This is a well priced pressure washer and if you are not looking at spending too much and don’t intend to use it that often then this is worth considering. It comes with a good range of attachments making it ideal for car cleaning, washing down pathways, garden furniture or bikes. In terms of the design and build it could be improved, there are a few comments regarding problems with the rear hose input attachment where other customers have said it seemed loose and is prone to slipping out.
That being said the money it is good value and for something that may get used once a month it doesn’t break the bank and does the job well. If you are looking for something with a little more power then the next model up from Vax is the P86-P2-P Pressure Washer.
At this price point it can be compared to the entry level Karcher K2 pressure washer which is a very robust and well built device, however it doesn’t come with the same or as many attachments as this Vax P86-P1-C.
