Max. Flow Temperature : 60 C
Motor Power : 1500 W
Hose Length : 5 Mts.
Auto stop : Yes
Weight : 6 Kg Applications
Washes your car squeaky clean, right from the wheels and doors to the most unreachable of areas
Cleans the tiles in the garden paths and driveways
Removes dirt that sticks to garage shutters, which is otherwise hard to clean


I got it from a bosh dealer for 5.6K. It is quite useful for people like me who have no other choice but to clean the car by ourselves.
That's a terrific price. Would the dealer ship to Mumbai? I'm interested in purchasing one at that price plus shipping...

I think the price is still a rip-off compared without outside India --- but don't be put off by the ineptitude of your demonstrators.
Thanks Arun and Thad

Idiots indeed, I can now understand why they were not able to release the pipe at the front. They did use pliers and a lot of force and it did damage the outlet.

This should have been part of their training so would blame bosch as well for that.

But good to know that I can now go and pick it up.

I got it from the dealer on Dr.Nanjappa Road,don't remember the name tho. But my friend got it from shop opposite to it sporting a Bosh signboard for a much lesser price. Try both and bargain.

Happy cleaning and safe motoring!

If you use the right nozzle, it wont remove the polish.... Don't know about other washers but Bosch Aquatak 100 Plus comes with multiple nozzles to suit your application... to wash a car you need minimum 3 nozzles...

If you are using the right shampoo (eg. Sonax Wash n Wax) you don't have to wax later...

This is a toy. Are you sure you want to buy this to wash a real car.

There are many makes in the market - mostly Chinese. They work Ok for the price. Bosch is good and has a dealer & service centres throughout the country incl Trivandrum. Karcher is available in Cochin and is expensive but with 3 switchable pressure options even in their base machine.

Bosch dealers give discounts but Cochin discounts are far better than Trivandrum.

Go for a pressure washer - any make (depending on your budget, buy the best) and you wont regret it.

Thank you for sending me the dealer info. the cost you mentioned is little high that the other team bhpians quoted. its 7k only for aquatek100. i think these dealers are charging more. I also found the wood pecker dealer in trivandrum, that dealer is also in the same location, i gave him a call for enquiry he gave me a price of 7K for the car washer.
this is the link demo link for woodpecker in you tube.

You may also try 'Masterclean', I bought one for 6.5K almost 3 years back. Very useful in cleaning the wheel-well of the car. I use it mainly to clean my bathroom floor, though
The dealer has set up a shop on Trivandrum byepass road at Kulathoor.

I have also seen it while passing through the bypass road. since you have been using it for 3 years can you give us a feed back regarding the quality and reliability of the product. is the pressure of the product sufficient for washing the dirt from the car. what i meant is the % of cleaning.
thanks
