We talked about pressure washers already, and we already established that there are different types of pressure washers out there, not just electric ones. Today we’ll talk about gas pressure washers, the pressure washers of choice for many people who are looking to pressure wash remote areas that don’t have access to any power outlets.
We would do well to point out right from the start that there are barely any differences between electric and gas-powered pressure washers in terms of strength, so no worries there. We should also mention that prices don’t differ that much either, especially as far as standard pressure washers are concerned. So let us then find out what are the ten best gas pressure washers out there.
10Powerplay Hot Rod 3100 PSI Axial Pump Gas Pressure Washer
The ‘Hot Rod’ pressure washer from PowerPlay benefits from a powerful 2.5 GPM Honda GCV190 Engine equipped with Annovi Reverberi Axial High-Pressure Pump. It also benefits from a quick assembly design with a powder coated frame and a Motorsports inspired construction with run flat tires. At the same time, it comes equipped with a premium 25’x1/4″ hose with EZ connect fittings and an integrated 4 L soap tank.
9PowerBoss 20309 2.5-GPM 3000-PSI Gas Pressure Washer
Intended as a portable pressure washer, the PowerBoss 20309 is a lot more maneuverable than most other pressure washers in its class. For this purpose, it was equipped with 10″ never-go-flat wheels that make it easier for you to move the washer around even in rough terrain. It is also equipped with a powerful Honda GC190 engine that creates up to 3000 PSI of pressure at the nozzle while its detergent injection system infuses cleaning solution straight into the water stream for a faster, more convenient cleaning.
8DEWALT DXPW3835 3,800 PSI 3.5 GPM Gas Pressure Washer
This particular gas-powered pressure washer from Dewalt is equipped with a potent 3.5 GPM Honda engine that will put out up to 3,800 PSI at all times. Thanks to its peculiar hose, you will often get better results than you would by using any other type of pressure washer, even though this also makes it difficult to find a spare when the need arise to change it. We should also point out that the price of such a powerful device is also a bit steep, but it does make sense given its strength.
7Powerplay Hot Rod 2700 PSI Annovi Reverberi Axial Pump Gas Pressure Washer
The 2700 PSI version of the ‘Hot Rod’ is a lot more affordable than the 3100 PSI version, but don’t think for a second that it affects its cleaning capabilities in any way. As a matter of fact, due to its clever pressure distribution, it can do everything it is expected of it and then some. It also benefits from a powerful 2.3 GPM Honda GCV160 engine and an Annovi Reverberi Axial High-Pressure Pump that makes cleaning hard surfaces much easier.
6Generac 6602 OneWash 4-In-1 PowerDial 3
When it comes to gas-powered pressure washers, Generac is one of the best manufacturers in the business. Their 6-generation pressure washers are among the most powerful out there, especially the 6602 OneWash 4-in-1 PowerDial 3 which like the name suggests, provides a more versatile pressure-washing experience. Equipped with a comfort-grip handle and a consolidated control panel, it is also one of the most maneuverable pressure washers on the market.
5Ford FPWG2700H-J Gas Powered Pressure Washer
Ford’s FPWG2700H-J pressure washer is equipped with an 180cc 5.0 HP OHV engine with an axial cam high-pressure pump which develops a 2700 PSI pressure and a rated flow of 2.3 GPM. It also has 3 quick connect spray nozzles, a soap nozzle, and a built-in reservoir for good measure. As far as maneuverability goes, this pressure washer has a fold-down handle, a single onboard soap tank, and 10″ never-flat tires.
4Generac 6596 Pressure Washer
As we pointed out earlier, Generac’s pressure washers are designed to provide strength and reliability at all times, which explains the 196cc OHV gas-powered engine. Thanks to an efficient axial cam pump with easy-access hose connections, it can alleviate kneeling issues while its ergonomic spray gun with cushion grip makes it much easier to handle the device. We should also point out that its 25′ PVC hose connects to the rear of the spray gun for maximum convenience.
3Simpson PS3228-S PowerShot
The PS3228-S from Simpson Cleaning uses a GX200 OHV Honda engine with Oil Alert, an engine designed to deliver an impressively high output power. Therefore, this particular pressure washer can develop a 3200 PSI pressure power via its AAA industrial triplex plunger pump with ceramic coated pistons and a PowerBoost technology that ensures a much higher pressure at the nozzle which translates into a much greater impact force.
2Generac 6598 Residential Pressure Washer
The 6598 is perhaps Generac’s finest pressure washer, a device that uses a powerful 212cc OHV engine which delivers maximum cleaning performance and reliability at all times. It has an axial cam pump with easy-access hose connections, two integrated 3/4 gallon tanks that provide convenient onboard storage for cleaning solutions, a high-performance spray gun with thick cushion grips, and a longer barrel for added stability among a few other interesting features.
1Simpson MSH3125-S MegaShot
Equipped with a powerful Honda GC190 OHC premium gas-powered engine, the MSH3125-S from Simpson Cleaning is more or less the perfect gas-powered pressure washer. It includes maintenance-free OEM technologies designed to increase its durability, an axial cam brass head pump with PowerBoost technology for higher nozzle pressure, a pro-style steel spray wand with 5 quick connect nozzle tips, and a welded frame construction for good measure. Overall, this particular pressure washer features every single capability you should expect from a high-end gas-powered pressure washer and then some.
