I realised after I posted that it was in the wrong place, sorry.
Here is a link. I've found it for around £375

That machine would be considered a toy in the pressure washing industry.

The minimum standard needed would be a 11-13hp engine driving a 15-21lt pump at 3000psi,

Trying to getaway with spending less than a grand would be unwise unless you found a good quality second hand machine

I was concentrating solely on lpm and thought 18.9 was pretty good. But hp is a factor too obviously! I didn't necessarily want to go cheap but thought this might be ok and I read on another thread that briggs and stratton were ok. I'll keep searching!
Thanks, Keir

Try jetmac.co.uk

Or Rutland pumps.

I’ve had two machines from jetmac and never had a problem.

You want a Loncin 21lpm 3000psi or Honda engine. (Loncin is a bit cheaper, and still very reliable)

Mine have never missed a beat.

So we are looking at something more like this?

Thanks, Keir

Not really - might last you a month or two

Buy QUALITY  - that’s not cheap but will last - my Honda gx390’s last around 5 years and they are run absolutely ragged - many times 10 hours a day - full chat and if I remember I might occasionally change the oil  ;D
