    Arrived quickly and well packaged. Considering the price and manufacturer, I had high hopes for this product. I was not disappointed. If like me you live in an apartment and do not have access to a water supply or power this is the perfect tool for washing your car in the street. Well constructed, except for the poorly designed battery cover which is difficult to operate and is likely to break or fall off at some point. Otherwise it’s great for washing a medium size car with about half of the 15L water capacity. It’s quite heavy with a full tank so getting the measure of what you need makes it easier to wheel around. I bought a 15L “caravan” water tank and fill the Bosch from that in the street. You still need a bucket and sponge as detergent does not go in the Bosch machine. Its more like a pressurised hose than a real pressure cleaner but make no mistake, for cleaning cars it’s all you need.

    Update 4 april 20, bought in Dec 19.

    Was using it today and the fitting you twist the hose onto the machine popped out. Looking at it there is a very thin ring of plastic which isn’t strong/ thick enough. More poor quality. Very disappoint. Now have to see how easy it is for bosch to help through Amazon.

    Great idea and works well.

    Things that could have been made better – for the price the wheels wobbly and because the battery cover lock is useless it keeps opening (rubbish design). The water tank would have been nice if it was a little larger or had a hose pickup. A foam gun would have been nice also as the connectors are not universal. However, the gun and pressure are good for what it is designed for and the battery will last a large est car but the water tank will not.

    Overall its good for not having to drag a hose round.

    Oh, before you try to unhook the hose to refill it of water to finish your car, you need to switch it off to release the pressure.

    I bought this to water the front garden as it’s a pain getting a 100ft hosepipe from the tap at the back of the house to stretch round to the front of the house and even then it doesn’t reach everywhere. The good thing is it’s easy to put it together and it wheels to wherever you want to use it. The only downside using it for this is that it doesn’t hold a lot of water – probably about 4 watering cans worth so if I want to water more than the pots at the front I have to take it back to the tap to fill it up again a few times. Still easier though.
    The other thing I bought it for was to use the jet setting on the spray to shift bird muck off the paths as it’s not worth getting the mains pressure washer out just for that. I was disappointed with this aspect as the jet spray setting doesn’t seem any more forceful than the jet setting on the spray gun attached to the ordinary hosepipe. Because the Bosch has a motor powered by the battery I assumed it would have more power than the hosepipe. I knew it wouldn’t match the mains pressure washer but I expected more from it.
    So all in all it works and is easy to use. Saves lugging watering cans to parts of the garden where the ordinary hosepipe struggles to reach but it’s proven to be expensive just for that and had I known about the low power I don’t think I would have bought it.

    I bought this so I can wash my campervan whilst it is in storage, unfortunately the storage site doesn’t allow us to use their facilities.

    I half filled the unit before transporting by car, I then carry loads of 2ltr bottles to fill up and refill. The bottles are reused each time, but the unit is too heavy for me to lift when full so I have no option. There are 3 speeds for the volume of water, I used the highest speed with the spray gun, even with 15ltrs it ran through the water fast. I used 30ltrs to completely wash a campervan in excess of 6 meters long.

    Would I recommend it, absolutely. I was using a hand pump unit before and it took forever and wasn’t anywhere near as effective.

    The unit is compact, there is a little locker at the bottom for the battery and a locker at the top that stores the spray gun and brush, the hose tucks into a section at the rear of the unit. It’s hard to get back in when finished but you just need a little patience.

    The only downside I’ve found is it’s tricky to undo the hose from the unit, I’ve found being careful and using a glove for additional grip does the job, it’s also good to keep the trigger of the gun pressed, this releases the last of the pressurised water. I’m very careful removing and attaching the hose as a lot of the criticisms I read are about the clips breaking…..slowly slowly, gently does it and I hope it will last for years.

    Great product very mobile easy to use rugged build as it is a Bosch and its German i love German products the attention to detail is crazy everything fits within this compact unit. dont get me wrong its not a powered pressure washer but if you are restricted for electric and water supply then this is the solution i have tried the worx its not practical as again you need to carry water and hoses etc this is basically fill up roll out and get the job done easily can wash a car no problem. So please as i have said it designed for a purpose and that is mobility for that reason alone its a 5 star product its robust and definitely tough construction and i am using it daily as it is accessible all you do is recharge the battery which is only 1 hour than you get a charge of 30 mins to 1 hour dependant on the setting that you use and there are 3 in total min. mid and max.

    This arrived very quickly and was perfect for the small courtyard to be cleaned. The capacity of 15 litres gives around 5 minutes continuous operation at full power, so my approach was to have a second battery on charge while spraying, then put the first battery on charge while refilling and spraying using the second battery. By cycling around like this, I managed to do the job over a period of about 40 minutes. So, if you plan to do something similar without access to a hosepipe for water supply, and can have a couple of chargers on the go at the same time, then this pressure washer is just what you need. Obviously, it does not have the power of a mains powered and hose-pipe connected one but it is a well-designed, easy to use, and convenient piece of kit.
