|Setup was actually relatively straightforward in my opinion. The packaging is odd though. There was a bag with just two screws in, and another bag with the handle and all the other screws. The bag with two screws also had a bit of broken plastic in, which was concerning. However, it doesn't appear to belong to any of the parts to my pressure washer. Not that I've found yet anyway.
To be fair, the instructions aren't great. The pictures first, then the English instructions 5 pages later. Although marrying the instructions to the pictures seems like a futile exercise. Basically, push the wheels all the way in and screw them in. Handle on the top, then screw that in. The pressure washer "holster" on the front... Screw that in. The base piece uses two long plastic "dowels". As far as I can tell, you position the base then push them in at the bottom at a 45 degree-ish angle. Getting the tube from the back, through the gap took a few tries to get right (ie without leaving it "bent" at the back).
All this said, I can't help but feel they could have done most, if not all of this in the factory and used a slightly bigger box!
I've subsequently realised that the bottle mixer unit is a bit of a mis-sell. I was under the impression that it would mix the soap in with the patio/brick cleaner as I used it. WRONG! You are supposed to apply the patio cleaner using the "multi" nozzle tool first, then use the patio/brick cleaning tool afterwards. That's a lot of faffage. I've ended up not bothering with the cleaner.
But the main power nozzle really packs a punch. I'm actually quite pleased it doesn't pack any more, as I was wondering at times if it would lift the stones off of the patio! I'm pleased to say it didn't, but very quickly swept sand into the new gaps to avoid any sinking issues (I hope!).
Overall I'm pleased with it. It is much more powerful than the K2 I had before, meaning I can hold the nozzle further back, cleaning more surface area... That equals a quicker job!
Yeah, I'd say buy it!
