I am thinking of upgrading my old K1 series pressure washer as it has begun to make rather loud growling noise - probably on it's last legs :rolleyes:

Has anyone got any recommendations on Kärcher Pressure Washers? I was thinking about something like a K4.99 or even K5.80 but that may be a tad over kill!

They are good and you can easily get parts etc. but which one to go for is my problem. My K1 has served me well - it may even keep going but I think it has seen better days. Fir it's size it has done a hell of a lot of work. At one point it was being used in a undertakers for washing all the cars as theirs was out of action!

I had a wee Karcher, but I'm onto a larger Bosch one now :) It's effortless and much faster at patios etc.

Kew are the dogs boll*ks. thats what ive got. its brilliant. karcher are ok, but -

B & Qs own brand pressure washer at £129.99 is better (more bar pressure) bigger motor, more extras than the equivelently priced karcher. AND instead of having 1 years parts and labour (like the karcher has), the b&Q one has 3 years!!!:bananasmi

what could be better!!?
