Dirt, be afraid, be very afraid :armsup

So far have only done one job with it, and what would usually take about 3-4 hrs took about 45mins 8)
I was going to get a repco cheapy honda copy one, but then this came along at wholesale price, and for once in my life I ponied up the dough for quality :mrgreen: ... It better pay off :***

The best thing that I have used is a standard oscilating sprinkler bolted to a peice of wood to stop it from falling over.
Just place it under your car and move it once or twice to get it all, also works on the mud.

You can have a :beer :beer whilst it does the work.

Not too good down here with the water restrictions :cry:

I haven't been able to legally wash my car since I bought it :roll:
So I gotta go pester my friends who have recylcled water and muddy up their driveways :armsup

Water restrictions are a thing that we have to get used too - they will be there for some time yet.

I have just installed a 9000 litre rain tank for washing the cars and boat - it works like a gem

Oz,

What pressure does it run at and may we be so rude to ask of the price?

2500psi (I think, or maybe 2700, one of the two), 9.5L/min, and just a tad under $1200

I'm thinking of getting a 44gal drum and putting it on a few bricks. 160 odd litres will last nearly 20 mins, just enough to do my car if I hurry... and then technically i'm using a bucket.. just a bloody big one :lol:

:o

Bit pricey for me ... might jsut stick with the 1450psi one for $120. Then again, might just take it to an auto wash for $2 a hit!

Damn consumerist society!

Yeah it aint the kinda toy you buy for just washing the car :mrgreen: I use it for work ;) Gutters, drive-ways and paving 8) . Just a bonus that I get to clean my muddy car with it :armsup

Repco have a cheap (about $700 IIRC) copy of these that I was going to buy, looks the same and has the same specs, with some no-name pump and chinese honda copy motor. But this came along at a good price.

Ring your local council and ask for another recycle or green bin - they will deliver it to your door for no charge.

Drill a hole in it and insert a garden hose fitting in the hole, presto, you have a water container that you can wheel around.

Most pressure washers do not need to have a head off water to operate, they only need to be primbed and no air in the line to operate.

You must have a generous council or pay huge rates. No free wheelie bins here!

Ring them and just ask?

Most councils do it!
