Most reliable pressure washer on the market

Having had problems with both the Karcher K4 and Kranzle K7 I wondered what the most reliable unit out there is in your opinion?

Surprised about the problem with Kranzle, you must have been unlucky. What was the problem?

I've had a couple of issues. When it's firing it's by far the best unit I've used. Just recently I've had a slight oil leak and my latest issue is the gauge going to 150 bar when I haven't even got the trigger down. Spoken to Kranzle but not sorted it yet. Just frustrating as I only bought it in December.

I have used the Karcher K5 for close on 10 years. From Snow-foaming, rinsing, cleaning house windows, patios and anything else that needs to be cleaned! When it finally dies, I will replace it with another Karcher without hesitation - a great piece of kit

Are the K5's suitable for use with a water tank at low pressure?
I've taken a few K4's back in the past.

Had my Karcher K5.700 for over 10 years now.. and it was a refurbed one . My bro in law just got a K4 and it had to be replaced within a day. I get a feeling they don't make them like they used to.

My next one will be a Kranzle for sure.

I have used mine around a mates house with a water-butt to feed the supply using a Karcher suction hose. Obviously zero pressure on that occasion and it coped well.

From what the other guys have said, perhaps the K4 has some problems. My K5 has been great so far and never let me down even with some very tough tasks around the house and garden as well as on the cars
