@ Build Quality, Ease of use @
I bought this pressure washer last year and i am thoroughly happy with it apart from the water connector at the front, which has disgraceful build quality and has on so many occasions forced me to use the hosepipe instead. The add ons, the cables and other connectors are perfect, build quality is superb since they are all robust and i have never had anything break down but the connector to the water out nozzle no longer screws back on thanks to the connectors internal ridges which make it screw on. After just a few weeks of disconnecting and reconnecting the pipe the plastic ridges inside had worn down and will no longer slide back onto the ridges on the main unit so now every time water is sent through the pipe the connector blows apart and water comes gushing out everywhere.
This is however, a very easy to use pressure washer because when you first put it together you are given a simple multi lingual manual and lots of diagrams of what goes where, and even when you've built it you just turn the on switch and start spraying. Also as far as pressure washers go this is not too loud, i have had ones that scream the place down with noise but this isn't that bad.
@ Cleaning Ability @
When using this you just hold down a button on the handle and spray, there are bits to fiddle around with you just get a stream of water into whatever attachment you are using. This isn't one of the more powerful washers that Karcher makes so it wont strip the paintwork off your car it just gives a constant steady stream of water without cutting out or giving short uncontrolled bursts of water.
On driveways the T50 attachment works well and spins at high speed to remove dirt from within small gaps or grooves, it can leave a small mark in the middle of the area which you are cleaning but you can just go over this again, and it takes about 4 seconds to fully clear the dirt from the patch you are cleaning. On paintwork like doors and cars though its a simple close up last about 1ft away and if you slowly drag it down the paint work you rarely need to go back to get patches you missed.
@ Overall @
This is a fantastic pressure washer but don't make the same mistake i did, leave the connector on and don't remove the pipe, that is the only downside to this because it has a great cleaning ability and its reasonably priced.
Summary: A great pressure washer but i wish my connector wasnt broken
