Choosing a Jet Washer or Power Washer?

Postby Kieron457 » Tue Aug 20, 2013 9:56 pm

(Apologies if I'm posting this question in the wrong forum!)


I need some advice choosing a jet/pressure washer. It'll probably get used just a few times a year, to clean the patio & drive, and occasionally clean the car (though I'd prefer to just take the car to a car wash!).

I know you get what you pay for and washers can range from £40 up to ehm god knows!!... but my budget is max £100, though I would prefer to pay a little less if I can find one reduced in the sales.

For my limited use, would a washer with the following spec be ok?

flow rate: 360
Pressure(bar): 110
Watts: 1400

E.g. this one "Kärcher K2 Home Air-Cooled Pressure Washer" from Amazon? ... uctDetails

Bearing in mind the washer will be used just a few times a year, your advice/recommendations for a suitable washer would be much appreciated.
