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?

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. :mad:
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.

don't agree on this, I have a Kärcher for years and it works perfectly fine

Maybe the diesel run ones work well.
But these latest 2 (from the 5 or so cable powered ones I’ve owned) have been the most unreliable.
Customer service has been appalling (and very expensive for shoddy, short lived work)

But of course we all have our opinions & I’m glad yours are working fine.
Personally, I don’t recommend them anymore and will not be fixing the 5700 once it breaks AGAIN.

I was just wondering if the link with poor quality/experiences with everyone’s Karchers was that they were electric ones
When I bought mine you could only get petrol driven ones ;-)

Have owned 2 Karchers (K5s) and had no problems BUT i know of many people who would not entertain them after have problems,

i also have a cheap petrol one (Homelite) which is working well after 10 years.
