Karcher HDS 1000 DE hot & cold diesel pressure washer
« on: Yesterday at 09:28:37 am »
Hello guys
A quick question on this machine

There is one of these for sale local to me,  does anyone use one of these that can share some info.

I went to see it last night, machine not been used since last summer but started up no probs, and a few mins later I could feel the tube on the lance getting hot, so all seemed to be ok. I did notice the boiler gives off a fair bit of smoke, is this due to not being ran we only ran it for 5 mins or so once I felt tube going hot I turned it off.
Also Will this machine draw from a tank, we tested it with it being hose fed from a tap

Thanks guys
Any info guys would be appreciated

Matt

Iíve used similar but they are always tap fed - they have a small tank inside the cowl

Yes these things can smoke like an old steam train !

Have a look here for more info

I think they are OK for valeting in a car lot or similar .  I donít think I would want to use one on drivesand similar.  But have a chat with Ben at Rutland he will give you a genuine opinion.

Thanks Darran

I hope ur doing well I know u avnt been in the best of health

It made good reading and does say hose fed on manual 🙈

Maybe similar this is more like a van mounted in a frame but nothing van mounted about it if it don't draw water from the tank, this is the whole idea to have everything within the van

I spoke with Ben a while back regarding going hot but, he not a man to make a deal happen unfortunately

Thanks guys al keep looking

I did read a post off Darran regarding Q washers on eBay, I think using a hot box is the easiest and most convenient way to go ..... A 12v one that is 😂

They have a van mounted one on a little frame I spotted the other day on eBay

You surprise me with Ben!  He is not pushy as a salesman but certainly seems to know his stuff.  I think he likes to let you make your own mind up once he has offered his opinion

Always found Ben very friendly and helpful, certainly better than q washers anyway

HI Matt !

over the worst, but still have what they are calling a compressed nerve - just means I am unable to walk properly - I dearly hope they get it sorted soon as work load is mental

Ben is great and can do you a great deal - but easily distracted and unless you wish to keep ringing him will just forget what you want - personally updating P/W's and need 4 new ones but Ben has yet to answer 2 emails so I would rather goto someone that will give me service

try A1 Pressure washers in Ipswich - if your brave enough mention my name

or defo talk to these guys - they seem to be offering some great prices at the moment - but haven't used them yet
