Karcher K1 Pressure Washer, A Must Have, Value For Money Equipment
Fast paced life of today leaves one with more work and little time to attend to things around one. Cars and two-wheelers we own are casualties of this like many of the relations that we live everyday. So when we see cars and bikes with dust and grime all over them, there is little we can do but take a deep breath and say: soon will take you to the garage and get you cleaned up!
But like our bodies these vehicles need not be put to the hard task of waiting but need immediate attendance. And so now there is much more you can do to your loved machines than just say wait baby, soon! For there is a lot you can do in a jiffy and without much hassle and that to without wheeling your vehicle to the garage but just in the confines of your home.
For now you have your hands at the Karcher K1 Pressure Washer. Yes, you heard it right. Time has come to remove all that hard stuck dirt that dims the beauty of the vehicles that you take pride in driving around on. The pressure washer is a low-cost, low-maintenance gadget that can remove the worst of dirt from your vehicle.
When Karcher sent us their compact and light K1 Horizontal pressure washer for a review, there was little optimism in us on how good the results would be. We were skeptical of the “quality of job to be done” specially with this small-sized, handy equipment. We tried it on a car and yo, the results were fast and amazingly pleasing.
The box was neatly packed and when we opened it, we found this high-pressure pump enclosed in a bright yellow body with a handle on the top, a trigger gun, spray lance, and a 6-metre long high-pressure hose line. Assembling was easy and within a few minutes the ‘gun’ was ready to take on all that unwanted dust and grime on the body and even the underbelly of the car down inside.
Water connection was given from the tap we have in the garden though the handbook says that even a bucket full of water can be used in case there is no tap around the area where you intend to do the washing. Once the needful was done and the power supply started, the machine was ready with the necessary pressure for the cleaning process.
The technical specifications say that the built pressure is capped at 100 bars, while the flow rate is in the range of 270-300 litres/hour. With a cleaning agent sprayed well, the car - a Maruti Ciaz was sparkling clean within minutes and the tyres were like brand new, set free of all that much stuck on it from the roads travelled. The driver who helped in the clean up was short of words in trying to explain the utility of the equipment. He said it was akin to what it was at the big and expensives garages. But this was quick, easy and hassle free.
We felt the same as the Karcher K1 pressure washer is a must have not only for its compact size and dimensions but also for the comfort level of the whole process. Priced at Rs 8999, its not expensive also and is a value for money. Since this pressure washer has been designed for washing vehicles, and other outdoor fixtures like garden furniture, barbecues, pathways, stairs, and so on, its simple wow!
