I borrowed a friend's electric washer to clean my garage floor, and it took
a long time.  The smaller units will clean well IF you hold the nozzle
closer to the work surface, but that means they clean more slowly.

If you want to do the entire driveway, an electric model would not
be a wise choice.

P.S.  When we sold your house last fall, we paid people to do a lot of work
that I would normally have done myself.  I just had too little time, and too 
things to worry about.
