Best Pressure Washer for Under £100

Hi Guys,

Ive now had 2 karchers that have both broken on me and the part to fix it is the same price as the whole machine with all accessories. So im in the hunt for a new pressure washer.

Im not sure if im wanting another Karcher or maybe a Nilfisk. So hoping to get some feedback and opinions on those of you who have had good value for money on a pressure washer under £100.

Thanks

Mark

I don't think you can go wrong with a Nilfisk.

Much depends on the design of the pump, and whether it has an induction motor of the conventional brush type. For heavy duty, and long sustained use, you need an alloy pump and induction motor type. Most of the newer industrial washers are equipped with this.

The larger more powerful units also tend to kick out more water volume and at higher pressures, which is where the added cleaning poke comes from.

so if i was going to go for the Nilfix, there are 2 version in my price range. the £69.99 one has only 110 pressure and the £99.99 has 120 pressure. apart from this the only other difference i can see in the spec is that the hose is 1m longer.

Is there any other reason it is worth paying and additionaly £30 just for these 2 improvements?

thanks

For the lower range Nilfisk/Karcher, they are all air cooled and pump are not really powerful.
I'll either up my budget or get those OEM one (and just keep replacing whenever it break)

I have pre ordered one from Aldi

https://www.aldi.co.uk/workzone-2-2k...94313120367000

My karcher packed up after 7 years this week. I thought I would give this a try as specs look good and you get 3 years warranty.
