I think for the majority, a George is ideal... however if you are doing multiple vehicles or detailing/valeting the answer is a puzzi

needless to say I now have another puzzi 100!

There is a benefit.......

The Karcher Puzzi 100 may well have a larger fluid capacity, but the 8/1c is ideal for car interiors as it has much greater suction power to leave the interiors drier than the P100.
Saying that.....the P100 is the more versatile with it's larger fluid capacity and the attachments for cleaning household carpets .

I could never find any evidence they had more suction power, this was the main reason I looked into the 8/1c.... Karcher themselves said there was no difference!

my p100 certainly doesn't leave the seats wet though, they are touch damp generally that's all.

My George was excellent, great workhorse and never let me down.
I had a chance of a Puzzi 200 on a great deal a year ago and took the plunge and swapped over.

The puzzi 200 is a much better machine than the George. Certainly a lot more suction on the extracting process, probably thanks to the twin motor. Maybe a bit bulkier than the George but easier to fill and empty. I have also tried the Puzzi 100 and would agin say its a little better than the George.

Steve

PS: I do a lot of wet vaccing, at least 3+ vehicles a week.

Here you go.....

Karcher 8/1c...
Air Flow = L/S 61
Vacuum = mbar/kpa 230/23.0
http://www.trafalgarcleaningequipmen...-cleaner?pop=0


Karcher 100...
Air Flow = L/S 54
Vacuum = mbar/kpa 220/22.0
http://www.trafalgarcleaningequipmen...lstery-cleaner

And as for the Karcher 200....
It has the same 'air flow' and 'vacuum' as the '100'...but has a higher spray rate of 2.0l/min, along with a higher spray pressure of 2.0bar.

Maybe because the Dealer will make more profit selling you the Puzzi 100 .
