Kranzle Total Stop Vs Non Total Stop?

Hi all,

Birthdays round the corner and I want to get myself a new pressure washer as my my Karcher K7 Compact appears to be dying after 2 years of use.

I am looking at either the Kranzle K7/122 or the Kranzle K10/122. Home use only, almost exclusively for washing mine and the brothers 3 cars every couple of weeks.

I know the LPM difference of the K7 and 10 , still undecided on which to get to be honest.... Not sure that the extra 3 LPM is going to make a bit of difference when cleaning cars?

My main question is about the auto stop/total stop feature. Is there any point in this considering I can just turn the unit off between each wash stage that requires the pressure? Or is it a MUST HAVE feature?

I'm looking at around £530 Inc VAT for the K10/122TS.

Tom

I recently bought a K7/122 (without Total Stop), just for home use. The main reason I wanted it is that I live close to neighbours and would feel a bit self conscious using a louder machine. The K7 is supremely quiet; the main noise is water coming out of the jet.

I find the K7 plenty powerful enough and so do not believe I am missing the extra 3l/min of the K10 (which is noisier as the pump runs faster).

Total Stop is definitely not a must have for me but if its only £50 or something more I would definitely get it.

Thanks for the info mate.

I have just pulled the trigger on a Kranzle K10/122 with Total Stop.

Excited!!!!

My only reference point is a Nilfisk C110 and certainly the Kranzle K7 is much quieter. It just sort of ticks over calmly whereas the Nilfisk makes a frantic screach under load.

The extra flow makes a lot of difference to cleaning power. I have a kranzle k7 and have recently upgraded to a k1152 and the difference is very noticeable.

How noticeable is the difference in noise between the two machines?
