Heavy-duty industrial cleaning jobs require heavy-duty solutions. One option? Trailer-mounted pressure washers built to handle the toughest messes at most job sites. With so many models, styles, and configurations of trailer-mounted power washers available, selecting the best equipment for your application can be challenging. The Cam Spray experts created this trailer-mounted pressure washer buying guide to simplify your process. 

Considerations for Buying a Trailer-Mounted Power Washer

An industrial pressure washer is a considerable investment for most businesses, and selecting the right equipment for your goals is critical. Trailer-mounted pressure washers require no external water supply and usually come already mounted to road-ready trailers. As a result, buying considerations for trailer-mounted power washers can include a variety of components and features. Consider the following specifications before making your purchase:
  • Water tank capacity
  • Pump capabilities and PSI requirements
  • Engine configuration and fuel type
  • Necessary safety equipment, such as taillights, turn signals, axles, wheels, and other options
  • Hose reel and wand setup requirements
Other considerations can apply depending on the needs of your application. Visit our Ultimate Guide to Pressure Washers or call 800-648-5011 for assistance identifying which power washer considerations are most important for your planned use. 

Is a Cold Water or Hot Water Trailer-Mounted Power Washer Better?

Hot water and cold water trailer-mounted pressure washers are each suited to different tasks, and which is best for your application will vary depending on your requirements:
  • Choose hot water trailer-mounted pressure washers for cleaning grease, oil, and fat, or to meet hygienic washdown procedure regulations. Hot water power washers are a good option for heavy-duty jobs.
  • Choose cold water trailer-mounted power washers for all-purpose cleaning, lower-cost operations, and jobs requiring lighter weight or more compact designs. Cold water pressure washers can complete 95% of cleaning applications without needing heated water.

Truck-Mounted Power Washers vs. Trailer-Mounted Power Washers

Truck-mounted and trailer-mounted pressure washers both deliver mobile cleaning at remote job sites but have a few key differences. While many purchasers may be tempted by truck-mounted equipment due to the generally lower upfront cost, a trailer-mounted pressure washer is a much more versatile investment.

A truck-mounted power washer is attached directly to your vehicle. This limits the use of that vehicle to a single purpose, takes up truck space, and doesn’t leave room to expand your equipment to meet the evolving needs of your business. On the other hand, trailer-mounted power washers offer:
  • Increased mobility
  • Ability to attach trailer to a new vehicle as needed
  • Higher level of safety and security
  • Easy to expand or modify to meet changing needs
  • And much more!
