WTK: A good electric power pressure washer

Hey tuners looking for some advice on an electric power washer to clean the car on wash day. Any local retailers/brands will be greatly appreciated.

that is a good price, this model normally sells for around $1500-1600
ramlagans has it for $1200

hadden prices for parts hot though,
I had to replace the pumphead housing on it after plenty usage
part cost $450, labour $210
the part online costs $29usd....

another thing to be careful with is not use their plastic rotary nozzle very close to ground
sand particles can flyback into it and damage it, their nozzle is a plastic tip spinning in a plastic housing.

the better rotary nozzles use a ceramic tip spinning in a ceramic housing.

My unit has had long hours on it and apart from pump housing and replacing nozzle with an ebay rotary nozzle
it working good still

I'd recommend Karcher too
https://www.kaercher.com/int/support/de ... country=tt

I have a K 4.450 about 2 years now, use it for the car, van, house, concrete, tiles. Works well and enough power.
The rotary tip it comes with is great for concrete but it will take off paint.
I bought the foam attachment for the car wash liquid.

Takes up very little space in storage.

Buy karcher, every good brand the only problem child in karcher is the K3.000 or follow me, it does leak after a few uses and after repairs no problem, I have a K2 going on 3 or 4 years now no problem, hadden is a good company everyone friendly there, no complaints from me, they help out a lot with stuff.
