pressure washers

well, i think my pressure washer is finally dying on me will post a video up at some point for verification, so, since its been a while, what should i look for? my Wickes one was £200, but i reckon a cheaper Karcher should do just the same sort of job?

recommendations? want to spend say, £100 - £120

I was looking at a C120 as it happens, are they Lavor fittings? If so, I could carry on using the lance I already have?

pressure washers

I'd go for another Karcher - Wickes / B&Q and a few places have some of them on offer presently...

Depending on how often you use it, I'd go for the best you can on your budget.

Should get the K2 in budget easily and if you can stretch it a little, the K4.

A few options from Halfords - the K2 is £99, the K4 is £139

Nilfisk over Karcher in that price bracket, 3 K2's (each lasted 12 -18 months, then split the pump housing) my C110 still going strong after 3 years - only problems I have had has been self inflicted (one way valve on feed pipe)

Have to admit, after my Wickes one that's lasted around 8-9 years, I want something that should last

Hmm, that's interesting. Will beat in mind if / when new one required...
