Extremely impressive but be carefull its very powerfull,
This review is from: Kärcher K2.32M & T50 Pressure Washer (discontinued by manufacturer) (DIY & Tools)
This may be one of the lower priced Karcher models but if one is not used to the powerfull 1400watt motor and 110bar pressure you can easily cause a lot of damage to your cars paintwork.
I read somebody elses review before desiding to buy this particular model and i am extremely impressed with its performance.
Naturally a brand new 1400watt motor has real power behind it but even i was surprised at just how powerfull it is in use and the power is increased significantly if your water pressure can deliver up to 10Litres per minute.
Now 10 Litres does not sound much but it is a fair increase over the standard 3-6 Litre capacity of most systems and it equals to over 2 Gallons of liquid which is more than most mains water supplies.
If used at 10 Litres or above the pressure increase due to the water rate is significant and that pressure can easily damage delicate surfaces.
Remember this Karcher model has a 1400Watt motor and 100Bar pressure which indicates serious cleaning capabilities if your water output can keep up.
My water supply is not as high as 10Litres per hour but a friend living in Cardiff has such a mains supply of water and it was he who showed me the true power of this Karcher on paintwork.
The water pressure really is too great for general car cleaning and is ideal for patio cleaning and areas where ingress of dirt has been allowed to accumulate for many years.
As with all Karcher models the tools provided are built to last many years and the rather brief instruction book is very easy to follow.
The jet from this washer if held too closely i am certain would damage car paintwork and could cause extensive damage to the cellulose on alloy wheels.
That's not to say you cannot use it to clean your car but you would have to hold the lance atleast two feet away and take extreme care in the process.
You may be frightened by my review thinking this washer is too powerfull for general car cleaning but as long as care is taken it will prove very effective at removing dirt from most surfaces.
This model also comes with the patio cleaner which is very good at it's intended purpose.
Just a word of warning if you buy this washer first try it on your patio or driveway and then you will see how effective and powerfull it really is.
If you must clean your car with it be carefull because i am sure there would be no redress from Karcher if you stripped your cars bodywork.
A really impressive and overlly powerfull pressure washer really designed for those heavier jobs not car cleaning.
