Mid last year I was very tempted to get K2.360 but end up didnt pull the trigger
Actually why need dismantle after every use? cannot just leave the whole setup so next time use much more convenient?
And how much pressure is categorized as too strong for car wash?
The K5 has wheels, thought should be quite mobilize wor

I don't like the idea of the long pipes and wiring just hang around the corner looking like a mess, hence every time I have to bundle the wiring & pipe nicely before leaving it in the yard.

Oh and I live in a landed house, and sometimes my neighbor would be drying their clothes on a rack in their garden and when the pressure is so strong the water would sometimes go over the fence.

Also the pressure is so strong, the water would not stay on my car when I'm trying to wet it before a car wash, if you know what I mean. Personal preference though, I want my car to have some water on it to make washing easier.

I got one karcher water jet, bought this 20 years ago still works as normal

Use it to wash off muds from car tyre and lower compartment only and seldom use it that's why can last 2 decades

About other brand I'm not that sure

If i wash my car with the pressure washer... confirm neighbor cars / laundry also will get wet a bit.

So have to wait until they are out if i want to use the pressure washer to wash the car.

Get longer hose. Wash outside your house.

Later kena rompak. I rather save the hassle and use my garden hose instead.
