Pressure washer

I need a pressure washer guys. Not for the bike mainly for cleaning the block paved drive & a few other bits and pieces. Rather get something that I can rely on for a few years. Electric, any recommendations?

I use Nilfisk now, had a c130 for years and never skipped a beat, really sturdy construction.

All the karchers I have ever owned have broken.

Got 2 Kärchers (the bloody expensive ones) and they constantly have issues. Best advised to stay away from Kärcher, in my opinion.

Another Karcher user here, but I have to admit they don't impress me. The soap dispenser on mine was broken from new. I ended up stripping it to find the hose wasn't connected. Their quality control seems to be a bit hit and miss.

Had the same issue on mine. The small plastic hose was almost connected, but not quite.
As long as we are complaining, i can also confirm that aftersales care (at least here in Spain), is a load of s**t.

I also don’t recommend Karcher. I got mine in 2000. I had the same issue with the soap dispenser and mine started leaking immediately after the warranty expired.
