Bosch or Karcher ?

Afternoon all,

I am thinking of dipping my toe in to purchasing a pressure washer, out of the two brands named in the title above which would be the better, more reliable to choose. Seems to be some good deals online right now.

Only really after a budget model as would be used for snow foaming purposes mainly, absolutely nothing wrong with my ValetPro compression sprayer however after a years usage it's getting a little boring and a little annoying in having to keep the pressure up, yes, something I knew prior to buying but time for a change me thinks. Any tips as to what to look out for i.e flow rate and bar pressure would be handy as well.

Hopefully get the Mrs on side and sweet in being able to clean our patio given her love of a tidy garden as we hate the green coating the slabs get through the winter months.

Cheers

LW

I have a 2500W Vax, picked up in the Vax sale for approx. £80 a couple of yrs ago. Blows my old K2 out of the water in terms of power.

The K2 was a trusty little machine for the few years I had it though.

Homebase are selling K4 Full Control's for less than £100 (£75 members have bought them at recently) if you can locate one nearby, absolute bargain.

Can't comment on the Bosch models unfortunately.

I've currently got a K4. The machine is great with plenty of power but the hose is annoying. This is due to length and the lack of a swivel on the machine or gun. Fortunately these can be purchased further down the line.

I was a hosepipe user before I bought this but having a pressure washer is great!

If you're planning on doing a patio then you really want something at least the power of a K4. My K2 isn't really powerful enough unless you want to spend all day working at it.
