Default Birthday's coming up.

And I'd like your thoughts on PRESSURE WASHERS Chaps & chapesses.

Which is 'best', which is a 'best buy' and which is most efficient (not alwa=ys the same thing).

Cheers, Tony

depends what you want it for, pointless getting one that's bigger & heavier than you need.
a rotating lance is a lot more powerful, patio cleaning rotating brush less messy. B&Q often have reductions in store, Karcher compact was 1/2 price & included extra accessories, atm online a 120 one is 75. oddly if you look at the reviews their cheap one gets A1 scores despite an assistant saying it was . we paid 35 & it's been fine for 2 yrs, standard fitting so used an old rotating nossle
don't think there's a lot between them, similar pressure & water use. some you can use from a water butt if on a water meter

certainly a useful tool, but wouldn't use it for vehicle cleaning

Default Only fixed it hasn't me!

The trouble was at the nozzle end. 2 flat plates narrow or widen to achieve the required spray shape, this is done by 2 plastic wedges riding up on internal cams. One was missing affecting the back pressure sensing valve. Knocked up and fitted another wedge - sorted.

Who'se a clever boy then? ? ? So if your pressure wsher is just cycling on and off repeatedly, try the nozzle.

Cheers, Tony.
