The Bosch AQT 35-12 might not win any pressure washer awards but it’s functional and we like it for several reasons including the fact that its a small machine with a hinged handle that folds down making for easy storage.
The 35-12 isn’t too loud and the wheels make for easy transportation. There are some optional additions ( a 90° nozzle and a patio cleaner) which you can buy however in our opinion the unit should function well for lighter domestic applications without any additional purchases.
