure washer is affordable and effective. Mi-T-M’s residential line of electric washers typically have a lower upfront cost and require less maintenance than their gas counterparts. They are much easier to start and, as you might guess, are quieter than gas models. Because they are light-weight and user-friendly, Mi-T-M electric pressure washers are very popular in the residential market.

Mi-T-M manufactures both cold and hot water electric pressure washers that are used in commercial and industrial industries. These models are built to withstand even the toughest jobs on construction sites and in commercial and industrial facilities.  The advantages of purchasing an electric pressure washer are great, however, keep in mind, an electric power source must be accessible for you to use them.

Gas Powered

Gas powered pressure washers are known for their durability and that is why you find them most often in the commercial and industrial market places. However, Mi-T-M does manufacture a line of gas powered pressure washers for residential use. Available from 1400 to 3000-PSI, gas pressure washers are great for those who want more portability than an electric washer can offer.

Pressure Washers Residential Commercial Industrial

Mi-T-M manufactures both cold and hot water gas powered pressure washers for commercial and industrial use. They are designed to provide the power, reliability and versatility businesses need. Often found in the agricultural, trucking and construction industries, they are used for property and equipment maintenance and cleaning at commercial and industrial facilities.

Because a gas pressure washer is powered by an internal combustion engine, your maintenance costs will be higher than with an electric pressure washer. Keeping an eye on fuel and oil levels will need to become a part of your regular maintenance routine. Winterizing a gas powered pressure washer requires more effort than electric models, but with proper maintenance and upkeep, your investment will be worth it.

As you can see when it comes to choosing between an electric or gas pressure washer, you’ll need to ask yourself how and where it will be used, what your budget is and how much time you can devote to maintaining your investment. Either way, once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without one.
