Absolutely. 33 is sufficient for most car and bikes with daily urban usage and rain grime and dirt cleaning.

If you have a hardcore 4x4 with snorkels and heavy lift suspension then you. We'd at least 120 bar to clean.

I use 37-13 plus to clean my nexon

How is the noise level of the 37-13 under use? Does it come with a Drain cleaner attachment?

I use it on a 5A socket sometimes with an adapter, works fine. Since, you don't keep the machine on for more than 4-5 minutes at a time, the wires get time to cool down. Though not recommended, once in a while for short burst it's fine i guess.

Guys, can you suggest something good if budget is not a consideration. Want to use on larger SUV's and also office commercial pickups.

If you want a Robust machine then look at the Karcher K3 and K4 series pressure washer. They have a water-cooled motor and last long without troubles if they are taken care of.

Wow! That was fast. It's a good machine. Just take care that it is moved around with care without sudden impacts. Also verify that the water is flowing out of the gun when the trigger is pressed before turning on the motor. This will ensure that there is no air in the system and the motor will not run dry. This is for the main thing that you have to ensure every time you connect the pipes and stuff. Nothing conks off the motor faster than running it dry

My personal preference is Karcher and Bosch simply because they have their service centres every where. Easy to get parts and service when required.

You can get Karcher K2 for 7-8K and if you can stretch your budget then you can go for K3 premium which has a water cooled motor. I have used my K3 for 6hrs straight and the motor was not even warm during that usage. All Karcher products are made in Germany and only thing which is Indian is the power cable. Karcher does not send the unit with Indian power plug size so the original one is removed in India and fitted with the Indian power cable.

Sir, do let me know how the FJ6 performs. I am a bit apprehensive about it's ability to get the thick foam.

It is very average. I have purchased a dedicated foam lance and it is far better than the FJ6
