Clarke-pressure-washer

Machine Mart has introduced two Clarke heavy-duty petrol-driven pressure washers to its range.

They have protective steel frames, folding handles (so are easy to store) and big pneumatic tyres for use on uneven ground.

Main features are a professional-style hose and lance with high/low/pencil adjustments, a powerful 260bar/3,771psi pressure output, plus a detergent pick-up hose with filter.

These models can also now draw their own water from a water butt or barrel so are suited for use in remote locations.
