Pressure Washer
« on: 13 February 2018, 09:12 »
 Looking to get a new pressure washer. My Karcher K2 has given up the ghost. I didn't really want to get another Karcher  Any recommendations?

Nilfisk probably the best bet if you want to avoid Karcher.

My Karcher K4 is pretty solid.  The full control handle thing is a bit of a gimmick but otherwise it’s good and a water cooled system. 

Even better if you swap the twisty standard nylon hose for rubber and wire replacement hose which doesn’t kink.

I would highly recommend the K4 due to the metal water cooled pump as opposed to the plastic air cooled one in the K2.

Hi Rebecca

Thanks for this been looking for a hose for a while due to to twisty nylon that comes with the K2 I'm guessing the K2 and K4 are the same fitments. ..
