No I don't - I own a steam cleaner which is not quite as strong.

I don't think they are expensive however would have a problem using one, so will have to look into getting one so my son can do the jobs for me!

I currently do not own a pressure cleaner.

I have an actual Gerni but I used to have a Karcher in another life. My brother bought an Aldi one. All work fine. Mine is a "Classic100.2 Gerni" I think I paid about $120 for it. I have never known anybody who had one that broke down. I tend to think I would go for a brand name. Mine has 2 wands, 2 nozzles and a bottle for detergent etc. It is about ten now and has never missed a beat.

wow, that is good - I guess people mostly write a review when it is bad! is it strong enough to get dog "marks" off pavers? and also moss?
by Finy
Oh yes. . . . I managed to zap the brand name off one of my cars! Hahahaha
by Rice
Far out Rice! That is seriously good pressure.
by Naomi
I do. I have a small Gerni and I love it. They are so water efficient that I try to remember to use it instead of the hose for little jobs around the place. They do make the most hideous noise though :(
by Rice
Which gerni do you have Rice? Looked them up but bad reports
by Finy
The noise is loud! My kids like to stay inside and the dogs take off!
by Naomi
Yes. We don't use it though. My son comes over and uses it to wash his car. It does a brilliant job. Apart from that, we don't use it. We don't want to be a Wally with water.
Yes and it is great for outdoor clean ups. We use it to clean mould on pavers/driveways so they don't become a hazard and slippery, the windows, fly screens and vehicles and windows. It works really well, usually a small amount of water but is quite loud.
what brand and model is it Naomi - I want it mainly for pavers....
by Finy
It is a Karche. It is large and petrol (sorry not sure of size). We have had no problems. Whatever you choose where ear plugs and use a wide nossle or you blow the dirt away between the bricks.
by Naomi
just looked at Karchers online as I have a steam cleaner from them but the one that is for pavers is $1000!
by Finy
Some of the ones with the flash attachments are expensive! You can get a basic one from Bunnings from $100, and based on your budget (and how stubborn the mould is!), you may need some, but not all, of the attachments. The sales and promotions at Bunnings and at tractor stores are good, particular if you need other things like a mower or blower vac.

A good option is to test or hire one at Kennards (or similar) or borrow from a friend and see if you like it.
by Naomi
thanks Naomi - the one I saw was enclosed and did not make a mess which I assume the spray type ones do??
I know when my friend once did it, there was dirty "splash" marks all over my furniture etc??
by Finy
The angle you hold it will help to reduce the spray. Mud everywhere is not fun! Particularly is you are getting ready for a BBQ or party!
by Naomi
No, but I am able to borrow a really super industrial one from a friend when I need one!
We own one and use it on thd tiles in the gazebo when they start to look as though it needs a good clean. Have used it on the concrete paths but not so efficient as they have been there for over 45 years.
I have one. I am reluctant to use it for two reasons. It is noisy and it's hose is very difficult to manage. The hose is stiff and doesn't wind up neatly- at any moment can spring free and end up a tangled birds nest that catches everything in its web for a metre diameter. It is hard to wind out too and tries to remain all kinky in the wrong direction. In the past my husband replaced the stupid hose with one that was flexible, but he hasn't done that on this machine unfortunately.
He has commented a couple of times that he should bring the one at work home. It can heat water and is better quality.
annfi - which brand/model, should I NOT get?
by Finy
I just shove mine all back in the box and tell it to behave.
by Rice
Finy ours is a Karcher. Apart from the hose it is quite good.
by annfi
Rice mine definitely needs a firm talking to. We didn't keep the box, and that may have helped it to behave.
by annfi
Hahahaha. Oh yes, a box is always good. I quite often tell Himself to get back in his box!!
by Rice
No but I would use one if I did
by AJ

We have a Gerni. It is loud, but I just use it as motivation to get the job done quickly!

Probably only used 2-3 times a year. I lend it to my family members and I think they use it a lot more than we do.
