Hi all!

So summer is here and I need a pressure washer and can spend around £200. I've heard Nilfisk uses metal pumps and in this price range maybe theyre better than Kärcher?

Are there any other things I need for snow foaming and other valuable car things?

Thanks!

Nilfisk are great, you will also need a proper foam lance (not the bottle which comes with the washer), also a dedicated snow foam.

Not sure what suppliers you have in Sweden.

I've got a Karcher had it a few years and it's been brilliant. The majority buy and rate Nilfisk so to me either or. Your budget will get you a decent PW snowfoam lance and a leave you with change to spend on other bits. :cool:

I have the basic model C110 & I have had it over 4 years & never had a problem. Only thing I have changed/upgraded is the standard hose. I now have a 10m commercial grade one. When mine goes bang I will probably just buy the same one again as it has been faultless.

I would highly recommend Nilfisk too. Excellent build quality and the pumps are aluminium compared to the plastic ones of say, Karcher.

Only reason I know this is because I actually had a Nilfisk repair guy have a look at mine because it was making a strange noise but he said it was completely normal because of the aluminium pumps and that they are some of the most reliable on the market.

Wouldn't get anything else now unless I go pro...then I'll be getting a Kranzle lol

Cheers Shaun and Wayne. (by the way I would love one of you guys to give my car a detail but you both are too far away for me to travel!):(

Entry level Nilfisk here, think it's the C110 and I'm chuffed with it so any mid priced one should be bang on.
