    I've just bought this. Bought it for Headstone/Memorial restoration its got a very good gun with 4 different easily changeable heads for 2 different fan sprays, pencil type spray and low pressure 5.5hp petrol engine 3000psi pump.

    makes mince meat out of 25 year old grime.

    i was looking for diesel power steam cleaner but the are just stoopid money, so i settled for this and you could rig it up to hot water feed if u feel the need

    absolute bargain at less than £370 1/2 price well 2/3 of the original price when u do your homework and it has 3 year warranty

    I was only looking for a general purpose ,home use machine,that looks like a very good machine but a bit over the top for what I want ,thanks anyway

    ive gone thru like 6 of those crappy electric ones in past 2 to 3 years at like £120 each aim for one with an engine

    if it gets knocked over while switched on the electric motor locks up and breaks, if you use it too long without stopping they over heat and burn out and they are all weak pressure

    I have had a karcher one for the last 6 years and still going strong. Cost about £120 :wink:

    'Cheapo - cheapy cheap one' here... :lol:

    Had it for 15 years or more - still going strong - except that when you cut the wash it reduces power on the water jet until you remove the end part of the lance and shake the water out - then when you press the trigger again all is good :shock: Never figured out what that was... but not too much hassle when you know the solution :lol:

    Got a loan of a mates petrol powered one... V. powerful... but VERY NOISY!!! :mrgreen:
