Looking to buy my first pressure washer,do i really need a top end one,as all i'll need it for is cleaning paving slabs and block paving?
Are the cheapos up to it?
Any recommendations appreciated....

What's the chances of one getting a 2 year old car oil spill out of a tarmac drive?... or would it at least tidy it up a bit?

It all depends what you use it for. If it is for removing weeds ,I use one that is 120 bar pressure and the weeds have no chance on jet.
