What additional functions will a fitted pressure washer

enable you to perform? A pressure washer attachment allows the operator to carry out tasks such as graffiti removal and cleaning road signs and street furniture. It is also an excellent solution for any spillages that may occur, creating a public slip risk. The pressure washer also allows the operator to keep their own vehicle clean and working to full efficiency.

What is a wander hose and why would one be specified?

A wander hose is a remote vacuum tube which allows the operator to use the machine’s suction power in tight areas that even a compact sweeper cannot access. This attachment should be specified where the operator has lots of awkward areas to clean or if they need to collect leaves or debris from under street furniture, parked cars or in planted areas.

The Nilfisk design enables the four metre hose to be rolled up inside the hopper when unused. It is powerful enough to unblock sewers and empty rubbish bins in an instant.

This type of machine would be used to remove spillages or soiling from any paved or concreted areas. It is particularly useful in town centres where outdoor cafes are very much in vogue. The Nilfisk City Ranger 3500 features independent suspension that maintains constant ground pressure on the squeegee, following the ground perfectly.

The key benefit is that machinery has higher utilisation rates, this means that machines are used every day for a variety of tasks rather than a company having to have multiple machines that may “In these times of

only get used for a couple of weeks a year. This considerably reduces the capital investment required and the associated maintenance costs.


What additional functions can be performed from

specifying attachments? This list is long and varied, but the functions include ‘winter maintenance tasks’, such as snow clearance, salt spreading and brine spraying. Or ‘green tasks’ which vary from grass cutting and chemical free weed removal to trimming of a hedge. Other available attachments can scrub and dry the street, pressure wash street furniture and even water flower beds.

The Nilfisk Park Ranger 2150 for example, is a lightweight machine that has an all-season range of over 15 attachments including suction sweeping. It is a four-wheel drive,

Is it really as easy as bolting on a rotary mower

attachment? Where’s the catch? It’s even easier than that! Most attachments can be fitted without the use of tools; it just requires the pulling of a lever to connect hydraulics and electrical connectors. Then away you go, complete your job, change attachments and carry out yet another task!
