Introdutory price. Looks like very decent specs but unsure of the quality of Mechpro washers.
Can did wash cars? Or do you still need to scrub?
No cash wash attachments from what i can see mate - im looking at getting this Gerni one which does come with attachments with Chrissy bunnings gifts vouchers i'll be getting
I have been eyeing on the Gerni too. Do you think bunning will ever have it to go on sale? If not, what is the cheapest way to score one? Thanks.
good question - AFAIK just using powerpass is i think the only discount way. Might get you up to 5% off ($10~) but apart from that not sure if any other way. Would love to be corrected…. bunnings gift cards dont go on sale do they (like the current woolies and previous coles ones)
That looks like a good deal to me, comes with pretty much every attachment you'll need bar the drain hose. Just don't use that brush on your car's paint.
Reminds me of this deal.
Oof so many sensitive people here, when it was a genuine q. Neg away so that your lives feel a bit better.
I have one from the last time it was on sale. Can confirm you still need to scrub.
I got the Black & Decker from Kmart last week, however, still picked it up. Should I return that and pick this one up instead? Really confused.
You could have the one from bunnings
Similar specks, for $48
maybe need higher psi to not need scrubbing? 3k psi? 4k psi? 5k psi?
What if such high psi damage the paint?
@Rakibul: at which level damages paint?
It needs a wider spread too. This one will either give you high pressure or a wide pattern - not both.
@thatguyfromthatplace: OH yeah, that too I guess, so its not so focused all on one spot….
I never used this before so this is a genuine question, how does it draw water? The electrical cord is 8m so do I have to connect 8m water hose to it?
Yes, you'd attach a normal garden hose to it.
yep…. you can use your 30m hose and then use a external power extension cord to make it more versatile or stick with 8m cords
This depends on where your power and water sources are located.
Attach the hose to the electrical outlet
just ordered. delivery $9.90
Thanks - Does anyone know if this is any better: https://www.amazon.com.au/Pressure-Washer-Electric-Machine-A...
That has a 5% discount code and it's red… Red goes faster for sure
but does it have rgb
8m hose vs 6m… and the hose reel. Other specs look pretty similar.
No snow foam cannon included with that. The included soap bottle is not the same as a foam cannon.
I bought the Bosch Universal Aquatak 135 last week for $199 HERE
This $99 MechPro looks to be comparable in performance but only has 12 months warranty whereas the Bosch as 3 years.
I'm somewhat bias with the Bosch brand and I'll be using it to clean concrete driveway, house facade, gutters and for washing the car.
But for 1/2 the cost, it's worth the outlay.
Bosch Universal Aquatak 135:
* Pressure: 1958 PSI / 135 bar
* Max. flow rate: 410 l/h
* Motor power: 1900 W
* Max. flow temp: 40 °C
* Overload / Thermal Stop: Yes
* Hose: 7 m
* Cable: 5 m
* Weight: 7.9 kg
Scope of supply
* Bosch Universal Aquatak 135 High-Pressure Washer
* Bosch high-pressure gun
* Adapter for Kärcher Accessories
* 3-in-1 nozzle
* High-pressure detergent nozzle, 450 ml
* 7 m high-pressure hose
* Water filter
I wonder with that amount of water pressure, whether it will damage painted concrete driveway? Will the paint crack/peel off?
I use a Karcher K2 (~1400psi) to clean my exterior painted rendered walls and it holds up fine. Just don't get too close.
I purchased the Bosch from that deal as well. I got it to replace the $90 Ozito https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/560135, its hose connectors did not match any other known brand on the market, so I couldn't find an extension hose or even a replacement one. At least with the Bosch, accessories and parts won't be a problem.
The Mechpro is probably a bit cheap and nasty, but particularly good value with the 8m hose reel and a proper snow cannon. I would have got it if not for the Bosch deal.
I just bought Ferrex High Pressure Washer $99.99 @ ALDI Special Buys with 3 yrs warranty and more attachments(https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/582958)
I haven't opened the box yet.
This one has metal pump but with 1 yr warrant and no attachments.
Should I return the Aldi one and get this one? not sure which one is better
Metal pump always wins over plastic.
I'm not too fussed. I had a metal pump unit years ago and the hose joint cracked in the handle. So the unit was broken because of that. Wasn't prepared to buy a new handle. Tried changing O ring to no avail.
I'm happy with my ALDI Ferrex unit and glad it's got a 3 year warranty. Can take it back if anything breaks including plastic pump.
Edit: Woops, didn't mean this as a reply
Good specs, inc metal pump, for a C note washer. Snow cannon alone is worth $30
8m hose with reel and a proper snow cannon are a big plus if you are using this for washing your car.
I gave my Dad a Mechpro pressure washer from Repco a few years ago. It had to be returned because the hose started leaking.
So i'm not so sure about the quality. You get what you pay for. $99 seems a bit way too cheap for a pressure washer around 2200PSI unless they cut corners when it comes to the build quality.
I find the length of the pressure gun hose is the most important when washing a car.
I have the POS Ozito that only has a 3m hose. It’s a pain having to move the entire unit everytime you move to the other side of the car.
Agree completely. I trip over the damn thing too as I'm trying to move everything lol
Interesting deal. Spec's look pretty good for the price. I just need something to wash the car with and maybe clean the windows.
Does anyone know if its easy to get other accessories or replacement parts for these mechpro's?
I just picked one up with Paver attachment also. Item comes with Snow cannon so would be great for the car. Not tested yet but all looks good and a bargain for the price.
Thanks mate! I'll think i will give it a shot for the price.
The car constantly gets dirty and shat on anyway from the local birds so it should pay itself off within the month compared to the normal car wash prices!
Is the price expected to go up? I couldn’t see on the website that this is introductory price?
Still showing $99 for me (Sydney stores).
Better get in quick.
it ends the 15th according to the website.
in store it said that the normal price after the introductory price will be $149.
we can all agree that pressure washer is only useful for 4x4s that go rock climbing or mudding and you want to clean all that dirt and grime off….. Otherwise normal scrubbing with sponge and bucket of soap is good enough….
