Thanks
go for it Darren - MUCH better in EVERY way

I just can't see the point in buying a PW that only lasts a year (no names mentioned) when you can buy one that will probably out last me.

agreed - and when you see what a REAL 10L/min does in terms of cleaning you will never look back.

Just went out to foam and rinse the cars, and decided to give them a good rinse down first. The dirt was just running off the paint from the first rinse, with no foam or detergents etc. NEVER saw the cars clean up so well with just water. 10L/min makes a huge difference.

Something I've posted here once or twice before - http://www.diyfaq.org.uk/electrical/...washer_faq.htm
Makes the case for higher flow rate being more important than peak pressure.
As I've said elsewhere here before too, anyone not able to meet the Kranzle price point, should seriously consider only a slight step down in performance from the Makita HW131 or 130 for those on a stricter budget.

I don't like you at all. My Bank acc is somewhat lighter now. K1150T ordered

I have got the brass attachment on order from AB. Jobs a good'un and I can help wash my dads black/brown WRX (was WR Blue) and my T-Sport.

Am I correct in thinking that these Kranzle p/w's do not have an auto-stop feature? Do you need to take any extra precautions when using such a p/w?

It arrived this morning at 10:15 by City Link. The driver was a right laugh. Nice guy.

I suppose you want to see the picture of it






I can see why they cost so much. Its heavy and solid. Non of this flimsy Plastic and light weightiness.
