Nilfisk ALTO Patio Plus Cleaner Attachment
Nilfisk patio cleaner
Disappointingly this item does not have a long enough arm on it so using it to clean a patio will give lots of back pain. Nilfisk do not seem to provide an extension lance that would make this product much more useful. Karcher do provide extension arms for their products and therefore score more highly for user-friendliness. It's a shame Nilfisk cannot get their act together because the washer itself and drain cleaner work well.

I have given minimum ratings and not recommended because so far I have not been able to use it! I wish I could try mine out.
This unit is NOT directly compatible with older Alto / Kew pressure washers. The instruction sheet gives the part numbers for two adapter extensions and after some difficulty I managed to track the one I need down on the Nilfisk Alto website. So far all questions I have asked them about it remain unanswered (like confirming that it will do the job, as it costs Â£26!).
I am going to persist as I need a cleaner and do not want to have to buy a completely new pressure washer, although the Â£76 I will by then have spent would take me a long way towards one!

Get extra Fuses
This accessory for the Nilfisk Alto 150 pressure washer never worked as the pressure washer kept fusing my electric circuit. I used up 6 13 amp fuses before accepting defeat.
Screwfix supplied another pressure washer (same model) at my request but it also fused several times. I contacted the manufacturer and asked were they aware of the fusing problem and some other queries. They answered the other queries and made no comment on the fuse problem. They seemed disinterested in customer direct contact.
Screwfix were exemplary in their reaction to these problems accepting the goods ack immediately returning my money and paying for all carriage costs and all done in very timely manner
