- Lower prices on offer when compared to the K4/K5/K7
- The T150 is capable of cleaning up to 5 times faster than the standard vario lance
- You get the dirt-blaster lance which provides 80% more cleaning power compared to conventional high pressure lances

- 400W less power than the K4 and 700W less power than the K5
- Flow rate is 80 litres per hour less than the K4 and 140 litres per hour less than the K5
- Hose length is 4m less than the K5 and 2m less than the K4
- Coverage area is slower on average, example 10m² less than the K4 per hour and 20m² less than the K5 per hour so it will take you twice as long than the K5 to complete larger areas.
- Overall, we found that this pressure washer although slower and not as powerful as the K4/K5, we still found it very easy to work with and performed better than expected and the results were excellent.
