Several negative reviews on Amazon have stated that the unit arrived a little damaged. Pressure washers, like any machine, can get knocked in transit and if you are unhappy with the item we are sure that the seller will replace your damaged item.
Also the Wolf pressure washer comes with a 6 metre high pressure hose which may be a little short for your liking. Please note that a 10 metre hose is available on Amazon but be very careful about which 10 metre hose you buy as some people have bought the wrong hose which doesn’t fit.
200 bar pressure is issued when the Wolf pressure washer is running at full power. Note that there are several settings so if you use a lower setting less power will be used.
The Wolf’s pressure range is ideal for tough domestic work such as preparing an external wall for painting or getting tough stains from garage floors or driveways.
8 Litres Per Minute Flow Rate
The flow rate of 8 litres per minute is very good and equates to 480 litres per hour.
This flow rate will ensure that there is not only plenty of water for cleaning but also for washing away removed dirt etc.
6.5HP 4 Stroke Engine
This size engine complements the Wolf pressure washer’s pressure and flow rate very well. There is lots of power to keep the pressure working at full power on the toughest jobs.
Petrol pressure washers tend to be louder than electric pressure washers and this is an issue that you may want to bear in mind.
Low Oil Level Shut Down
Just like your car engine the Wolf pressure washer engine needs to be lubricated with oil.
As a safety feature Wolf have installed a low oil level shut down mechanism which, as the name implies, stops the pressure washer from working when the oil level gets to low. Simply top up the oil level to recommence operation.
Detergent Suction Tube
For the best cleaning of cars, bikes and motor cycles etc you need to apply some detergent first. The detergent suction tube allows the Wolf pressure washer to pump out detergent before you attack the dirt with clean water.
Other uses for the detergent suction tube are for the cleaning of grime and grease stains on driveways and garage floors as well as for cleaning plastic furniture etc.
The heavy-duty lance comes with 4 quick fit nozzles for different types of sprays. The sprays are;
As can be gathered from the names the pencil spray is the toughest spray which narrows the water flow into a very small area. The Jet spray is a lighter spray for a larger area and the fan spray is softer still and it suitable for larger more delicate jobs.
The detergent spray allows you to spray detergent such as when cleaning cars and bikes etc.
As you can see there is plenty of versatility at play here.
All Terrain Wheels
Pneumatic wheels are found on more expensive pressure washers and allows the unit to move over rough terrain more easily than ordinary wheels.
While this Wolf pressure washer does not feature pneumatic wheels it is important to realise that the units 8 inch wheels are perfectly suitable for domestic or light commercial and industrial work.
Easy Set Up
The unit is very easy to set up and initial set up takes very little time especially by people who have no experience of putting together a petrol pressure washer.
We think that this Wolf pressure washer is great value as it gives you a professional model for a fraction of the price.
With a good mix of pressure and flow rate this pressure washer should be able to tackle all of your domestic jobs with ease. From washing cars to preparing external walls for painting this unit will do it all.
