Karcher K2 Home & Car 110bar Pressure Washer 1.4kW 240V
Excellent value for money and a very powerful pressure washer for its size. I have had higher pressure washers that tend to spray too much water but this model is perfect and does not leave you,in a flood. One slight problem is the handle is a push fit and mine has come loose within a couple of uses.

Great Pressure Washer
This thing is mental. The driveway and path outside now looks like new after decades of grime was washed off in a couple of hours with no detergent at all.
Yet to try the patio cleaner but it looks like it is going to also be great.
Might was the cars first though....;]

Karcher - small but mighty
Super simple to assemble straight from the box in minutes (give the handle a sharp knock to secure), comes with 'Hozelock' style male adaptor so you need a hosepipe with female connector.
I fed this from a water butt (albeit raised about 3m) with no trouble at all - just make sure you prime the hose through. The flow from the 1/2" hose before connecting to the Karcher was about 6-8 litres per minute.
Car hosed down; shampooed (with Karcher supplied bottle which is awesome - like a snowstorm of foam); brushed and rinsed off using only about 50L and in less than 20 mins!
The deck / patio adaptor is good for keeping the surrounding area clean although I found the separate pulsing lance much better and faster at cleaning moss from the driveway.
The jet is perfectly adequate for cleaning cars, bikes, driveways, decks, walls etc..... in fact much stronger and you'd be driving moisture into area's it shouldn't be (like bearings / wood grain etc).
Can't praise the little machine enough - guess I'm easily pleased haha!

I bought this k2 14 months ago to replace my old one.it washed my garden furniture, fences,decking,patio,drive and car a few times over with ease because of all the extra gadgets my Mrs said.
Unfortunately the k2 broke so I rang screwfix and it was no problem at all.they emailed me a copy of my receipt and told me to take it to a repair shop around the corner.I picked it up the next day all working fine at no cost to me.all I can say is with a after service like that (second to none)and with it being over a year and I had misplaced my receipt .if and when I buy my next power tool it will only be from screwfix.
