Hot Water Pressure Washers

Cam Spray has always believed in keeping it simple and we said we would make it easy for you! Your new hot water pressure washer will need power to drive the pump system. Here you will need to choose if the machine will be powered by an electric motor, gasoline engine or a diesel engine.  Just click on the way you want to power your next pressure washer and you are one step closer.
 

Electrically powered equipment is quiet & efficient

Electric powered hot water pressure washer motors are a very efficient way to power a pressure washer. The actual cost of operation varies by the horsepower of the motor, but compared to gas or diesel fuel, the electric motor is less expensive to operate. The average industrial motor can last 2 to 3 times longer than an engine and require less routine maintenance.
 
However, sometimes the restrictions of an electrical power cord can limit where these machines can be operated. Pay close attention when choosing an electrically powered machine to the rating of the power source. You need adequate electrical service to handle the load of an industrial hot water pressure washer. Hot water pressure washers operate at full load capacities at all times and require consistent electrical supply. Remember, never use an extension cord as it will degrade the available power and can cause motor failure. Always be sure the hot water pressure washer you choose has a GFCI device molded into the power cord or is permanently wired into a circuit with a GFCI breaker in the electrical panel. The GFCI, (ground fault circuit interrupter) is a device that protects people from electrical shock, your life may depend upon it and it is a requirement in most cities and states.
 

Gasoline & Diesel power keeps you mobile

Gas powered and diesel powered hot water pressure washer engines keep you pressure washing wherever you need to get things clean. They will require periodic maintenance and daily checks of the crankcase oil level and air filter to perform at their best and provide longer, trouble-free service life. Both gas and diesel engines are great choices when you want to be free to go clean wherever your heart desires!
 
There are some things to consider with gas-powered hot water pressure washers. Gasoline engines are much more economical than an industrial duty diesel engine to purchase. We sell many more gas-powered hot water pressure washers and we do diesel powered hot water pressure washers, possibly for that reason alone.
 
However, our diesel engine models are purchased for good reasons. The diesel engine application is where the equipment is operating 8 to 10 hours a day, 7 days a week, sometimes in critical applications. The United States military prefers to use the Hatz® air-cooled diesel on equipment as their first choice for those reasons. They depend on them to operate in the worst conditions, all day long, and every day of the year. For that reason, Cam Spray uses only Hatz® diesel engines on our diesel powered hot water pressure washers.
 
Be sure to remember, as with any engine driven product, they are designed to be operated outdoors in well-ventilated areas. They do produce carbon monoxide, a deadly gas that is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. Gas and diesel engines also operate in decibel ranges that can cause hearing loss, so always use ear protection when operating gas or diesel engine driven equipment.      
 
We also offer a full line of cold water pressure washers.
