This unit is comprehensive. It comes with everything you’d expect from a modern pressure washer. A long 6-meter cable, easy fitting parts, plus two wheels to help you move around the 37.8x39x73.6cm and 15.8kg aluminium pump and two different nozzles.
The pressure here is generated from a powerful 1700w aluminium pump that generates a water pressure measured at a 130 bar. To give you content, the average bathroom tap and shower typically flows between 0.1 and 3 bar.
