Power washer and pressure washers are quite similar machines that we used for outside cleaning tasks. The difference between pressure and power washer machine is the hot water; that is used in power machine while pressure washer is tend with normal water.
Usually a pressure washer machine comes with 1200 PSI to 4000 PSI and 1.2 GPM to 4000 GPM flow of water. These machines are used for cleaning outside muddy areas of home, resorts, offices, hotels, and related such as; driveways, park blocks, Greasy concrete surface, outside stairs, main gate, car servicing and many others.
In the market we have long chain of these machines on different designs and sizes. The price of a pressure/power machine is depending on the size and the quality of a machine. Some are available on cheap prizes having local material and lack of features while many are highly expensive.
Basically an expensive machine is well featured also well made. Professionals use expensive and highly considerable machines for toughest tasks just like Simpson machine.

My personal review:
I was not happy with my previous pressure washer machine due to its lack of features and ordinary design. I am very serious about my house cleaning especially outside areas. We all know that outside area of a particular place is not easy to maintain as compare to the inside.
We all need special equipment and a lot of strength to do. My disappointment was finished when a friend suggested me to buy and use Simpson PS3228 PowerShot Gas Pressure Washer. At first, I just thought it should be an ordinary pressure washer as others, but I was completely wrong.
Within a couple of days, my friend ordered this machine on amazon especially for me and I got my parcel in two days. Don’t you believe? I just put my finger in the mouth when I saw the robust design. Later all its features were also shocking for me for the very first time. Today I am cheerily using the “Simpson PS3228 PowerShot” machine and suggesting this machine to everyone.
Frequently asked questions:
Why do pressure washer pumps fail?
Cavitation and overheating are the two most important issues concerning breakdowns of pressure washer pump. Both of these are occurring due to excessive time of its use. When there is not enough water supplied to the pump then cavitation occurs. Pump failure issues are very easy to indicate.
How often should you change pressure washer pump oil?
In every 200 to 250 hours of working we should change the pump oil in pressure washers. If a person uses this machine often then in every three months pump oil should be changed anyhow. Otherwise for rare use twice in a year is a must.
Can I start my pressure washer without water?
A quick answer to this question is yes you can but we will not advise you to do this. Starting a pressure washer machine without water can easily damage the engine. If a user starts this machine without water means he is increasing the risk of damage of the internal mechanism of this machine.
Do you have to put oil in a pressure washer pump?
Make sure not all types of pressure washers are requiring oil to use. Often residential machines come with a sealed pump means no more need for oil. These types of machines are manufactured with a complete amount of oil and later they have been sealed. For maintenance purposes, if this pump leak then you may easily replace it.
