Pressure washers are an important part of American household lifestyle. Millions of models have been purchased by millions of households across the United States since the invention of this useful home and professional appliance. Today there are in excess of 50 pressure washer manufacturers on the US market alone.
Not all the manufacturers and brands on the market today are really high quality pressure washers. Many of them have very poor ratings. There are however a handful of pressure washer manufacturers that have remained on the forefront in terms of market domination. These range from Campbell Hausfeld washers to John Deere pressure washers amongst many others.
One important player on the pressure washer market in America has been Karcher. Karcher pressure washers particularly those that are gas powered have very strong and intimidating positive ratings and reviews online and offline. They enjoy on average 4 out of 5 stars in user satisfaction. In as much as Karcher is particularly strong in gas powered pressure washers, it also manufacturers electric pressure washers which are somewhat less competitive.
To explain why Karcher enjoys this leading role on the market there is need to examine what technically really matters in pressure washer equipment. There are two key components of any washer that determines its performance. This is its engine and its pump. Those are very important and indispensable components of a gas pressure washer. Electric pressure washers have a motor instead of an engine. The motor is electric driven.
Karcher pressure washers have a big backing of being German engineered. They enjoy such remarkable reputation. It is widely accepted that German products are well designed and manufactured. Consequently, Karcher makes some of the most durable pressure washers. These have a Honda engine and a CAT pump the best combination there ever has been in the industry.
In as much as it can be argued that these engine and pump components are not really made by Karcher, overall the credibility has been enjoyed by Karcher perhaps because of its ability to harness the efficiency of these components. Apart from easy to start engines and durable pumps, Karcher also makes handy and well thought-out accessories to go with their pressure washers. In fact in many cases their accessories are multi brand designed and are therefore very popular with owners of other pressure washer brands.
The popularity of Karcher pressure washers has remained very strong in the United States. It remains to be seen how long this will hold out. They provide models of choice for many professional and commercial washer businesses who buy units for rental. Their durability ensures a very good return of investment in the eyes of these investors. They are also reputed for having great power output when cleaning.
In terms of price, Karcher heavy duty models are pitched on their higher side put against many of its competitors on the market today. Due to their reputation many buyers are willing to invest in these units for hope of better returns.
