If it's being used on a daily basis, I'd hazard a guess it's for business use? If so, you really should opt for a commercial machine as domestic machines are not covered for business use obviously, so that rules our Karcher K series or Nilfisk models up to the P150 and so on! Then you need to factor in how long it's in use for on a daily basis, my Karcher HD5/11P is a commercial unit, but only rated for use up to an hour a day! Next question is it for mobile or static use?

Yes mobile use. For most of my jobs I can use people's taps but for the odd few I use my water tank. The K7 takes the water out the same it would from an outside tap whereas the Karcher would struggle as it's not built for it.

Are the Karchers even serviceable? At least with the Kranzle you can have it repaired/serviced if anything goes wrong. I suspect you've just been unlucky with a faulty one, and that when fixed it'll probably run flawlessly for decades to come if serviced properly.
