Here's What Happens When You Spray A Car With A 40,000PSI Jet Washer

This 3000 bar power washer predictably makes an unholy mess of the Peugeot 206 it's pointed at

Remind me later

Pressure washers are a great tool for the home detailer. When used correctly they can get rid of that nasty top layer of muck to save you from smearing it all over your car, and with the right accessory, you can deploy the joyous substance known as snow foam.

The pressure on offer from the average domestic system will put out around 1900psi, but the machine you see here? That’s capable of quite a bit more. You’re looking at 43,500psi or 3000 bar.

As such, it’s not really home car care material. When inflicted upon a poor, innocent vehicle like the old Peugeot 206 you see here, it’s more an instrument of destruction.
