Puzzi v George

Will be buying a new wet-vac soon, and wondered if the Karcher Puzzi 100 is worth the extra money (lots of extra £££ ) compared to the well-respected George.

Don't get a puzzi 100 get the puzzi 8/1c this model is designed for automotive use it has more suction and less spray. You don't need to soak the seats. Plus it's much cheaper!!

Look here, I use these guys for everything very cheap. http://www.chemtec.co.uk/acatalog/Puzzi-81-C.html

Bigger tank etc also. It's perfect!!


Goodluck

The George is perfect imo and the obvious choice over another 140quid.

I always see people moaning about the tank size, I can manage to wet vac a full car without emptying and even if I do have to empty it, it takes 2 minutes.. are people that lazy??

+1 for the George.

My George is knackered (it is about 12 years old I reckon!) and only the extractor works; but it is perfect for me because I prefer to hand shampoo seats and carpets anyhow. Anything more powerful and I reckon you'd suck the cloth from the seats!

George is ok but pretty limited really, considered a steam vac instead?

That's what I have gone for

Yes, the Puzzi 8/1c has much more suction but the same spray. Puzzi 8/1c also has a smaller tank than the puzzi 100.

Thanks for the link .

If its only for home use, why not just get a cheapo wet vac (i have the wickes own brand one, very powerful wet suction) and a pump sprayer and a fabric brush ?

Much cheaper setup and i actually get better cleaning results doing the spray and agitate by hand rather than using the machines built in sprayer (i used to have a puzzi 200 till the pump failed)
