Below is an explanation of the two main types of pressure washer. Whilst bar pressure is important the overiding factor in cleaning power is the water flow rate. More water = better cleaning.Home & Garden (sometimes referred to as domestic, DIY or consumer).Lightweight, easily portable and designed for regular use in a domestic environment, these machines range in power to suit the size of your cleaning task. Models featuring ‘water cooled motor’ technology offer greater performance, and top of the range machines are often fully loaded with accessories. Xpert or Professional (sometimes referred to as commercial or industrial)Heavy duty, robust and designed for maximum durability, Xpert or Professional machines have higher pressure and flow ratings, enabling you to clean with far greater speed and efficiency. These machines are not readily available on the high street or in DIY superstores and often feature upgraded components throughoutJargon Buster:• Bar or PSI: Bar is the most common measure of pressure. PSI = bar x 14.5.• Bar (max): This is the pressure achieved when the machine is first turned on• Bar (rated) pressure: This is the operating water pressure of the machine.• Motor size (kW): Motor size indicates power providing the machine runs efficiently. • Flow Rate (l/h): Higher flow rates enable you to clean large areas or objects fasterDid You Know:Pressure Washers use up to 80% less water than garden hosepipes.Pressure Washers are not subject to hosepipe bans if used for safety reasons, or if a suction hose is used to pull water from a harvested source. i.e. not the water mains. They are also not subject to a ban if used for commercial reasons, for example to maintain cleanliness, hygiene or company image.Important things to remember when using your pressure washer:• Always use an RCD when using electrical products in connection with water.• Never use a non-return valve at the pressure washer connection to a hose pipe.• Never drive over or lay items on high pressure hoses to avoid damage.• Your water supply hose should be a min of several meters long and unwound from its reel.• If you are using an extension lead, check that it is rated at min of 13 amps and fully unwound from its reel.

Well after much deliberation i decided to go for the less expensive and smaller of the hot water pressure washers by karcher. I am completely happy with the choice i made. It works very well, better than i expected. I no longer have to use a sponge when washing the car/vans i just set the washer up with detergent and away i go. It really is very good. No steam function, but i new this when i bought it and it's something i would probably only use very occasionally anyway. I bought the one with the real, and you can put the thing away in seconds. Overall i am impressed with this washer and would recommend to a friend.

Great performance from the machine. It is portable, although no light weight! The upright form factor helps with finding somewhere to store it at the back of the garage. It works well with karcher cleaning chemicals, delivered via the suction hose. It arrived with a faulty lance, but that was promptly replaced, without quibble, by karcher. Fingers crossed that no other issues emerge.
