    Halfords hp125 comes quite well recommended Rob. I have a Karcher that we've had in the house for over 10 years. It was stored in the damp shed for about 8 years unused. I took it out of the shed last year and set it up and it worked 1st time so the Karcher's do last long.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    just looked at the halfords one it looks a bit flimsy and i could do with the vario thing that the karcher comes with, argos got a couple then theres good old ebay i guess
    the bits and pieces to add on are expensive though so may have to look for a package bargain

    Agree with that, good consistant flow, and lots of accessories... and a complete shut off system, (doesnt keep running when your not gunning) as most cheaper ones do.

    hi jonesy
    i got the halfords one for 42 an extra fiver of coz the box was opened, it has the total shut of and stops when the triggers not pressed and it seems to do the job fine, also the karcher hose and lance will fit if need be which is bonus,
    its one of the common fittins and i can get the add on for the spray foam to so thats great
    thanks gary and all for the advice
