Looking for some advice. Our driveway is in a bad state and need to jet wash the bricks and moss. I have read some reviews on Pressure Washers and for driveways it recommends a high pressure one but they are so expensive. Does anyone own one who can recommend if this would do the job or if it's too basic?

Not the basic one, that's what I've got and it's only really good for washing your car and basic stuff. We borrowed a more powerful one for our patio. Think it's the next version up and comes with a circular attachment to do driveways and patios.

This one you mean?

Just a bit expensive!

There is this one which has 120 pressure compared to the 110 in that basic one but still not sure if 120 will be enough. The K4 one has 130.

You can hire a powerful one from smiths equipment hire. 

Katcher are expensive, you can buy a pretty good one from screwfix for a lot less money with twice the flow . 

I borrowed someone K6 which was so powerful but broke it. Done the back garden and worked a charm but still got lots to do. I am worried about buying a new one that doesn't do the job.

This one is pretty good. We use it at work.

This seems like a decent one on Screwfix. 130 bar which is same as K4 but cheaper.

It's whether 130 is enough or need to be looking at the 160 bar pressure. They get too expensive though and might be overkill.

Both looked at the same one :)

Would that one clean dirty red brick paving and get rid of all the moss growing between the gaps?

It should do. It’s a slow job, some seem to think you can just spray it like a hosepipe and everything will come up. 
I've done the back garden and took ages. I was covered in mud as were the windows, fences and table and chairs. Drains got blocked because of the mud so had to get my hands in and under-estimated how many worms live down them.
There’s firms that will come and do it for you, if you’re worried the worms will attack. 👍
More worried about the neigbours convertible car!
Fuck the neighbours convertible 🤣

No, not that one, but I don't think they make it anymore looking at the models on display on B&Q. Not sure how old it is.

Looks more like this but more powerful:

The Karcher k090  1400 watt  I have had for thirteen years used every year on the rear patio 30x14ft and similar sized driveway has never let me down, obviously the more recent ones must be better but have to say for reliability I cannot fault the one I have.
By searching on Google, that is 100 bar pressure which is slightly conflicts what Steed and other reviews have said. That new basic one by Karcher is 110 pressure and plenty of advice saying not really fit for driveways. I guess it depends on the type of driveway. Mine is red brick and covered in moss!
You need a lot more pressure to shift moss. Just get the most powerful you can within your budget.

I am sure people find this riveting but this is what I've got to tackle. Long drive away as well as goes all the way down to back garden...

Just noticed your post for info on PW.I had a PW business in South Florida.MY advice is to rent a 3500 or better PW and a surface cleaner.Spray the surface with a dilute bleach solution.The result will be better.The bleach will have a residue very small mind you and when the sun hits it it will bleach even cleaner.Bleach smell goes away within hours and its not harmful to environment.Any kind of mold is not healthy so its a good thing to keep in check..

I got an industrial one from a family friend which they use on the farm. End result was fantastic but after this heavy downpour the kiln sand has gone everyone and doesn't look half as good now plus traipsing loose sand in the house all the time!

It was rewarding though but depressing knowing I will have to do it all again in two years.
