Excellent, light weight, portable and cheap pressure washer. Better than my karcher
30 January 2019
I was on my second Karcher. The first broke and I threw it away, the second one also broke - this time the on/off switch and despite several repairs, it kept breaking, so I gave that away and got this Bosch instead. I'm so glad I did.
For a start, it is half the physical size of my old Karcher. But more importantly, it is also less than half the weight. The Karcher was really heavy and you had to wheel it around. It was too heavy to carry any distance. But this can be picked up and carried in one hand whilst using the lance in the other. The disadvantage of this weight saving is that if it is on the floor and you pull on the lance, you can pull it over - it has no weight to stop it from moving or falling over, but that is a minor gripe and it's lightness is actually an advantage in my opinion.
Power-wise, it is perfectly adequate for cleaning my cars and the drive. I don't know how the power compares to my old karcher as I can't remember what that did, but it is nice and powerful. The lead is the same length as the Karcher's lead was. Probably a bit short, I need an extension lead to reach the end of my drive, but then too long a lead would present storage issues.
Talking about storage, because it is so small and all the attachments clip to it, storage is a doddle. It sits nicely on a shelf in the garage, or would fit under the stairs if you don't have a garage.
It comes with 2 spray heads and a snow-foam attachment - which is everything I need!
I am very pleased with it. I just wish that someone would invent a hosepipe that had a built in mains cable running next to it so that you only needed one connection to your pressure washer, not two! I wonder if I can get a slot on Dragens Den?
