Cold pressure washers exploit the water pressure obtained by an engine fed piston pump. The higher the engine power, the higher the pressure and the more effective the cleaning will be. The ICE Wash machines use a nozzle and chemical detergent, which helps break down dirt and incrustations.
Hot water pressure washers have a coil which heats the water pumped by the pistons. This heat comes out of the nozzle and a temperature that breaks down grease and oil derived compounds.
