  • Which Pressure Washer?

    Hi Guys,

    I'm on the lookout for a pressure washer, as I'm getting sick of wasting water.

    I noticed that Supercheap have the Gerni 125.2 PDX on sale at a $200 discount of normal RRP.

    Are these an ok unit for the weekend warrior? I missed out on the Karcher outlet sale earlier in the year, otherwise would have got a Karcher K5 full control back then.

    Thoughts are welcomed.

    The ryobi unit is great.
    I don't pull out my 3200psi petrol unit anymore; this one is ample for all my current needs. 5 year warranty.

          Any of the 1500+ PSI Gernis or Kartchers are great for weekend work. Gerni has longer warranty and cheaper parts so that's why i went with it.

          I bought the Gerni Super 145 (2100PSI) and its great. I'm glad i got the bigger one as it makes doing things like driveways and patios a lot faster than the smaller units. But for car usage they are all great.

            Look at flow rate over psi

              +1 ^^

              Flow rate much more important, using an aldi pressure washer with a flow rate of 5.9L/min.

              Feels like im trying to rinse the car with a can squirter bottle sometimes!

                This RYOBI any good ?

                https://www.bunnings.com.au/ryobi-18...asher_p6210779

                Out Karcher at home, I think the motor inside is borked, doesn't build pressure, maybe a leak somewhere. Have thought about getting another washer, though not sure about RYOBI, always read Karcher or GERNI.

                Can you get RYOBI adapters for those snow foam lances? ZAS have it only listed for Karcher + Gerni adapters.

                  i have a homelite petrol washer from bunnings. for 300 bucks it runs like a champ although it does chew through the juice a litre just manages 2 cars but it runs 9.2 lpm so you never feel like you need more water.

                    Had the base model gerni 110.2 for just under a year and it died. They sent a replacement within 3 days and it's been going for at least 4 years.

                        I have a Karcher K2 something (not at home to check) but its about 1750 PSI. Plenty of power, i have had few before both gerni and karcher. There is not much difference between low end units. The key consideration is length of the hose. My current unit has 5m and i wish it had 6m or more. Don't even think that 3 or 4m is enough. If it breaks after 3-5 years i will just get new one on what ever special there is at that time.

                        Cheers

                          Most pros here use Karchers or AR's not specifically designed for commercial use because they are easily portable and not loud enough to wake people up on early morning jobs not to mention low cost and easy to replace free of cost at costco. Having to replace something every year or so free of charge doesn't seem bad to me at all.

                          Which low gpm electric PWs do you know of in the commercial market which are sold with a warrenty like costco provides?

                            Depends what you are going to be doing with it. For car cleaning you want to keep the gun pressure to about 1050-1100 psi. This will give you very good foam as well. Kranzler is very good but also very expensive. I have put a lot if effort into research (will post onto you tube) and the setup to get now is ryobi bottom end from bunnings, 10m 22/15 hose (from maxi pro in brisbane) , generic $17 ebay gun with m22 connection and 1/4 quick disconnect, ebay 30 degree SS 50cm wand with 1/4 end quick disconnect. This is toped up with size 3 40 degree Interchangeable nozzle (ebay pack of 5 but check for size 3). For foamer i use the best, mtm hydro pf22 with 1/4 quick disconnect. Remember for cars water flow rate is the king not pressure.

                            Reason for ryobi is semi standard connection ie m22/15. New karcher has odd click system, gerni seems to run m21 as standard m22 does slide out. Just check bunnings. Buy cheap ryobi, 4 year warranty and spend the extra 30 on 10m hose, 17 for gun, 18 for wand, 10 for nozzle pack. Pf22 is exe at 129 but its best out there.

                            Cheers
