2000 to 3500 PSI pressure washers are suitable for more robust applications such as removing loose paint, mold, grime, embedded dust, mud, and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles and concrete surfaces. This category of machine will also be able to successfully utilize additional features such as surface cleaners, sand blasters, extension hoses, etc.

3500 to 5000 PSI pressure washers are used for very demanding applications such as stucco cleaning, barn cleaning, driveways, pavers, etc. These pressure washers are best suited for professional applications and commercial pressure washing. If misused these washers could easily cause damage or injury.

For de-greasing engines or equipment use hot water washers. The scope of your project will determine your pressure needs. Occasional cleaning of a car engine, grill or spot on a driveway does not require super-high pressure (2000 psi or less is adequate), while weekly cleaning of heavy machinery or industrial equipment may require machines of 3000 psi or more.
