Which Nilfisk Pressure washer for your car?
If you are looking at buying a pressure washer primarily for cleaning your car then you will want something that you can attach different fitments to allowing you to clean the paintwork, wheel, underside as well as being able to attach a foamer to your lance too.
If car washing is the main thing you will be looking at using it for then the entry level Nilfisk C110 4-5 PC Xtra Compact or the Nilfisk C120 6-6 PCAD pressure washer are the ones to check out. The entry level C110 has 110 bar pressure and a water flow of 440, it is a great all rounder and a great option away from the Karcher range, lightweight and easy to move, yet still sturdy and well built, and comes with a great selection of attachments as standard. The next model up has a bar pressure of 120 with the same water flow. The extra pressure makes it easier to remove dirt from your car giving your that extra power for more stubborn stains. This is useful for wheel and also if you plan to clean vans or caravans with it too.
There are a whole host of attachments that come with these too and which you can buy individually too for your needs. If you are looking at something that you can also use to clean your patio or driveway too, then the extra power is a must and the C110 just won’t cut it, you may want to look at the upper end of the Nilfisk range for a power washer with a bit more oomph behind it to make it a lot easier.
Which to buy for your patio?
When buying a power washer for cleaning your patio, slabs and brickwork pressure and water flow are very important. Water flow will speed up the time it takes to do the area and the higher the pressure the easier and quicker it is to remove the dirt, grim and stubborn stains. If you want to turn your tired looking slabs into something that looks like new then you want to look at the upper end of the Nilfisk range, the Nilfisk C130 1-6 X-Tra Pressure Washer has a 130 bar pressure with a water flow of 440, while the next model up, the Nilfisk E 140.3-9 X-TRA 2.1 packs 140 bar with an increased water flow of 500. This is perfect for quickly and easily washing your patio and drive and bringing them up like new. While having this extra pier for these tasks it can also be used to clean your car and patio furniture, just adjust the pressure down to ensure you don’t damage any paintwork.
The Nilfisk C130 1-6 X-Tra Pressure Washer is a small compact machine with a big kick, pumping out 440 litres per hour max water flow at 13o bar pressure it is great for cleaning your car, drive and patio. The Nilfisk E140 pressure washer aims at easing your washing tasks no matter what type of surface you are cleaning. It is also easy to use and does not require a lot of space for storage.
The Nilfisk PowerGrip
A new feature on Nilfisk pressure washers is the the power grip. On the base hand grip of the lance gun you will find an up and down button allowing you to easily adjust the pressure of the water right at your finger tips. Watch this video below to see it in action.
You can see it in action on a recent advert from Nilfisk in this video below.
Benefits of the Nilfisk PowerGrip
The power grip function isn’t new, however it is a new way of doing it. Being able to adjust the pressure of your pressure washer is a standard feature, however the Nilfisk PowerGrip makes it even easier. With is being on the handle of the gun itself it means you can quickly and easily adjust the pressure without having to stop, going back to the pressure washer itself or having to twist the lance as you do on the models.
There are 7 settings or levels should I say, from low to high you can adjust the pressure. This is useful when cleaning you car for example, you can lower the pressure to ensure you don’t damage the paint work, however you can also easily increase the pressure when doing your alloy wheels on your car. The setting can quickly be dropped down to clean you garden furniture and quickly adjust up to the maximum to remove a stain or dirt on the patio.
Being able to adjust this so easily helps you also save water, by easily being able to change the pressure up and down you are more likely to do so instead of just leaving it on a max setting where it will use most water.
