Jet Wash

Just about to purchase one - any experiences out there?

Undecided about a Stihl 118 or a Karcher 6 series with some attachments - both around 200 mark - any thoughts?

Not impressed with the short life of the karcher I bought a year or two back .

The guy at the repair shop said they were cheap and nasty and trading on a name , bit like black and decker

My mate has a Kranzle, I think thats how its spelled , its a really solid bit of kit and works very hard for its living but probably cost well over 200

Don't be fooled by pressure claims - flow rate is far more important.

Have a look in makro and also machine mart - their own stuff is pretty good - at the back of some stores they have returned bargains - some of it has been used hard and is knackered but some has never even been plugged in!!!

personally I prefer petrol ones - I have a Lavor that was only about 140 but is very powerful and will run from an oil drum or similar if no mains water.

Dads got a Alto made by a company called Kew. Managed to smash a glass shower door that was in the garden waiting for the tip. Can't remember why I was using the Jetwash on it.
Had it years with out it failing once.

Jet wash purchased

Collected a Stihl 128 Plus today from the local dealer in Bristol. Added the Patio cleaning tool too - very impressed, it munched the moss and dirt on the patio, it was black and now shinning original colour.

Can't speak highly enough of George Carr in Bristol - made the process very easy and price matched the most competitive price I had found else where.
