    I'm in the market for a new pressure washer.

    My last one just died after 5 years :

    Karcher HD803BS

    http://www.karcher.co.uk/uk/Products/Professional/Highpressure_cleaners/Cold_water_highpressure_cleaners/With_combustion_engine/11871210.htm

    It had never been serviced, so I'm amazed it lasted that long - but it really was a good pressure washer (I got it for £600), all the jobs I had (driveways, patios etc) it tore through them.


    So, I was going to get another one (and look after it more this time!) but had a good look around and there's a few in my price range that look decent enough to me and with a little bit more power, but do I need the extra power? I can't decide.

    Hyundai HYW3600GB

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Hyundai-HYW3600GB-Petrol-Pressure-Washer-Clearance-sale-Save-s-/190863485886?pt=UK_Home_Garden_PowerTools_SM&hash=item2c7059abbe < This ones on special as it's end of line.

    Evopower EPW275-14AR

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Evopower-EPW275-14AR-Petrol-Pressure-Washer-/190843004008?pt=UK_Home_Garden_PowerTools_SM&hash=item2c6f212468

    First link that washer even being sold as new has no warranty and on the link on fleebay listing says 30 day warranty. Myself I would not touch it with a barge pole as should sound alarm bells ringing disregarding whatever feeble reasons why they said.

    Yeah I did wonder that, was going to take a chance but your probs right on that one :)

    So that means between the

    Karcher HD803BS, which I had before or the Evopower (looks like it comes with a 2 year guarantee)

    Or any other recommendations?

    Don't really want to go above £800...
