I have been using this Karcher for a few months now for various things including washing the car, washing bikes, cleaning the decking and cleaning the drive and it has been great for all of these things.
The different attachments make it really easy to switch between jobs quickly simply by pushing and twisting to detach and attach different parts, making it more effecient. The patio and decking cleaner is a lot better than I originally thought it would be, it made cleaning the decking a quick and easy job, and the best part was that it means dirty splash back doesn't cling to the house and patio doors - which causes another cleaning job. The high pressure attachment is so powerful I couldn't believe it, it gets rid of any stains etc on driveways and paving slabs that have built up over the years in a second. The other useful attachment is the variable pressure attachment which is great for washing the car. I use it on max power for the bottom of the car and in the wheel arches where the most dirt builds up and on a lower pressure for higher up the car. Allows the car to be cleaned quickly and much better than a slow hose or even worse the watering can or bucket to rinse off the car!
The unit itself is really easy to use. All you have to do is attach your garden Hose from the tap to the back of the pressure washer and attach the Karcher hose for the attachments to the front. Then plug in the cable to a power socket, turn on the tap and switch on then unit, pretty simple really. The unit can be quite noisy when in use so if doing big jobs such as cleaning the driveway I suppose it's best to do it when your neighbours are out to avoid annoying them, however this wasn't a major problem. My one main criticism of this Karcher is the length of the Karcher hose from the unit to the gun is not that long, meaning when you are doing something where you need to move around a lot, you have to stop to pick up the Karcher and bring it with you, and I get a little fed up sometimes when trying to wash the car, I spend a lot of the time going to fetch the unit so I can clean further around the car, this constant moving can also cause the power cable, Karcher hose and garden Hose to get in a bit of a twist sometimes.
Criticism aside, this is a brilliant pressure washer that I really recommend, makes light work of big jobs and saves having to put a lot of elbow grease into jobs that could otherwise takes hours.
