Purchased from Aldi. A very powerful machine for the money which was approximately half the price of the equivalent Karcher model. I was told that Karcher make this Powercraft model raft and it does look and feel the same.

I bought the washer from Aldi 6 yrs ago and it worked well until 5 yrs ago the pump block cracked and i had to take it to a HSS hire centre who handle repairs for Powercraft.

Bought a karcher 221m from Argos and took it back because of lack of power. Went and bought this power craft from ALDI that looks like a karcher and it is so powerful.It has a maximum pressure of 150 bar, but works at 120 bar. It comes with brush for the car and detergent. It is quite heavy but is on wheels, I have done all the drive and think it is fantastic. Complete with 3 year guarantee you can not go wrong at less than £80 (read more)
