Hello there I was wondering if you's could help me out I want a water blaster to wash my car , mainly under the tyres and wheels. I was looking at the Gerni G100.2 Water Blaster that's in super cheap auto for 129 dollars. Would this be powerfull enough to wash my car with I clean alot of cars and some times trucks.

Here you go


The 100.2 is the new upgraded version, replacing the previous 100.1 model. The 100.2 is a simple high pressure cleaner easy to handle
This high pressure washer is for everyone who takes pleasure in a basic job well done. The low weight makes it easy to handle and it is just as easy to stow away. For all types of low frequency cleaning tasks.

The CLASSIC 100.2 is for typical domestic cleaning tasks like cleaning of flagstones, stairways, vehicles with a moderate use. Furthermore, when you buy a 100.2, it is almost ready for use - you only have to click on the nozzle storage.

If you are going to be using quite regularly i would not recommend it, i used to work there and i have seen the equivalent in the Karcher range come back from people using them to wash cars at small car lot's, long run time while using with trucks and other equipment etc and they simply are not built with that sort of duty cycle in mind. Tho you typically wouldn't have any issues getting a replacement thru Super Cheap Auto. You need to check the duty cycle vs your expected run time. But to answer your question, in my experience it would be fine for a car, may not be powerful enough to remove stubborn road grime from a truck (depending on size of truck). Hope this helps

thank for for your reply mate I don't want to use it for long just enough to do where under where the tyres are and under the car so I wont be using it for very long.

thank you for your reply how ever I don't often believe what the manufacturer tells me as they want to sell there product.  I am more after the opinion of someone that has used the product and will give me an unbiased opinion.
