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.

Good value for money,just found the high pressure hose a bit too short for getting all the way round the car.

Excellent product, was not sure if i should have brought the more expensive one but this pressure washer is very good. I have used it to clear my block drive and has brought it up like new.

I thought this lower power model would have what it needed to move the worst of my dirt, without tearing things apart.
on reflection, i rather wish i had invested in the slightly higher power model, but this works ok, and doesn't tear my patio apart, so i'm pretty pleased.

If like me you read reviews , let me tell you don't hesitate to buy this product ! It's awesome , the high pressure lance is very powerfull , in fact too much power for delicate jobs , but the other lance is great as it produces more spread and is great for general washing

Very good value for money. Considering its small size it's very effective.

I had intended to replace my much bigger and higher pressure karcher pw with a more exotic device. But a friend, who does car detailing as a sideline, suggested this item was competent enough for car washing and a factor of roughly 1/15 the cost as my intended purchase. This only has to last a year and it will pay for itself. So far, i am impressed; it does all i need of a pw for car cleaning and without having the potential to strip paint because of a very high pressure.
cannot recommend highly enough if you only need a car cleaning pw that is light and easy to drag around.

Shame that neither of the two attachments that came with it were not adjustable. I had to buy that separately, which now makes the other redundant!!!!!!!! Otherwise it does exactly what is says on the tin, and i hope to spend many happy years with it.

I have given this machine some quite heavy use and it has performed well. It has, so far, been very reliable unlike my previous two machines which burnt out (gearbox/pump failure). I am very happy with this purchase.

Good price, lightweight and so far a good performance.We are happy with this product.

Very fast delivery 2 days, have only used a couple of times, but very impressed with the jet washer, great value for money.
Jim paterson | 04 June 2013
Although a small washer it has done so far what has been asked of it, some slab and decking cleaning. My ratings are based on what little i have done so far.
with regard to service from tooled up, i have shopped there before and am sure i will again.
Frindon | 23 May 2013
It cleans the car with a little help. That's all I wanted from it.
B.Mcmurdie | 21 May 2013
Very quick delivery from tooled-up.I bought this washer as Karcher has a good name. I have used it on various jobs,cleaning brickwork,paving slabs,and the car,it is very good for cleaning alloy wheels and so, for the money I paid,so far, I am very happy with my purchase.

Works very well, not managed to sort out the cleaning liquid side of it yet but overall performance is excellent.
Terence ogden | 20 May 2013
This pressure washer is a well known make, the price I paid was the best I could find for what I wanted so excellent value,
I have purchased items from you in the past always value for money.
Michael | 20 May 2013
I bought the cheapest machine to clean up my patio and garden furniture. It has done superbly and has amazing power.... Maybe even too much as it has taken some of the surface of the wooden garden furniture! however, the power washer has brought it up beautifully and it is now a delight to see.
Overall an excellent machine, especially for the price and I am well satisfied.
