Kranzle or Nilfisk?

Think I have finally narrowed my search for a new pressure washer down to either the Kranzle 1050 tst or the Nilfisk p150 Which one would you guys go for?

Ive just got myself a Kranzle K10/122TS and it is the definition of build quality.

Yeah that's what I'm thinking. The Nilfisk is more powerful and better flow rate but the Kranzle is probably gonna be more reliable and last longer.

I too went with the Kranzle, build quality alone sold it for me... Awesome bit of kit.

I've had a Nilfisk E150 for 10 months and the start/stop valve has failed twice, I'm going to try and get my money back this time rather than get it repaired.

Took delivery last week of the Kranzle 1152TST and it's a totally different animal in build quality and features, only used it once as yet but it certainly feels like its going to last, you pay for it though.

Is there much benefit of the 1152 over the 1050? I will only be using it once a week to clean 2 cars!

K10

I was in the same position as you. In the end, having spoken to Qwasher I decided to get the K10. It a beast of a machine and I'm glad I spent the extra money on it. The build quality on the kranzle is fantastic and it will last.

Taking it into account I've only had it for a week and used it once the 1152 pumps out 10ltrs a minute and the 1050 7.5ltrs a minute, the 1152 is rated as professional over the 1050 as domestic not that that would make a difference for two cars a week.

Then theres the price an extra £200 for the 1152.

Either machine will be great but bare in mind to get the most out of them you are going to want to add a short trigger/lance/quick connect set up as the stock Kranzle trigger/lances aren't a lot of use for car washing in my opinion.

Qwashers will sell the machines with a custom trigger/lance set up etc

I'm awaiting arrival today of a Nilfisk Poseidon 2-25XT. This is a 140bar 10L/minute Nilfisk commercial model, now branded MC-2C, with a 15 metre steel wire and rubber hose on a reel. £270 'Used-Like New' on Amazon Warehouse.

Half the price of a Kranzle - I'll see how I get on with it.

I was tempted by this too mate, be interested to see how you get on.
I've gone through three Nilfisks though, that was the only thing stopping me getting another! Granted they were the c series, compared to the heavy duty beast here but still didn't give me much confidence in the brand.
Like I said though, be interested to see how you get on with it
