    confused pressure washer recommendation

    what pressure washer has everyone got,am lookin to get a decent new one and currently lookin at the karcher K3.86

    Karcher K386 Car Pressure Washer with wheels and on-board accessory storage, the K386 Pressure Washer is easy to maneuvre and store. Includes vario lance, dirt blaster lance and 6m high-pressure hose
    • 5 metre mains supply cable
    • Integral detergent tank enables the user to easily apply pressure washer detergent during use.
    • With the included dirtblaster lance this machine can clean larger areas more quickly than a traditional narrow, high impact pressure washer.
    • A 6 metre hose gives the user plenty of room to use the pressure washer effectively
    • Ideal for a large range of cleaning tasks - car washing, driveways, small patio areas garden furniture or bicycles.
    thats the write up about it on halfords page.not wantin to go spendin alot of money on somethin a wont be happy with in the end.this is £179.99

    prefer hand washin it though,get a much better look once its done,a can spend 8 hours on cleanin ma car easy,relaxin too when ye git peace and quiet to do it.sayin that theres times where a cant be bothered or dont have the time,so a use the machnes too,pound for 3 mins stick a 5er in 15 mins cars done,but nowhere near as good as a proper hand wash.

    It's got an alloy pump which last a lot longer that the plastic pumps found in most Karcher ones.

    It also comes with a lance with an adjustable head fro doing under wheel arches etc..
