Kranzle K9 is what I have, it was out yest.
Both cars, all the front windows, gutters, facia and front door and step, then blew the flakey paint off the garage door for repainting.
Best money I ever spent (on non fishing gear).

Nilfisk electric pressure washers are supposed to be decent pressure washers,

You could also hire a petrol pressure washer you will have more cleaning power in a petrol pressure washer.

I went for the nilfisk a couple of years ago and it’s been great, loads of attachments readily available such as patio cleaning attachment, snow foam bottle drain cleaners and angled Lance!
Purchased from machine mart

+1 for Kranzle, not the cheapest to buy but top quality that will last a very long time.

It wouldn’t surprise me, have a shop around though machine mart isn’t always the cheapest. Like I say it was ease of getting hold of the accessories which attracted me!

Try North West Power Washers for a great price on a Nilfisk.

Ask yourself how long would you want it to run for, most of the entry level units including Nilfisk which I have, should only be run for about 15-20 mins before giving then a rest or they can F U C K up. if you have a large patio that could take an hour or more to clean be prepared to pay more for a better unit or alternatively do it in stages.

It would do, far superior to the electric domestic models.

I am not trying to be smart but that wolf pressure washer is probably cheaply made in china at that price

I hope it lasts for you but it might not hold up in the long run

But then for £219 you can not go to far wrong :thumbs:

You might be better off hiring a petrol pressure washer and see what you think of it,

The engines on the petrol pressure washer can be very loud when using them but they do have more cleaning power

I think car detailers use the kranzle pressure washers there not cheap though,

If you are thinking of buying a electric pressure washer you can not go to far wrong with a

Nilfisk electric pressure washer .

I agree be very wary of cheap Chinese engines, they are made from chocolate! If you do need to repair they will crumble in your hands, monkey metal mainly.

The Kranzle will suck water from a rain barrel.
If taking water from the mains there is a litre per min. that must be available or you will damage the machine.
Mine requires 9litres and the mains provides more than that from an outside 1/2" tap.

Bought from a Kranzle distributor, saved me ££s, delivered to my door with full guarantee. PM me if you want the info.

Agreed made of chocolate, I once removed a spark plug from a cheap nearly new petrol generator from China the threads in the head came out with it, the same happened with another 2 bolts holding the barrel. Very poor build quality!

That's true.... but unfortunately if something "good" costs 500 quid and the china made version is 150 quid you got to ask why.
Bit of shiny paint is the cheapest part....what lies beneath is what matters

Thought as much! The K10 is just a bit more than I really wanted to spend so when I heard K9 I was hopeful I was going to save a few quid :laughs: :thumbs: :hissy:
