More powerful sure but how's a gas powered pressure washer more convenient?

It takes about a quarter of the time, on tough jobs.

For starters, you don't have to plug it in. Electric pressure washers are also laughably weak compared to their gas brethren.

In what conceivable way are electric pressure washers more convenient?

Very little maintenance.

My Husqvarna doesn't even need oil changes. You have to flush the water pump every winter no matter what type you have. Same maintenance.

You still have to put gas in it and run it dry or other wintering to prevent stale gas issues. With electric, all you do is plug it in and unplug it.

I have a gas pressure washer and as someone noted, electric is just not strong enough for my needs.

Storing a gas-powered anything dry is the wrong way to go about it. You should be mixing stabilizer in your fuel anyway. Always store it full of stabilized fuel...

You think filling it with fuel is less convenient than being tethered to an outlet?

I see. You did not intent for anyone to respond. I'll respect that next time.

Obviously gas and electric pressure washers have their pros and cons. You aren't pressure washing your house with an electric, and you aren't pressure washing your car with a gas (unless you like living on the edge or it has adjustable pressure). Also gas washers with honda engines are more preferred. I just bought the craftsman pressure washer with this same engine for 300 from lowes (ended up being 10% off with gift cards i got with chase points). Anyone experienced, would it be worth the extra 50 bucks (plus no discount) to return and get this one? I mainly will be powerwashing my house and concrete patio/driveway. The craftsman one came with a free second story kit.

Not accurate. Store them dry. Hell echo tools state it in the manual

I'm looking at my Husqvarna manual right now that says to store it wet with stabilizer...

You never store anything that takes fuel dry! No offense but you are probably the type of person I make a lot of money off of in the spring
