Cheers for the link but I've realised we need one that sucks water from a resevoir/butt/tank set up..

I have an old Karcher - worked a treat for years then started giving problems so I bought a new one. It washes well enough but the hose is on a reel that is a fixture to the pump and it is a right ******* to use. It's a pig to wind off, you fight the thing while in use and it's a pig to reel up.

You have been warned.

Perhaps this is the item in question?

Don't know if this can be bought cheaper anywhere else, however, it's on offer at good old B&Q - £205 was £385!

I have a bosch one like the Karcher with the hose on a reel and it works a treat, I find it much better to use like this than fighting with a long hose that has a mind of it's own! :o

It's electric, not petrol!

Got a Karcher one on a trolly I've had for twenty odd years and still going strong. Think its a 588 model. Shame they don't make em anymore.
