To reduce uncertainty ascertain how long the washer would be used each week and how hard it would have to work. To have a washer working at full tilt all the time will not improve its longevity. It is also important to think about the kind of cleaning required is the dirt caked on? Do you want to clean large floor areas or smaller pieces of equipment. Do you need a hot or cold water version?
Glossary of Cleaning Equipment Terms
It is a common mistake to view a washer with a high pressure rating as being a better option. A pressure washer should be selected based on what it is expected to clean and not on its pressure rating alone. Whilst using cold water under pressure is adequate for most cleaning jobs hot water does give extra cleaning power for stubborn dirt like grease and grime. Some cold water washers can be used with hot water perhaps supplied by a separate heater for added cleaning power. The maximum inlet temperature indicates the level of hot water the machine can take.
