How much PSI will rip paint off?
It's not just the PSI that matters though, as the degree of spray will make a huge difference. 0/15/30 etc. Again as you stated however - common sense applies.Electric pressure washers will be completely safe on your paint. Before my Kranzle, I used to use a 3000 psi gas washer without any problems. I would even run it along my XPel film edges. Like anything else....common sense applies.
I currently use a cheap electric washer and I've never had problems even at full blast but I'm considering upgrading to gas powered and don't want to run into any issues with paint chipping.Depends on the tip you use and how close you get. And the quality of the paint.
Does anyone know of a good place to buy a replacement triplex pump for a good price. I had a pressure washer given to me. I got the motor running but the pump is scrapped. Found some on ebay or Amazon for around $300. Im only in this thing $40 for a carb kit so I don't mind buying a decent pump. Any insight would be helpful.

@ Jumbo Jet how is the foam with the Kranzle? I'm considering an electric pressure washer to switch my current gas washer. Would you mind posting some pictures or video when you use the Kranzle with a foam cannon? Thank you Sir.I'm using a Kranzle 1622 with a 50' non marking hose and a custom spray wand I built for detailing. It's a simple 4000 psi handle with zero extension. Works amazing for whipping it around in tight spots. Paired with an Uber/MTM foam canon. Gilmour garden hose gun is just for light sudsing at best. You'll need a foam canon and pressure washer for proper, thick foaming.
I've tried quite a few electric Home Depot/Lowes pressure washers and they all were throw away, junk machines. The Kranzle is German made, it's a tank. It has the ability to run dry as well as pull its own water source from a lake or swimming pool. Kranzle does not use proprietary hose fittings. It uses industry standard commercial tips and quick connects. I have paired my Kranzle with an Eley wall mount, aluminum hose reel with a 100' Eley Polyurethane hose with Eley brass quick connect couplers. It's a great set up.
Not all pressure washer spray tips are the same. Even though the color codes for the spray patterns are industry standard, be sure you are using the correct pressure tip for the GPM your machine uses. It makes a world of difference. You can find the size chart on MTM's website. Pressure Washers Direct is a great site to do your research too. They have a ton of info.
Best of luck in your search. Hope you find a great pressure washer.
It does look just like my Über/MTM canon. Maybe someone will give it a shot and report back. ?
I use a water filter system inline with the pressure washer/foam cannon. It removes a lot of the minerals since we have hard water here in NM. If your truck is really dirty you'll still need to hand wash it to remove the stuck on dirt. The foam will loosen a lot of the dirt and let if float without having to drag that on the clear coat reducing swirls. I also use the 2 bucket method. Hope this helps.Maybe I'm missing something. I've never been happy with the results from either a wand car wash or the new style HP car washes, they all seem to leave a dirt film behind. How does one use a pressure washer with a foam gun and not have a dirt film left behind? Pretty much the same thing as the local car wash. At first glance it may seem clean, hit it with some quick detailer and a white microfiber and I normally see dirt.
