    Looks as if it is a reasonable piece of kit, not sure about the price, or how long fifteen litres of water would last. You could always use a bigger container though.

    4.5 litres to a gallon so it would be roughly 3.5 gallons. It all depends on the rate the water gets sprayed out, but if you live in a block of flats, I can see how it would be useful.

    Just been checking flow rates for other pressure washers and they seem to be over 300 litres per hour, makes me think 15 litres ain't gonna last long. At 2.5 litres a minute I reckon it will last 7 mins before needing a refill.
    So on 2nd thoughts maybe not such a great buy, Especially at that price Halfords amongst others sell mains powered washers a lot cheaper.

    Default Pressure Washer 12 volt

    I am sure I have seen this on the forum somewhere, Laser Tools do a 12 volt pressure washer and I was thinking it might be just the job for cleaning my wheels. The pressure isn't fantastic at 8 bar which is about 120 psi but if it works it could be a handy little tool, just wondering if anyone has tried one? Part number is 4289
