There are actually four levels or grades of equipment that can be purchased: consumer, pro-sumer, profesional, and commercial. Although there are many differences that make a machine professinal grade over cosumer, the main way a piece of equipment is rated is by pressure (psi) and flow in gallons per minute (gpm). A pressure washer that can be purchased at a Home Depot, Lowe's, or Costco is typically a consumer grade machine with 3000psi or less and a flow rate no greater than 2.5gpm. Professional grade equipment, such as that purchased at Norhtern Tool, will have a minimum 3500psi and vary between 4 to 8gpm. The main difference between professional grade and commercial grade equipment is the internal engine and pump parts. A commercial piece of equipment is typically purchased from a manufacturer to specifications and is designed to operate 8 to 10 hours a day continuously.
The right piece of equipment for the job is also critical. For example, a pool deck may require using 1500 to 1800 psi to protect from damage whereas a large concrete surface cleaner may require 8gpm to operate effectively. Pro-sumer grade equipment can be used to perform limited commercial job applications as long as the operater understands the limits to the equipment.
