How much normally in other places? Worth punt at this price??
All Pressure Washer Discounts, Offers and Sale - April 2019
Yep these have the aluminium pump unlike the yellow models that have plastic ones and crack when they freeze in winter.
Price matching Argos by the looks. Nilfisk C125 - Argos
Brilliant machines. Far better than those yellow plastic ones.
You're right. Picture changed. Thanks
Photo is quite misleading, as that is of a K3 home, which has extra kit, which this does not have.
Thank you for posting I’ve been looking for a pressure washer for days now and this one was one of my contenders on Amazon and thus is cheaper. Heat from me x
Nice find, looks good.
no they didn't honor it , just an excuse
Out of stock :-(
Well the email says out of stock so they must of honoured it
MerkedDown has theirs coming as they have had a dispatch email (shock)
It looks like they probably only had 1 in stock. I just got refunded.
You are right, out of stock now. Not that I was planning to buy it anyways. (lol)
And you can't add it to the basket. So it's sold out as the message says.
There are still 6 left. I didn’t buy because could not justify spending £60 on this when Lidl Park side Pressure Washer is also for £60 in their weekly deals.
Bought this at £59 without the patio cleaner in January. Took it out of box today for first time and was doing a great job until a hole blew in the main nikfisk hose! Fair play to amazon, one phone call and a replacement on way. Don’t think it’s a general issue as I have tried to google it.
I got the 120bar version last week. Build and quality is very good and the power for washing a car is perfect. But I felt it was underpowered to easily clean my block paving. Even when held a couple of inches from the ground, the power is lacking to properly clean. Otherwise it's a good, well made product
I got this same set from Amazon for 54.99,although it's been about 9 months. It does hover around 54.99-59.99 on amazon quite regularly! This is not a good price.
Definitely have to agree with the rest. Patio cleaner is not good at all. If you can pick this up without the patio cleaner for less, it's worth the saving.
It has a bar inside that spins, creating a 'swirl' action. It looked good when I did my york stones...until they dried! and I was left with a light swirl pattern of dirt across all of them, so had to do them all again without the attachment. Nilfisk are a great make. I have had the C130 for over 5 years, and never had any problems. Advise you drain it thoroughly, or keep it inside during winter. If the water inside it freezes, it can expand and split the cylinder.
The K2 model is only worth this price when new.
Expired now, there was an extra discount before. The sale prices come and go quite regular so worth to checking back for anyone interested.
Where did the £41.99 come from? Link clearly shows £99.99
if your lucky thats not guaranteed, what ones been sent back and the pumps failed or plastics are scuffed up? sometimes things get abused anyway i leave it there im not going to keep going in circles, people can make the own minds up.
Often, refurb means previously sold and returned unused. Retailers cannot resell that same item as new, hence they’re sold as refurb. So far, your maths is correct. However at the price I paid for it, and assuming it isn’t going to break soon, it’s already better value than a new one in my opinion
I bought this from Lidl back in February for £49.99 complete with hose storage.
I got a proper snow foam lance from Ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Heavy-Duty-Lidl-Parkside-Pressure-Washer-Snow-Foam-Lance-With-1L-Bottle/231494670129?epid=1788719747&hash=item35e6285731:g:mMwAAOSwqu9U9HOC
Thanks @CNCboss ive been researching around and it looks like people on some car detailing forums are suggesting Lidl products should be compatible with Lavor! Looks like a no brainer with the 3yr Warranty on this
Looks like the foam gun that comes with it has adjustable spray pattern and flow anyway. If not, the fittings look like Lavor to me, or maybe Bosch.
I wonder if you can get a snow foam lance attachment that will fit this pressure washer. Its the only thing that usually keeps me sticking to Karcher or Nilfisk
Great deal, thanks OP, reserved (y)
Is that 70bar of working pressure? If so only ever good for cleaning dirt off your shoes.
Great find Red N White. Just what we were looking for, so HEAT FROM us. A pretty good deal, thanks for posting. And a Happy Easter! <3
Homebase do the same with Qualcast. This has a 3 year guarantee which is pretty good. I know people who have had no end of trouble with Karcher washers and switched to other brands.
Just so people are aware Argos buy this brand name and use it to brand products they manufacture themselves. Similar to what companies like Polaroid do with TVs. I’ve just got a lawnmower and strimmer made by S&J - it’s fine but I’d argue not up to the quality of their garden tools. Manual says it’s manufactured by Argos.
Thanks :) I did paint about 2 inches down inside the pots too, i still need to concrete the poles in then put some stones on top so hopefully get a picture when it’s done. I got my lights from Ikea! Big white bulb ones which are actually long enough to fit the length of my decking - found it almost impossible to find lights with more than just 10 on lol
Bargain! Thanks for letting us know your tips and the pictures - love to see "real" pictures. Great tip about the lights too - I will be on the lookout for some lights next as my little boy decided our frog solar lights wanted to be "live" in the water feature thing and now has croaked it!
Great post @emribena ! I’ve spent the past weekend in the garden staining deck boards for another planter and I’ve even painted some terracotta pots. Just wanted to share the pots as they are my biggest bargain... I went to b&m with a garden centre and found some large 38cm terra cotta pots for £3.49 (not a sale price). I bought some Cuprinol ducks back paint in silver copse from b&q for £10 (cheapest price for 5L when I purchased). 3 coats of paint to make sure it had a nice coverage and it’s come out amazing. I’m using the pots to stick wooden poles in to attach my outdoor string lights to so I can move them around the decking if I need to. Compared to metal or even painted pots in the same shades they were roughly £20 a pot, I spent less and still have 3/4 of the paint left for my other garden projects :)
Great post ! Thank you
Iron sulphate from wilko. Dissolve in Luke warm water and apply at 5g per sqm. Apply now. Weedol lawn for weed killer. Apply in May.
It is a bit noisy but really powerfull makes the electric ones seem Rubbish.
Don’t need mains water.. it will draw it from a barrel
Nice. Is it really noisy ?
Try the Lidl one i have one,Been brilliant for 2 years.
So noisy. Paid £150 for mine , first one was faulty. Second one is waiting to be picked up as that has an intermittent fault now. Will probably try the Champion one from Costco for £300 next :D
that's what I thought (y) but another bit packed up
I bought a Nilfisk 110 with Patio cleaner from Amazon Warehouse last week when it was on offer, £44.73. Put it all together and turned it on, water flowed through but motor didn't work so no pressure. Sending it back - super disappointed!!
Try and find a pressure washer with a cast metal pump housing and not the plastic type pump housing that the low end Karcher's K2's have.
No Nilfisk have great deals either at Amazon or their outlet.
at least if it's programmed to go wrong within the warranty you can keep getting new ones (y)
Sorry for silly question but which type of pressure washer people in YouTube videos use to make driveways look like new?
It's now gone up to over £340 but still available on the other site skdotcom posted.
Thanks for info, much appreciated
rubber hose on these metal snap adapters at the end
I believe the one in the new tv advert is the ‘Full control plus’ model. I’ve not seen that model anywhere yet, but the difference appears to be push buttons on the lance to adjust the pressure, whereas on this version you have to twist the nozzle to vary the pressure, and then the change shows in the LED display.
Depends on what models they were, anything less than this model (So K1/K2) have plastic impellers and pumps and are notoriously prone to the issues you mention. K4 and above are brass pumps etc and much higher quality.
Thanks @DavidMoses Is this the one currently in TV ads where the chap reveals his house with the machine?
My Bosch died recently after 3.5 years and about 10 uses. Kept indoors so avoided frost and the elements. Considering a Wilks-USA based on Amazon reviews
I too have had three Karchers die on me over the years. Now on a Bosch washer which is over three years old
People usually prefer Nilfisk as they have a cast metal pump housings and the Karcher's have a plastic pump housing unless you buy the higher specification Karcher's. I have personally found Nilfisk's more reliable and better built than Karcher's.
Not much to choose between this and the nilfisk. People tend to prefer either Nilfisk or Karcher, depending on what they currently have. Both have 2 year warranty. This has a 4m hose, nilfisk is 5m.
Good price for this version. Don't know why it's not received more heat. (confused)
These are normally about £100 with the Patio adaptor. Just bought one and it is perfectly adequate for home stuff.
My question as well. Which is better And if warranty would be different?
Good price. Definitely get a bigger battery than the 2A one it lasts about 25 mins with continuous use. Is it worth it??? Depends what you want it for, so I have one that i use to clean my road bike with, it's not too powerful that it would damage bearings as there is a H/L button that is for High or Low pressure, the fact its battery operated means i can go anywhere and clean the bike before it goes in the back of my car. Would be excellent if i had a mountain bike, as generally i finish my rides where i start them. As for my car from the main water there's enough power to remove dirt and wet the car prior to washing with a mitt. So for me its ideal but if you want to clean patios/stubborn stains where there's no paint or bearings to damage get a proper pressure washer. If you want a really portable unit to give a quick wash to something and yes as it says you really can use a 500ml bottle of water (it wont last long though) to clean things then its worth it.
So on a scale of 1 to 10 would you recommend buying one
Agree with TeamMCS Absolutely zero replacement for a pressure washer. It serves a purpose - a good portable water hose when no power or water hose. But its not brilliant. I have one.
I own one, if you need something mobile it's acceptable. It's zero replacement for a real pressure washer. There's quite a good bosh self priming pressure washer that uses mains that's worth looking into as that has 'big boy' pressure. Let me know if you have any questions
Bought mine a month ago. The box was tidily taped around the top and all the bits inside were in polythene bags as expected. No signs whatever of previous use. Nothing to worry about I'd say.
Just recieved mine does anyone have cellotape around the top of the box feel like my new condition isn't new.
Ok ill keep 110
Not much in it. 10 bar and a few more litres per min. You wont notice the difference.
Use the 120 to clean my car and ok there cars, certainly better than the vax I had previously, pressure doesn't seem as good as the vax but it's still a capable machine. I like all the push fit and twist accessories and obviously the metal pumps are a massive plus over the competition
I bought and used tonight The hose is short for getting around my car. If you have an aygo it might be ok. The different settings work well. Much lighter than my 620m karcher. Extension hoses are £35 for official 6m one
Sorry accidentally press the -
Had one of these about 12 years, patio cleaner is a god send It is powerful enough for the money
Its decent, but I wish I'd paid a bit more for something more powerful.
That's different, this is the correct one. https://www.screwfix.com/p/karcher-full-control-k2-home-110bar-pressure-washer-1-4kw-240v/7105t
