Ease of use:
Set up was straightforward and very quick, with no tools needed. Simple clip-and-lock connections had the machine ready to wash within minutes of leaving the box.

Operation:
The detergent tank is attached to the lance, and the mix and flow is adequate, if a little erratic. When it comes to blasting grime, however, this tiny machine punches way above its weight. The Hozelock's fan-style nozzle and its rotary pattern sibling were easy to adjust and surprisingly merciless when set upon anything from ground-in car grime to moss-encrusted drives and algae-coated patios.

The long power cable also made it easy to use with the minimum of snagging as we progressed around the car.

Storage
A very clever machine, with all the storage angles covered. The hose hooks over the trigger, which in-turn can be clipped to the machine when not in use to create an additional handle to carry the machine. Both lances can also be stowed on the machine – as can the detergent bottle – and there are hooks to take care of the power cable.

What Car? says...
It's not the most powerful machine, the detergent flow is a little erratic, but it's hard to find any serious fault with it. It's clever, effective and great value. If you're after a budget machine without the budget performance, then this is where your money should go.
