Well I do all my repair myself. I have tools to work from a m800 to truck.

1. Most wrench and tool set are Eastman. I know German tools are best in the world. BUt i must say Eastman makes the best tools in India.
Beware, taparia has gone bad from worst.

2. Hydraulic Jack, one locally made Classic, other a Chinese made 2 ton small.

3. Skill and Bosch made drill

4. Voltcraft meters. Bridgestone gifted air pressure meter.

5. Some local made special tools to work on engine, suspension.

6. Made to order Jack stand.

7. Local made air compressor but has a texmo motor.

What i like to acquire. maybe next year when i am little free from household thingy.
1. A good powerwash motor.

2. MIG/TIG welder

3. Laser cutter

4. Pneumatic set that goes with any air compressor.

5. Two/Four post lift.

Some recent work, suspension overhaul on my 11 years old m800.

What an amazing collection Sir!!! Someday I wish to service my car just like I do my motorcycle all by myself.

For the above requirement, if you're looking to wash the car, then why not consider Bosch power wash - Bosch - Garden Tools. Are you planning to build one by yourself?

Bosch is really trusted brand but bit expensive, how about a Black & Decker? I've bought a B&D car washer for just 4.9K, if its for your personal use rather than industrial usage then you can opt for the base model which I bought. Its worth to pay for that money as the monsoon season ask for such a device and it's consuming very less water compared to our bucket/tap wash. Very useful to clean your car porch to remove some very tough stains of oil drops/tire marks or even fungal attacks. Its like shaving off the surface as the pressure of the water is true 100bars.

That's a fantastic piece of information @Sajjt. Really appreciate. Are these guys Kadavil stores authorized B&D dealers? What else do they have?

Will they help to get most parts available listed on their website?

Actually, your post is an eye-opener to me. Never knew B&D's presence in India. Yes, I do have one of their product 18V chordless wood driller & that's an amazing product. Its literally abused & for over 6 years now & still going strong.

Nope, they are just a tools & equipments store with less stock of branded items.

B&D is a good brand even I too have a drill, corded, used for almost 3 years for my DIY, but once I handed over to my carpenter as a standby he made it useless in a month. For rigorous usage, these guys are going for Boch or Dewalt.

B&D for this price is a good deal.
Can it be used for cleaning the exterior walls of buildings?
I have seen painters using bigger versions of high pressure washers for removing the fungii scales before painting.
