Water might not seem all that tough a substance while you’re luxuriating in the bath, but at high enough pressures a jet of water will cut clean through wood, rubber or even metal. It shouldn’t therefore be a surprise that Bosch’s commercial grade high-pressure washers offer a quick and convenient way of tackling even the toughest cleaning tasks almost effortlessly, including everything from building exteriors and large outdoor areas to heavy duty industrial equipment and vehicles. What’s more, with the GHP 5-13 C’s compact, low weight design it offers portability and convenience to match its impressive cleaning power, making it perfect for use on busy construction sites and when cleaning in public spaces.
This is all due to the GHP 5-13 C’s compact yet hardworking 2300W electric motor, which as well as being pleasingly efficient offers one of the best power-to-weight ratios in the business. As such this mighty little cold water pressure washer is able to achieve a maximum flow rate of up to 520 litres per hour at an operating pressure of 130 bar, all while weighing an impressively miniscule 17kg. With a sturdy carry handle also incorporated into the design this means that it is always easy to get the GHP 5-13 C to where it is needed.
The fun and frolics don’t stop there though, as the GHP 5-13 C is also outstandingly versatile. This is to a large extent due to its variable pressure system, designed to enable quick adaptation to the task at hand, but a handy self-intake function further optimises flexibility by allowing you to pump water from buckets or storage tanks when a mains water supply is not available. Supplied as standard with an 8m high-pressure hose, the GHP 5-13 C also comes complete with variably adjustable fan spray lance made from durable stainless steel and a handheld spray gun, both of which are perfect for tough commercial cleaning jobs and heavy duty professional use.
This, then, is a serious piece of kit, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t also brilliantly user-friendly. Auto-stop technology, for example, works to boost efficiency and reduce noise output by automatically stopping the motor and pump when the trigger is released. The aforementioned portability and ease of transportation also help the GHP 5-13 C score highly in terms of convenience but it has also been designed for ease of maintenance, with all components easily accessible for routine servicing. Given the robust build of this tough machine, however, it will happily keep running for years with only minimal attention, with a crankshaft-driven brass pump featuring ceramic-coated pistons and an in-built water filter each working to ensure exceptional consistency of performance over time.
