1969, Landa has been the leader in pressure washers, providing the highest quality
in hot-water and cold-water washers with more than 300 models today.
washers clean faster, better and easier than any other method. Surprisingly, they
also conserve water, using only a fraction of the water that you would use in
cleaning with a garden hose. Pressure washers work so well because they combine
these essential elements of cleaning:
volume, measured in gallons per minute (GPM)
or pressure, measured in pounds per square inch (PSI)
or detergents, which are injected into the spray;
and, for some models...
or steam, which is especially effective in cutting grease and other oily surfaces.
Water or Hot Water?
washers come in two major categories:
for blasting dirt or debris, stripping paint, and washing most surfaces.
Hot water, for even more effective cleaning of
dirt along with grease and grime.
type of Power?
the water choice is made, there are options in both groups, such as:
Typically used indoors because there are no fumes and they are quieter.
or diesel-powered: Self-contained and portable so they can be used in the
field (no electric cords); all you need is water.
Things to Consider:
Mounted on wheels so the pressure washer can be moved to the cleaning action.
Stationary: Used most often in fixed wash bays where portability is
Indicative of industrial models; the belt connecting the engine or motor with
the high-pressure pump dissipates the heat and vibration, minimizes the wear and
thus the repair on key components, and extends the life of the pump by reducing
the RPM demand.
Direct-Drive: Pump is directly coupled to the engine
or motor causing the pump to spin twice as fast as the belt drive models; not
recommended for unlimited usage.
hot-water pressure washers only, there are these two more choices:
Oil / Diesel-Heated: For use outdoors, it offers the most flexibility with
portability and ready-access to fuel;
Electric-Heated: For use indoors; no
fumes, but also no portability.
Natural Gas: Used mostly indoors;
fumes can be vented, but no portability.
