I know everyone like the good old pressure washer dont they!

So what one does everyone have?

Mine broke today, i had a cheap one, so i took it back and got myself a Karcher K2.19. Its only basic, but it should do! I havent used it yet, but i proably will do tomorrow.

I want to get a snow foam accessory thing for it! lol.

I used mine today, my car was minging with proper hard stuck on mud and dirt... and the pressure washer got if off with no hassel. I only went over it briefly and it was all gone when i looked! Now going to invest in longer hose for the gun so i dont have to keep moving the unit around, also some car brushes and snow foam attatchment.

I would recommend it to anyone! Especially if you are on a small budget, you can pick these up for just under £50.

i would never use brushes on paintwork for fear of inflicting scratches/swirls, but snowfoam is great fun lol

i got one of these a few weeks back after my old one decided to start leaking oil

http://www.karcher.co.uk/product.php?pr=399

i found this ideal for doing around the car cos it just rolls where you want it to like a hoover :) so you dont have to keep stopping to pick it up and move it

i got a small Karcher bottle from ebay cheap to do the foaming part

lol, comparing the stats to the karcher ones it pisses all over the the more expensive ones in the karcher range but not sure how accurate it is in real life.

but if someone has posted a new thread about pressure washers some smart arse would have linked this in - surely that is the point of a thread on the same subject?
