Electric Power Washers?

I had one about 10 years ago and it wasn't very good. I switched to a gas unit which worked well for a few years and then needed constant attention to keep running. It's time for a new washer and would like to not have to deal with gas again. Are there any good electric units out there?

My mother bought one from {shudder} QVC {shudder} a few years ago. After she passed, my brother ended up with. FWIW, he loves it. And doesn't borrow my gas power washer anymore

Hate to say it but sometimes you cant beat the prices on those QVC type channels.

So I have both electric and petrol...all electric units are pretty much the same. Buy a well known brand and you wont go wrong for the small jobs like washing down that outdoor kitchen for winter!

That looks like a nice unit. The 20a outlet requirement might be a deal breaker for me. The back yard has a 15a GGI dependent setup. I need to explore this a bit more. Thanks!

Karcher use to make some pretty decent electric units. Not sure anymore. Depends upon how much pressure you need I guess. I think most of the Electrics top out around 2,000 psi..

I had borrowed a 1600 psi electric from a friend to do the deck once, wasn't really enough umphh..

Ended up buying a 2,600 psi Troybuilt With a Honda GC series Engine. Works pretty well, has required minimal upkeep, gets used once or twice a year, and is about 5 years old now. I try to always keep the gas on hand with stabilizer in it, and that seems to help alot..
