Power washer is ready to roam

CHECO claims to have eliminated the need to tether a power washer to a tap or power source with its latest model, the Roamer Hotshot.

The chassis-mounted pressure washer uses a Suzuki engine which can run on butane or propane, and the firm says all thats needed is a suitable water tank to keep the washer supplied with water.

Water is heated to 125C using a gas boiler, which is activated automatically when the trigger is squeezed, and the roamer can be used as a cold water washer by isolating the boiler.

Working pressure is 1500psi, price is £3736. (0800-371165).
