Karcher K 2.65M Deluxe
Advantages: Good power and attachable items!
Disadvantages: Can be awkward to move about.
There are many products which have come on the market in the gardening category in the last decade which to many peoples eyes can only be described as TOYS. I mean, you used to have to book a professional to come round to your house with such a device as a pressure washer, now they are readily available for purchase - and who wouldn't look at such a thing and think, spray someone! When it comes to pressure washers, 'Karcher' comes to mind for many, and for good reason. The 'K 2.65M Deluxe' is a fully functional weapon which will leave cars, walls, fences, drive-ways and paths in a state of shock as they are stripped of their grub, muck and dirt coating in a matter of seconds (per square meter of course).
The product is a range of tools and attachments which all work alongside the main body (which houses the motor and relevant power supply) to make cleaning outside a quicker, more effortless experience come rain or shine. The following are some of the attachments this product boasts:
- Soft brush - for scrubbing more delicate outside surfaces, like scratch prone stone.
- 'Universal' cleaning sponge - used to clean vehicles and other things requiring a sponge.
- Rotating wash brush with joint - this is for scrubbing dirt away from floors/walls which are more resilient.
- Wheel wash brush - for, yeah...
- Window and conservatory cleaning set - this comes complete with a variety of scrubbing and wiping tools.
There are more attachments which can be purchased separately - but the general trend amongst all these items is they each have a pipe inside which channels water from the motor pump out of the end where the brush/sponge/scrubber is. Buckets are now history, essentially.
The main housing of the motor and water pump apparatus works excellently with all the attachable items. However (despite its wheels) it can be quite awkward to move about, which is OK when doing cars and other 'small' items, but for a houses windows and wall lines it can be hard.
The motor within has a great responsive power surge to it. Your hands will jolt back when first switching the water on (which is of course done via the gun from which attachments are connected). The product has a maximum flow rate of 360 I/h though I'm guessing this level will deteriorate over time, though I haven't noticed any lessening in power.
A handle on the top of the main unit allows you to manoeuvre the thing about and the overall looks of the product seem to suit its use. Bright yellow plastic components all stuck together with water-tight seals . There are rubber tires and a holster for the main gun unit from which attachments are attached.
All in all this product does what it should and I have had no reliability issues with it what so ever. I can't complain and would soon go and buy another or have this one repaired if anything did go wrong.
