    Default Looking to purchase a power washer

    Hey folks. Think i'm gonna take the plunge and get a wee power washer for myself.

    Cant seem to find anything on here, but all it would be used for is the car/s.

    Can anyone recommend a decent one, and one that will do foaming too..

    Cheers in advance.

    imo yeah if all you're doing is washing the car & maybe swilling the drive or patio down... any thing between £50 & £100 will be fine (K2 range are good enough for me & my old man) as we share it lol...

    I've snow foamed the car with it, which works fine, and I've done all the rear patio and block paved drive, alot quicker than my old Karcher, but I think that was on it's way out. I read alot of complaints about Karcher, and this one had good feedback and I'm very happy with it.
