Thinking about buying a Honda engine gas pressure washer? Before you buy one, read my expert buying tips to learn what to look for -- and stay within your budget.
Let's first talk about why you should consider buying a power washer with a Honda engine -- then lets talk about what you should look for before investing in one.
Why should you considering choosing a gas pressure washer with a Honda engine? Especially when you can find units with generic or "no-name" engines so much cheaper?
Because Honda really has an outstanding reputation for long life, quieter performance, higher power output -- with superior reliability and less breakdowns.
Their hard-working engine reputation is also backed up by their two and three year warranty, on pressure washer engines, through their vast network of authorized Honda engine dealers. Currently there are over 14,000 Honda dealers!
Also, genuine Honda parts are easy to find, in stores on and on the internet, if you need them.
Subaru, Generac, Briggs & Stratton, Kohler and other name brands engines are good too. But I just think most people would agree that Honda engines are the gold standard for power washers.
Yes, there's no doubt you'll pay a few more dollars for a Honda engine, when compared to a "no-name" or generic engine. But, in my experience, the longer engine life, less break-downs and the great warranty is definitely worth it. I swear by Honda engines on my own gas pressure washers.
If your budget can take it, you really should consider investing in a Honda engine gas pressure washer. In the long run, you'll have a better engine and better value.
Whether you decide on a gas pressure washer with Honda engine, or not, there here are some important buying tips to keep in mind when you're shopping:
CHECK THE RATINGS: In order to accurately compare pressure washers compare the PSI and GPM of all units you look at.
PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) means the pressure or power of the water that comes out of the pressure washer. The higher the PSI, the more pressure and cleaning power you'll get. Generally speaking, most gas pressure washers for homeowners have PSI ratings of 2,200 to 4,000+.
GPM (Gallons per Minute) is the how fast the water flows through your power washer.
CONSIDER THE PUMP BRANDS: Your pump puts the pressure in your water and it works incredibly hard. The best type of pump for a homeowners pressure washer is an axial cam pump. Some brands of quality axial cam pump brands include: Comet, CAT, General, AR and Briggs and Stratton. And, of course, there are always generic or no-name pumps too.
Keep this information in mind while you're shopping and you'll choose the perfect gas pressure washers for you cleaning jobs and budget!
