Nilfisk is one of our favourite pressure washer brands which is available in the UK. The Nilfisk Poseidon 3-26 XT is one of the largest pressure washers in the Nilfisk range.
Nilfisk always try to make their products as good as possible and in the case of pressure washers they fit almost all of their washers with metal pumps. Typically pressure washer companies try to save money by fitting their pressure washers with cheaper parts such as plastic pumps. With Nilfisk you can expect quality.
The Poseidon 3-26 XT is a fairly strong pressure washer suitable for heavy-duty domestic work or light commercial work.
The Nilfisk Poseidon 3-26XT is roughly equivalent to the Karcher K7.
While the Nilfisk’s wattage is slightly larger than the Karcher K7 (3000w vs 2800w) the water flow is slightly lower (570l p/h vs 600l p/h).

The Nilfisk Poseidon 3-26 XT pressure washer is ideal for those looking for a powerful domestic or light commercial electric pressure washer.
Domestic tasks could include getting rid of heavy stains on driveways, patios and garages as well as eliminating graffiti from walls. Light commercial jobs could include washing buildings, outhouses, outside areas, tractors and other farm machinery etc.
A great benefit for commercial and agricultural work is the 15m high pressure hose which allows for greater reach than that of domestic pressure washers.
The Poseidon 3-26 XT is too strong for lighter domestic work such as washing garden furniture or bicycles. In fact a great tip is that when using the 3-26 XT for domestic purposes hold the nozzle at least 3 feet away from the surface being cleaned as the spray can be very powerful.
Another benefit, and a great sign of quality, is the brass pump which has a longer life than plastic pumps which tend to crack and split more often.
The pistons are made of stainless steel which, again, give a longer life than pistons made of lesser materials.
The current price is in line with smaller commercial / large domestic pressure washers. You are paying for the reliability of a brass pump, the stainless steel pistons, the numerous features and a great brand name which is known for quality.
In fact Nilfisk has many outlets around the country where you can bring your pressure washer for a service or repair if so needed.

If you are looking for a powerful domestic or light industrial pressure washer the Poseidon 3-26 XT will do the job without any problems. The Nilfisk name guarantees that.
The only slight negative of this pressure washer is that it is a cold water pressure washer which wouldn’t be as effective as more expensive hot water pressure washers.
The Nilfisk Poseidon 3-26 XT is a popular pressure washer and many positive reviews are left all over the web. This particular pressure washer is rather new on Amazon however we are sure that many reviews will be left over time.
