PressureWashr.com will turn two years old on March 14, 2017.
To celebrate, we dug through analytics to find our 10 most shared pages.
You’ll love this stuff… Interesting infographics, charts, quizzes, and special reports.
Take a look:
Pressure washing your car engine can be safe, for sure, but should you even bother?
The pressure the pump can deliver is important only to knocking dirt and grime loose from the surface. PSI doesn’t tell us anything about its ability to carry the debris away from surface before it sticks again. For that, we need to look at the flow rate in gallons per minute (GPM).
More experienced power washer users will know about cleaning units (CUs), which is GPM x PSI. A 2,000 PSI machine with 2 GPM has 4,000 CUs. Combining PSI and GPM into one number gives a better idea of total cleaning power/ability.
Are they in city skyscrapers or a sprawling corporate campus outside of town?
Are the executives swimming in rooftop pools? Is there a chef, free laundry service and barber like all the Silicon Valley companies have?
Or, are they ordinary, focused on shareholder value with minimal perks and just floors-and-floors of cubicles and corner offices?
Let’s use Google Earth and take a look what can be seen. Here are 22 birds-eye view pics of the global headquarters of USA favorite tool, equipment and construction machinery companies like Caterpillar, John Deere and Snap-on.
PressureWashr.com spent 56 hours investigating the global hand & power tool industry.
The goal was to find the tool companies who make and who own most of the tool brands you know and love.
All the research is boiled down into two useful infographics:
Below each graphic is an in-depth look how the data was found (tax forms, annual reports etc.) and any assumptions made. Enjoy.
With United States as the region and 2016 as the timeframe, each tool and equipment brand was input to Google Trends to find the state it was most searched relative to total searches.
Your state’s favorite tool/equipment brand is not the most searched in total, but the most searched relative to your state’s total searches compared to all other states.
For example, Google Trends data for Bernie Sanders in 2016 shows he’s most popular in Vermont. This makes sense because it’s his home state.
In fact, in 2016, Forbes ranked Honda Motor Company the 23rd most valuable brand in the world with a brand value of $25.2B.
Vision of the Honda red engine on power products is often all the convincing we need the product is reliable, good quality and great value.
For this reason, 51 power equipment companies choose Honda engines to power their equipment…
… And in total, 16 pressure washer brands choose Honda small engines to power their pressure washers.
Not mechanic or firefighter tools… But a gift they will use in everyday life, which includes home, gym, park, lake and everywhere in between.
Here’s the deal:
My 2 best friends are a mechanic and fireman and we recently spent 3 hours going through all these types of lists:
You know the lists… Gimmicky coffee mugs, slogan tee shirts and weird bottle openers… These lists mostly suck…
So we created a better gift ideas for firefighters and mechanics list and hope you love it.
Seriously, pressure washer safety is no joke. Have you seen the injuries a power washer’s jet spray can cause?
The sad thing is most pressure washer injuries are 100% avoidable. Don’t be stupid. Just because you are around the house doesn’t mean you should wear flip flops and treat the pressure washer like a super soaker…
Because high pressure injection injuries should not be underestimated – here’s my first hand experience:
A few years back a long time co-worker of mine was rushed to hospital.
He was lucky.
His spotter acted fast because he knew the severity of the injury.
Here’s what happened:
People that succeed with a pressure washing business do two things very well:
