Gave this its first outing yesterday and was very impressed by the power from it. Was using the tornado nozzle and it absolutely tore through the moss in the driveway.

Was using a borrowed Karcher a few weeks back to do same job and was a lot more work even with the moss covered in washing powder for a few days first to kill it off. Possibly unfair comparison because the Karcher wasn't as powerful a model and was a few years older but the job was so much easier.

Wasn't overly impressed by the other nozzle, worked fine for a while and then the machine started pulsing with it and losing power, maybe it was a bit blocked or I had it tightened too much towards the +.

Couldn't figure out the hose reel other than just taking it off and unrolling it manually which completely defeats the purpose. If anyone has any ideas on how to use it properly I'm all ears.

Do you still need to borrow one? Give us a shout. I'm in D24 but I'm sure we can figure some thing out.

As in not enough water getting into the pump? I thought that myself but when I switched nozzles it was fine again. Must keep an eye on it.

Amazon have the C110 model on daily deal today for £59.99 with patio cleaner which seems a great price. Its not as powerful as the 135 but still 1400W and supposed to be a great little machine too.

Still pumps 440L/h same as C135 so seems an excellent price really.

Saw this on HUKD earlier and ordered. Could have used the 'motor wash' accessories but I can't believe you would need a specific nozzle just to wash bikes and cars. Fingers crossed this will get delivered and work as expected. Will update.

The C110 is a great washer. I have one over a year now and I paid €110 in Argos for it. Its a steal at that price

Had one of these delivered yesterday. Used it this evening - plenty of pressure - great machine.
Actually had a C135 delivered last week but it was damaged and sent it back. Couldn't believe the weight of it, even the postie had difficulty moving it.
The C110 is half the weight and easy to handle.
