been thinking of getting myself a pressure washer and also starting to use the snow foam. i've read previous posts on snow foaming and understand what i need but was wondering if anyone could recommend a decent pressure washer?

been looking at this: http://direct.tesco.com/q/R.210-7948.aspx

Shaun

Hi although I havent got one I understand Karchers are pretty good even if slightly expensive.

Go for a mid range Karcher, highly recommend one.

Thats mine there, I got it for £125 brand new delivered, however I've noticed there up to near £200 now or £150 for a refurbishment.

Would recommend a Nilfisk. Much much better than Karcher.
I use this one

Quite liking the hose reel on that one actually...

Its really handy, great for storing and stopping all those kinks etc

Go Karscher mate, they do a greet foaming attachment to get the soap on

Pressure washer is useless on car washing. It might help in removing heavy coat of mud, or accumulation of gunk on differentials, but that is about it. Itís not bad but we have to care about many things while washing car with power pressure washer otherwise it could be take off paint.

Had the Karcher one for ages and it never dissapoints, never any problems with it and you can pick up one at a decent price if you do your research, Halfords or B&Q always seem to be doing some deals on them.
The only problem I always have no matter whether I wash the car at home or in a car wash, always end up with streaks, well annoying. Really need to get the Polish on soon :/
