Default Karcher WV50

This wee beastie has sold out before Christmas in thousands of places including B&Q, Tesco and Costco. i have tried one and its superb, I have one arriving for a present from my parents. Now that our bedroom is at the back end of the MH and well vented we never steam up, but prior to this and for cleaning, especially an A Class, I dont think I have seen a better piece of kit. I may be behind the times here, but I dont think I have seen it discussed?
Has anyone else tried one?

Default Great machine

Yep tis a great machine, very useful. I use it for cleaning all the house windows, (we also have the cleaner and fluid addition) also clean MH windows but the curved front screen is a problem from the inside especially If you leave too much water in the holding tank, it sprays out if held at a 90 degree angle but empty it regularly and is fine. Also use it to dry off car and MH after washing.

Absolutely nowt wrong with vinegar and newspaper but it seems daft to have to go to the papershop and buy a paper just to wash the windows with specially, seeing as we never have them otherwise !

its ok..............I have one.....but not brilliant

A pro quality blade and handle does the job just as well if not better

But you need to buy them from specialist window cleaning suppliers recharging and faffing around.

We had one for ages, it's good cos we have 3 sets of Patio windows, yet to try it on the M/Home bit of fiddling to get the best results but leaves the Patio windows sparkling.
