That's one of the telltale signs of a quality PW. All Kränzle are that way, actual top end Kärchers still might (or use the cheaper Aluminium pump heads). Kärcher of old was a homemade, local solid brand. Kärcher now is cheap China mass production, with the cheap plastic pumpheads on all lower to midrange models, that are imho rubbish.

And that's why my Kränzle has a 15m Hose with a turnable drum.
Thank you that's very helpful: I suspect my Karcher is a reasonable unit as it's a very early model and very heavy (in my mind!)

I have a £400 budget (can stretch to £500 but would use a lot of banked good will from the Mrs which i have other plans for!) - would my budget buy a set up similar to yours?
