Is it a good and reliable product? Warranty is only 6 months.
I have this product. Bought it from Metro Cash and Carry in Blore for 9.5k.

The product is shown as out of stock on the above link and price displayed is 9.2k.

Do read my posts in the previous pages for more information.

I have a Skil pressure washer and I find that washing underbody surfaces and the wheel arches is difficult since there is no angled nozzle. Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem? Will Bosch accessories work with Skil?

Thanks.

I have a Kärcher K2 110, i got it for 7.5K, has 6 months warranty. Comes with 2 nozzles, the pressure is excellent at 100 bar, i use it every week to pressure wash my vehicles, I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a pressure washer.

Anybody know where we can buy accessories for this, i dont see many options available online.

Nope, you can just close the door on the power cord. The rubber beading around the door prevents damage.

By the way, do the pressure washers mentioned in the above posts contain water storage tanks? Or do they have to be connected to a tap?

^^ Thanks for the reply. I am actually planning on buying this. How is your experience after it using for a month?

BTW, to answer your question, most pressure washers available in the market need a running water supply.

Most of the accessories are available on ebay. In or keepitclean.in guess second is the Karcher store itself.

The product was available for Rs 5118. Now it is out of stock.

I expect such deals to come across many sites this month.


I was not impressed with the 6-month warranty on that product. Considering your experience with the motor, I think it was a good thing that I avoided.

My personal preference is a steam-cleaner such as Karcher SC 1.020, though it is not a product meant for cleaning cars.
This is available for around 8-11K online with 1 year warranty.

After an year and half of my Karcher K 3500 I'm very happy with the purchase. Initially I felt spending 14k was not justified for a pressure washer. I did not have a car when I got this. Was primarily used for my three motorcycles and the scoot.

Besides the ease of washing several vehicles in no time at all with minimal water usage.

There are several benefits to invest in a pressure washer for those living in a tenement / bungalow. The pressure washer saves a substantial amount of water for washing the outdoor areas, terraces, windows.

The ease of removing algae from surfaces takes no effort with the dirtblaster lance.

Cleaning the baffle filter of the kitchen exhaust hood is now effortless.

The various lance is used for almost all jobs.

The dirtblaster is too powerful to be used on any surface except tiles and brick surfacing. It peels the paint off any painted surface.

The K 3500/3550 motor runs well for long intervals of usage. The smaller units are not suitable enough for extensive work outside the house.

^. Nice.. I am also looking for the same model solely since its base on Induction motor. Prices have increased a lot. Now it retails for ~19k. Even with discounts I think the best I can get is for ~17k.

Have you faced any issues with the washer. How is the pressure. I am mostly looking for driveway cleaning & removing dirt from walls since I get a lot of duct & grime . Washing cars is secondary for me.

You will get this for Rs. 16000 (effectively) from PayTM. Just remember that the cashback is not given back to you; it is credited to your PayTM account. So you need to buy stuff with that cashback amount.

PAYTM is highly inflated price & the max cashback is only Rs 5k. Lowest I got is from ShopClues but then no offers yet.

Will be keeping an eye on the discounts for ShopClues & eBay as well since the model is finalized..

Users/Owners of pressure washers...

I would like to know (approximate) how many bucket loads of water is needed to wash a hatch, normal wash, minor wheel well sprays (no slush/muck/grime). Wash includes dustoff-soapup-rinseoff cycle.

I am planning to get one and want to know the comsumption pattern.
