In the Box

  • 1 x Bosch AQT 40-13 Pressure Washer
  • 1 x patio cleaner
  • 1 x instruction manual

Bottom line

This is a solid pressure washer from a well respected company, it is powerful enough to tackle most jobs and is well priced. This model does come with a patio cleaner and is very easy to set up and use. Although priced well the pressure washer overall feels a little bit fragile, it doesn’t feel as robust or as well built compared to a Karcher or Nilfisk pressure washer.

Good deals can be picked up on this model and if you are looking for something that maybe used once a month for car washing or odd jobs then it is worth considering, however if you want something that is a bit more robust then you may want to check out the Karcher K4 or a Nilfisk pressure washers, these also come with a warranty for piece of mind.

    I agree Francis, I’ve only used mine a couple of times and the pressure gun leaks really bad now. I get more water on me than the object i’m actually trying to wash. Very dissapointing.

      Same here. Badly leaking around the handle and gun hose inlet. Only used it a couple of times.

      • Allan Rowland

        On the good side customer support are replacing the gun. I will follow some guides I found on the internet and attempt to identify where it is leaking from.

          Hi Rowan,
          my AQT 40-13 is out of warranty and is leaking at the hose inlet also.
          Should I buy another gun? Is just the gun an assessory?
