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.

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.

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.

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.
