If your really into detailing you’ll always have come across the thought of purchasing a pressure washer for your car, to really clean off the dirt before washing the car. It’s also especially useful when washing the wheel wells and wanting to get a nice clean surface.
One of the better brands for pressure washers is Karcher, and is what I use on my car when I want to power away all the grimy bugs that love to sit on the front of my bumper – and believe me on a white car these bugs are terribly noticeable. The Karcher machine I use is the Karcher 1800 PSI Electric Pressure Washer. It offers the right amount of pressure to clean the paint, while not being too much water pressure. I find 1800 psi gives you that extra power in the wheel wells that the 1600 PSI karcher version may lack in.
This model right now for people in Canada is on sale (starting tomorrow!) for $229 – which is a cool savings of $50. You can find this deal at any of your local Canadian Tire.
As you can see in the picture, some of the features are the Water cooled engine, N-Cor indirect drive pump with Dirtblaster and Vario Power spray wands. Now if you’ve come across our blog looking for a sale on the Karcher, but are from the US – you will get quite a good deal at Amazon which is around the $200 mark as of writing this post.
You can even double this up for your car detailing and as a power washer to clean wood that needs to be restained, or even just dirt build up on concrete surfaces.
