This is a 'vintage' pressure washing machine but, despite it's age, it has NEVER been used, consequently it is in excellent condition and the seal is perfect - I've even got the original instruction leaflet so no guessing how much water etc to put in. The 'only' fault with it, if it can be called that, is that the label on the front is creased! :rolleyes:

As the postage would be a bit due to the size I'd like £50 including P&P.

It is ideal for a motorhome, camper, caravan, camping, or for use at home if you only have a few items to wash so you can use this instead of your normal washing machine.

We bought this last year with the idea of taking it with us in the camper on longer trips to do our washing, however as we're now planning on taking a generator with us we'll need space for that so there's no point in keeping the washer when it's just gonna gather dust at home ... I may regret selling it but as we're hoping to move this year (downsize) some stuff just has to go! :D

This washer is quite a rare beast being a 'vintage' product made of good quality plastic, not one of the more modern ABS ones which are IMV more flimsy. You sometimes can pick up a vintage metal version but they are quite a bit heavier.

The clothes are cleaned due to the pressure created by the churning which forces the soapy water through them to lifts off the dirt. It is eco-friendly as it uses no electricity and is lightweight when empty. The frame can be removed to make it smaller for storage if required.

It doesn't require electricity ... just water and washing liquid/powder ... and a bit of elbow grease! :D

How to wash:
  • Put in the clothes (2.5kg load max - less for bulky items or those that will 'swell' when wet)
  • Add washing liquid and hot water (liquid is better as some powders don't dissolve well)
  • Put on the lid and twist the knob to clamp it down
  • Slot on the handle
  • Churn for up to 2 minutes (less if the clothes aren't very dirty)
  • Remove the clothes and wring out a bit
  • Empty out the water
  • Put in clean water, place the clothes back in and clamp the lid on
  • Churning again for 30 seconds to rinse them
  • Remove the clothes, hand-wring and hang up.
If you have more than one load to do, don't empty soapy water out of the drum after the first wash, instead just remove the clothes wring the water out back into the drum, then pop the next load in with more water/liquid as required, when you've done all your washes, then do the rinsing.

Not quite as much as we used to have, we've gradually been having a clear out over the last year so almost all the tents and camping equipment has gone so now we're turning our attention to 'our' bits and bobs. There will be more to come though! :D

Ah, you must've been the one who bought the Pressawash metal one ... brilliant kit hence why we bought the above when we saw it as they are rarely seen 'in the wild'! As I mentioned we bought the latter one with the intention of using it in our camper but it isn't gonna be so might as well let someone else have fun with it! :D2 Might be of interest to butter lovers ... possibly used as a churn ... but NOT for cement! :eek:

... for those who don't want to 'exercise' whilst they churn, they could rig it up with a hamster wheel on the outside ... it would need to be a BIG hamster though! :LOL:

For those thinking about this, they are great for doing undies, socks and stuff, which need daily washing and what we use it for. Recommended. :)
