Nilfisk C110

Looking at getting a C110 although i wanted to check on one feature before i did so i hope someone knows.

Will the c110 be ok running from a water butt ? I hear the c120 will pump/pull water from a butt but ive not read the same about the c110 which is more inline with my budget.

thanks

Maybe you just had a bad batch. I've had one for years and it's been great.(C110)
Saying that, I gave that to my parents and I bought another one in Jan and the lance packed up a couple of weeks ago. Amazon was great though and sent me a replacement new one.
No complaints from me and will keep using Nilfisk!

I've had 3 of these nilfisk things (replaced due to faults) and they don't last...powerful little things but not robust,wheels snap off,rubber 'o' rings often split and stop/start motor has a mind of its own on all of them.
