Looks like a good price. Anyone care to advise whether they're any good ?

There is a little video on the Lidl website, looks like it does the job, not going to be super super powerful but seems like it will do most jobs around the garden. Ideal for washing the car.

I use my karcher of similar spec to this one from a water butt. It takes a little longer to get to full power (about a minute or two) and I think it does not quite get to its max pressure of 100 bar as it would from mains tap. For washing the car it is fine, but jet washing patio etc I haven't attempted yet.
If you want a patio cleaner accessory included (and why wouldn't you lol?) I would recommend the Nilfisk C110 (with 2 year warranty) for £65 here:

(It was £58.49 at Amazon until very recently as i got mine from there but it's up to £76 now!)

Just bought anf tested seems decent enough for the money.
Seems a decent deal. However if you want something from a more well known brand take a look at karcheroutlet.co.uk/ . Where i got my last one and not much more than this.
i got one last year and only lasted a month but did use it doing everything so ran most days for that month just got refund back as i didnt want another.would go for a better brand?

I would suggest that you might want to have a filter on the water pick up to prevent anything clogging the mechanism. Aside from that, it should be OK.
As somone illuded to above you get residues in the water butt that you wont get from a tap that can harm the performance even kill your pressure washer. I assume its filled from a standard downpipe from a rainwater gutter. Therefore Bird poo, tree sap, tile mortar and all sorts of debris will get into the water butt, even with a filter of some sort i wouldn't risk damaging the machine is it worth it? even for those on a water meter your only talking pence to jet wash a car.
^ Cheers intikab, I did not want to pay another 20quid atm for hose with filter, as my water butt has only been installed for a couple of months it is relatively clean.

My motive for not using the mains is not really eco or cost saving, rainwater is the best to wash with due to it not leaving a residue after drying

very true.

Used to have an industrial pressure washer for commercial use and ran it off a couple of giant open-air water tanks for a number of years. Being exposed to the elements made the tanks disgusting and had to have a huge filter on the end of the pipe.

Theres no way i'd have ever took the filter off, i wish i had a photo of the state of the tanks to deter anyone from doing it. If i'd have had the option of taking it off a running water supply i would have, but didn't have that option.
Went to Lidl to pick one up, just washed the car with it.

It has potential surely, lovely compact size and it is ideal for the car, I have tried cleaning a patio stone with it and it does do it, but not as well as the karcher I used to borrow off my parents. The Karcher was about £200 at the time mind you, so I suppose it is going to do a better job.

It does wrap nicely together, but the high pressure hose is a pain, and it will be needing some cable ties.
Anyone know if one of the attachments with it can be used with snowfoam?
I bourght my own pressure washer from tesco for £2.49 and i use it on JET setting pik below

I put some car shampoo in the detergent attachment and it put a slight foam over the car? Thats about it I think.

Quite worried about the accessory "Nilfisk Rim Brush" on this page - overkill surely for what should be part of ones basic showering routine?

If you want to use snowfoam successfully, then a dedicated lance attachment is required at a cost of around £45 - any others [including the karcher small bottle] are crap by comparison.

e.g. http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/washing-and-drying/snow-foam-lance-various-fittings/prod_371.html

Can be supplied with various fittings, though don't know which one the Lidl one might use.

I too would highly recommend the Nilfisk alternative posted earlier, over this, even though it is a bit dearer....
Been using for a day now to clean my patio. Seems to do a pretty good job. Some spots it won't shift but I doubt any pressure washer would as even a wire brush won't shift them!

Only issue is the accessory holder at the back is a little flimsy and doesn't support the weight of the lance very well. Has already cracked so might take I back and swap it over.
were can i buy the accessories 1 of my atachments broke please can u let me know if i can buy replacement parts?
For the money brilliant. Did exactly what I wanted. Would recommend it.
Used mine for the first time on Indian sandstone flagstones. To tell you the truth I'm not impressed. It's left marks which would have been removed if I'd used a karcher. You get what you pay for. It is cheap but does a cheap job. I think it will be ok on the car but who wants to have to set up the pressure washer when a general hosing down with a hosepipe will do the same job. Ratings out of 10, I'd give it 5
