Nilfisk died

My trusty Nilfisk C110 has passed away this afternoon after over 4 years service. Went quietly when I had finished snow foaming.

On the hunt for a new one. Borrowed a neighbours Centinal C120. I enjoyed the extra power it gave.

Have seen this for sale

Anyone else got one or have experience?

Wasn't aware the connectors had changed in length.

Only use that nozzle for the patio anyway

I bought that one from Amazon over Christmas . I have only used it twice but it is easy to control the pressure and I think it's a good pressure washer. Does everything I want it to.

I did get the car washing nozzle which is good for a spray.

The only pain is the hose reel - you can't use it without detaching the hose from the machine which is annoying.

I wasn't sure if the powergrip was worth the extra for what's basically the same machine

i have the power grip and it is good to be able to turn the flow and pressure down for certain applications but for the car i keep it at max.

if the price is quite a lot more i personally wouldn't bother with the powergrip

I may be wrong but I’m not sure if the power grip has a slightly higher flow rate too.
