Yep, bought one today, very useful.

I also bought a power washer brush, again for cleaning the van (which I did today).

And, two 13A double sockets with 3.1A USB outlets. The high output USB power supply is relatively difficult to find, most are 2.1A combined which means slow charging of modern devices. These Aldi ones will charge a phone/tablet much faster.

I'm in need of a telescopic ladder (like the surveyors use) to access my planned roofbox - please shout if Aldi get some in :)

Have you tried Maplin ? They stock(ed) good ones and, with their closing down sale, they would be a real bargain.

I don't know about Karcher David.

I previously bought a rotary patio cleaner from Aldi, for my Vax power washer, on the principle that if it didn't fit I could return it.
That did fit, (and is very very good, I use it all the time, even for cleaning the MH roof), so I knew that the brush would too.

You could always take an extension piece from your Karcher and try it?

Not quite sure what is going on but I found a pillow at Aldi Online for £9.99 (before any p&p charges) but I wanted to feel it and drove to a store and assumed the price would be "similar". Picked one up and at checkout was charged £5.  Glad I didn't buy online!

Thanks for the reply 
For others if anybody wondering been out and bought one and it is a totally different fitting to the Karcher so a trip back again soon.
Pity because I was also thinking of the patio cleaner on offer next week.

Gah, sorry David, we should have swapped photos of the fittings before you made the trip.

Useful info for others though. up!

Funnily enough, that was the first place I looked but all the 'good' stuff is gone, they're just left with the unusual stuff that nobody wants shrugg

I could have sworn that I saw a telescopic ladder in Aldi just a few weeks back, because I was tempted at the time.

EDIT: Here you go...

I decided to take the brush back today but as you do had a look around. Had a look at the Patio cleaner and struck lucky, in the box are two adapters and one is the fitting for the Karcher I discovered when I got it home, as a added bonus the patio cleaner has two extension rods which also fit the brush so I will be able to reach the top of the van, result for a change content

I was rooting around in the garage for something yesterday, and rediscovered the original patio cleaner head that came with our Vax washer.

It's worth noting that the original is useless, as it has no height/pressure adjustment, and continually flips up and soaks everything.
The Aldi patio head is a different matter, it sits flat as it's heavy enough to resist the pressure jets, and it can be adjusted for height, which means that I can safely use it on the new van roof.

As you mentioned, the extension rods are useful and pretty sturdy, with screw fittings to make the joints rigid so that you can apply some pressure without breaking the plastic bayonet connectors.

up!

Does anyone else think that they look quite Charlie Chaplinesque scary?

(I'm the person that you'll see staring obsessively at the structural nuts 'n' bolts when on a chair lift or or roller coaster etc).

They seem to work quite well but what surprised us (when Aldi had them) was how heavy they were. There was no published weight as far as we could see.

According to the Lidl leaflet the weight of their telescopic ladder is 11.5kgs, not bad if you say it quick biggrin
