I did exactly this with mine. Only thing was that it filled up with water, so I had to drill holes in the top to let the water out.

I too bought mine from B&Q for £18. Can’t fault it at that price, although even on the lowest height setting it doesn’t clear my exhaust.

Same here too - bought it and used it once - too much faff.

But.. I then bought the Karcher Vario Power Jet adjustable angle nozzle and its really superb for wheel arches and underneath. You get full, adjustable, swivelable power through a stubby nozzle - I can really recommend it.

It takes virtually seconds to set up.
If you donít have a smooth drive itís a bit more difficult to move it, but it cleans well.
If you use it regular it becomes easier and easier as the dirt is not caked on.
I seldom use the foamer that comes with it, I normally only rinse.

Itís fantastic to clean under the sills as I never seem to get them clean with a stubby or angled lance and still get a mitt full of muck when I grab under the sill.
After the Karcher itís clean and safe to ďgrabĒ

Yes it is a fancy patio cleaner upside down, however because you can adjust the height itís effective for our whole fleet high for the 4x4 and lowest for the Lexus.
