Reliable Hot pressure washer?

Hi all
I’m looking for a reliable hot pressure washer single or 3 phase, want something that you can get parts for in the future. We don’t have big usage, probably 2hrs a week on average, but want something that will last!
What are peoples thoughts on good ones and ones to avoid! Obviously don’t want to spend a fortune…
Thanks

Don't buy a Nilfisk then. Just had mine 1 1/2 year and it's seen more of the mechanic then the previous alto ( predecessor of nilfisk) in 20 or so years. Granted the old one was only cold water.

Kränzle is all the rage here. It's often argued that they're the only manufacturer that shows their heating coil because it isn't sh!t like in the others. :ROFLMAO:

I've got a simple Nilfisk cold washer and it's been brilliant in the couple of years I have had it. Chap I know has one for cleaning cars and uses is constantly (non-commercial version) and he seems happy with his too.

Had a 3 phase nixon for about 15 years. Been a good washer and have replaced the original Pump, motor and heating coil over the past 18 months, was impressed we could still get the parts off them and next day too 👍

We are looking too... Ehrle has been suggested... anyone any thoughts on them?
I have an Ehrle. In all honesty I would rather use a bucket and brush! It has been the most unreliable tool I’ve bought in a long time and the supplier T Workshop in Suffolk seem to be incapable of fixing it for more than a fortnight . I won’t have either back again.

Have an Alto Nilfisk Neptune 4 probably superseded by now think there is a few more professional level ones above this, does a good job. Only problem with Alto or Karcher as far as i am aware they make all their own parts and you can only get parts from their dealers whereas some of the other makes just buy in parts from more generic manufacturers, wider availability and usually lower prices.

Yeah my old one did days on end and never a problem. Popped a seal a while ago and since I liked a hot washer I figured I cut my losses after 20 or so years and buy a brand new spanker.
To be fair there was nothing big wrong with the new one but it was fairly dissapointing. Let's hope the next 20 years prove me wrong.
