    Pressure Washer deal

    Whilst I look at trying to get a pressure washer for my shiny new motor, I came across this karcher big boy...

    looked pretty good and I could use if on the patio...

    I really have no idea tho on pressure washers and have had a look at some of the posts on here and people dont seem to have had much luck with karcher, or maybe the lower end of the karcher range?

    Any comments?

    I've used Karchers (low end and high end) for the last six years, and never had any real issues with them; only one needed a pump replaced, and that was after several years of extended use. My old K399 served me well at home, and was ample enough for car cleaning duties. The new equivalent is this one...

    Maybe the one you have chosen is a bit overspecced? That said, bigger can be better, but unless you are getting hot water at pressure then the little domestic ones will perform just as well as the big boy domestic ones when it comes to cleaning your car.

    cheers Rich.... over specced no doubt... its a weakness.

    picked up one like the robert dyas link for 150 in B&Q this easter weekend...

    Used it this weekend... all good. Though I think I need some cleaner for it.
