Cleaning has never really been my strong suit and whenever I have to carry out any cleaning chore, it's always with the greatest reluctance. I can trace this back to when I was a teenager and had the responsibility of cleaning various places both inside and outside the house. Oh, I was also responsible for cleaning the cars and the annoying part was that these chores were all done with my hands, a bucket of water, a brush and detergents. See, my parents were old fashioned and didn't believe in “spoiling” me. Well, I just moved to a new place in the country and of course, one of the first things I got after settling down was the Nilfisk C110 3-5 X-Tra pressure washer. I must confess that it surpassed my expectations but I'll try to capture the essentials here.

Powerful Pressure Washer

The Nilfisk C110 3-5 X-Tra is one beast that makes cleaning tasks very easy. I must warn you that if you're not careful, this machine would probably swing you around a bit the first time you use it. Okay, that's an exaggeration but you get the idea. This pressure washer comes equipped with a 1400 watt motor that powers the aluminum pump that gives out 110 bar max pressure. If you are familiar with pressure equipments, you'll know that this is no mean feature. In addition to this, the C110 3-5 X-Tra also gives a maximum flow of 400 litres per hour, enough to get a lot of cleaning tasks done in and around the house.

Easy To Use, Transport and Store

This is another great feature of the Nilfisk C110 3-5 X-Tra pressure washer. You don't have to be a genius to use this machine. In fact, you don't even have to be tech or gadget savvy because it comes with a detailed and easily understood instruction manual. The pressure washer also has an automatic stop and start function, extending the pump life. Its weight also contributes to the user-friendliness because this baby weighs just 5.5 kg, making it handy enough when cleaning. In addition to this, moving the machine around is no problem at all since it comes equipped with a trolley that can be wheeled around. Its compactness also means that storage shouldn't be a problem since it takes up just a little space and finding a storage space should be a breeze.

Makes Cleaning Fast and Easy

The Nilfisk C110 3-5 X-Tra pressure washer comes with other excellent features guaranteed to make cleaning tasks easier. It has 2 different types of nozzles to tackle any kind of domestic cleaning task around the home: the high power and vario power speed nozzles that can be interchanged to suit whatever task you are carrying out. It also has a chemical dosing bottle equipped with a foam applicator.

Other Features

· Hose and Cable Length:The cable length and the hose length are 5 meters each, giving sufficient reach for cleaning tasks without being unwieldy.

· Onboard Accessory Storage:This feature keeps all the accessories such as the nozzles and others neatly organized and out of the way so that there's no danger of tripping over or being hampered by them.

· Click and Clean: The Click and Clean system makes it easy to change and use the nozzles.


There's really no drawback to this pressure washer except for something I noticed with the hose. If you are not careful when applying the high pressure hose, you'll end up cross-threading and damaging it. So before attaching the hose onto the washer, you should first align the threads correctly by applying gentle pressure and then twisting the collar anticlockwise till the threads fit inside the alignment. Once the threads drop inside the alignment you can tighten the hose.


Considering the features of the Nilfisk C110 3-5 X-Tra pressure washer based on the points discussed above, it's easy to understand why it comes highly recommended. It is handy, easy to use, robust, does a good job and relatively cheap when compared to others in its's also the number 2 product in the category of pressure washers sold online. You won't go wrong with this machine.
