Any US made elec pressure washers out there?

exgm(-5 ON)May 24, 2011

Looking to replace an Italian made Kodiak (electric) pressure washer that finally gave up after years of service. Are there any US made units out there? I tried a Karcher (China) that lasted all of 5 minutes before expiring (returned) and from what I read in the user-reviews all over they are all pretty much the same now.



Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Electrics are almost 100% imported. I have an older Karcher which was made in Germany and still going after 12 years.

You can get higher end gas engine washers, as long as they have CAT or General pumps. However, the prime movers might well be imported (Honda, Kohler, some Briggs). Also, I believe some lower end CAT are made overseas.
