Nilfisk e145 or p150?

So I've asked the big fella for a new pressure washer for Christmas, I'm torn between the e145(£220) or the p150(£320). Am I going to regret not getting the p150? Should I buy the e145 and spend the extra 100 quid on a new gun instead?

It'll be solely used for my own car, about once a week. I'm current using my dads c120 out of necessity but would like to invest in my own machine.

Your opinions would be great

John.

I'm sure the e45 will be more than enough, at the end of the day I'll only be washing my own car once a week and the decking once year, but while the missus is paying for it?

The E145 is a great machine but if you really have the choice I would go for the 150. It's not a bad price (has been cheaper but that's the luck of the draw), I have yet to see a bad word said about one. If I wanted a washer, it would be my choice. The euro has affected the price some machines, even with deals available a lot are more costly than they used to be but the 150 has stayed pretty much the same and for £320 you get a lot of bang for your buck.

Would I need to change the hose and gun on the p150? Or the e145 for that matter? Are they proper rubber hoses?

Both superflex style, no change needed. I have superflex on my E140 (bought separate) and they are top quality.



See macca666 note on this thread. He also has the 145 so that's a good endorsement for that model too.

Thanks Shine

I've had mine now for a couple of year - I reckon though with how quick time passes it may be longer.

Hose is good and no issues with it. Only slight potential problem the last time i used it the other week it was pulsing slightly but im hoping it was a one off.

I chose the 145 as I couldn't justify the p150 price however tbh I'm pretty certain that personally I wouldn't have noticed the difference anyway. The 145 is plenty powerful for me and I like the hose reel and attachment storage meaning everythings neat when it's not innate.

I don't think you'll be disappointed with the 145 however as the big man is paying it's not you saving the money.

I'd suggest the 145 and a nice wax to make up the difference

Edit: just checked my old threads itll be coming up on 3 years at the turn of the year.

The hose on the 145 is a brilliant hose not a shiny stiff hose like the smaller models I can get right around my car without moving my washer no problem atol.

After a couple of days of arguing with myself I ordered the P150 last night
