    Best keep an eye out on fleebay, gumtree etc as if lucky you can pickup a good condition high spec washer and save quite a bit than buying new.

    Belt drive pumps are geared down so say last longer as no heat or vibration is transferred to the pump directly from the engine. That means the pump runs cooler. is less likely to overheat and virbration is cut down to a minimum which all save wear on the pump apparently.

    Apparently they cut out engine shaft wear as well
    I've never had issues with any off my washers always think belt driven is maybe a bit overrated
    If I was using the machine all day everyday then I'd be going down that route my friend cleans shopping centres and car parks etc but he has some ridiculous v8 washer belt driven but like he said he uses his sometimes 10 hour a day not 10 hour a month lol
