    $199.....You can guess what type of quality you'll be buying.


    Just make sure it has a one year guarantee at least, and that you can return it to the (local) store you bought it at for a refund.
    If its a 'return to manufacturer' type guarantee, dont touch it.

    Compared to my experience, that seems expensive??? I needed one and bought a cheapie from SC for about $70, first one lasted 30 min, second one lasted 40 min. Since that I have had a small Karcher from SuperC for 188 and it has been great. Just make sure you have earth leakage protection

    It looks impressive. The cheapo ones usually split the plastic wand. That one has a metal wand. it could be ok. I'm not sure i like the idea of having a petrol engined one though. It's fuel is always going to be stale when you want to use it.

    I bought the karcher too.. the little baby one. There's one that's $100 and one that's $200 from memory. I went the more expensive one as it's made in germany, the cheap one was made in china.
