Aldi/Lidl pressure washers

Postby TheEnglishman » Fri Jul 06, 2012 22:32 pm

Having had my fill of Karcher washers blowing up I wondered if the lidl/aldi washers have the same hose adaptors? I've got a pile of karcher bits and wondered if I could use those.

No one's ever bought a lidl pressure washer and used Karcher tools/hoses?

I've had an Aldi one - lasted just a couple of weeks. Took back.

Picked up a Halfords one for half price. Most don't take the same fittings !

Got my Karcher one half price from Tesco; still working. Mind you, it's had a bit of a holiday courtesy of the hosepipe ban.

I used a pressure washer a few times until I discovered that every conceivable space in the bike was full of water.There was water in the tyres, the hubs, the frame.......best not to wash it at all.
