Default Pressure washers

I see all kinds. I have a gas powered one for medium duty work. I'm thinking of an inexpensive one (electric) to use for the cars.

OK, so I see ones mounted in a truck with a tank. There is no pressure on the feed side but they do run on gas. Is there a difference? For what I'm thinking I'd like it to suck up the water to be used.

Well most pressure washers don't have a suction pump on the water inlet side. They rely on the water pressure from the garden hose you hook to it. A self contained pressure washer with a water tank will usually have a pump to pump the water from the storage tank to the washer at about 40 psi.

Is this what your asking?
