I've had one of the Karcher X-series 1800psi electric units for a couple years now, and it does the trick. It is always stored inside, so I never forget to bring it in if it goes below freezing in the spring/fall. I've been careful with the unit and the wand/hose as they're obviously residential-grade, but it hasn't given me any trouble yet. I try to avoid frequent start/stop, keeping the trigger on as often as I can manage when I'm using it.
