Nilfisk Underchassis Nozzle

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for British winters and great value at 14, 12 Jan 2012
If you like to wash the salt and mud from your wheelarches and underbody then this is a great addition to your Nilfisk washer. It is not quite as versatile as the Underchassis Lance, but it is a lot cheaper at only 14 . It is also a little more aggressive than the Underchassis Lance spray pattern and so should do a more thorough job on stubborn patches.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for washing the car - save your back, 12 Jan 2012
This review is from: Nilfisk Auto Brush (DIY & Tools)
If it is the same one as comes with the Auto Extra Kit this is a large brush with many soft bristles and it has a central spray jet, and so is very good at cleaning vehicles without damage to the paintwork. It is quite unlike the standard brush supplied with the washers. Don't be fooled into thinking that you can clean a car just using spray jets. You will need to use a soft hand mitten or a brush such as this. I use both, with the brush for below the centre line to save bending over.

The only downside is that some Nilfisk Auto Brushes have the plastic "consumer" grade Click & Clean fitting rather than the sturdier bayonet fitting, and so have to be used on the end of the Extension Lance. On the basis that this one has the bayonet fitting I would give it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value and a useful addition to the available accessories, 12 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Firstly, you need to be aware that Kew Alto/Nilfisk pressure washer accessories have two types of fitting, a sturdy bayonet fitting with O-ring ie "professional grade" , and a cheaper plastic fitting without any O-ring known as Click & Clean ie "consumer grade". Accessories are made with either fitting, and are supplied with an adapter to convert one to the other as appropriate.

The Underchassis Lance is a "professional" quality item with a brass bayonet fitting, and represents excellent value. It is designed for use on vehicles, and so has a spray pattern which will not damage the underseal or paintwork. It is ideal for removing salt and mud from the wheelarches and underbody, or reaching the sides and/or roof of taller vehicles. It is also ideal for cleaning building gutters.

The Gun and Extension Lance supplied with consumer grade "Compact" Nilfisk Pressure washers, such as C120.3, C120.5 and C125.3, are a mixture of the two fittings. The gun ends with a female bayonet fitting, so that any "professional" grade accessories can be directly attached. The extension lance has a male bayonet to fit the gun but ends with a female Click & Clean fitting, to accept all the "consumer" grade accessories.

The Underchassis Lance bayonet fits directly into the gun, and is convenient to use in this configuration. You need 2 hands and the lance can be twisted to the desired angle with the forward hand as you work. However, in this configuration it is the same length as the Click & Clean Underchassis Nozzle when fitted into the extension lance. The Underchassis Nozzle can be used in much the same way as the Underchassis Lance, and seems to have a slightly more aggressive spray pattern, so why would you need both?

Well, some consumer accessory kits, notably the Water Suction Kit and Patio Cleaner Plus, come with an adapter with female bayonet and male Click & Clean. This can work both ways. Using this adapter, the Underchassis Lance can be fitted on the end of the Extension Lance to provide an extra long reach, which can sometimes be very useful.

I have seen the comments about lack of aggressive cleaning power, but if you really want to remove the underseal from your vehicle with a powerful spray jet, then you need the right angle adapter instead, which you can then use with the supplied Tornado or Powerspeed nozzles designed for maximum cleaning power.

All in all, I am very pleased with the underchassis lance as a useful addition to the other accessories available from Nilfisk.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most stylish and best display, 9 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have 3 Temperature/Humidity meters and this one has the best and most stylish display. It uses excellent easy to read characters, and displays the information you need to see - namely current temp and humidity in large digits, and max and min temp and humidity in smaller digits, so there is no need to press any buttons for normal purposes. Some other meters compromise the display by also displaying the time, which I do not need, and some do not display the max/min values. The max/min readings reset automatically each day, and in addition there is a long term max/min memory which you access by pressing the "R" button, and can reset manually. In case you did not realise "Anthrazit" refers to the charcoal grey colour of the border. My one was supplied without the Wetterladen logo on the front. Its not the cheapest one, but for using in a main room I do think its the best value.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful instrument at a great value price, 25 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is great value. It is no larger than the alternatives - 10cm wide by 10.5cm high - but the digits are large - 2.5cm high. You can read them from 20 feet away. This is a very useful instrument for indoors, larders, conservatory or greenhouse etc. It shows the actual readings, but also has a memory of max and min values by pressing the "memory" button. I am currently using my one to check the fridge temperature. I have 3 different digital temp/humidity meters, this being by far the cheapest. As long as you leave them to stabilise ( say one hour ) they all show exactly the same reading for both temp ( to the nearest degree - forget the decimal place! ) and humidity, so this one is as accurate as the others costing several times more. I bought the others for specific additional functions, such as remote sensors and dual memory etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy a genuine Zircon and you can't go wrong, 2 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Zircon introduced these scanners to the market over 30 years ago, and they are still a leading brand. This one discovers studs, copper pipes and nails etc, and AC cables. Follow the instructions and it works well. One negative aspect is the built in pencil marker. No-one would use such an instrument without a supply of pencils in their tool belt, and so the built in one is completely superfluous. The SpotLite LED pointer on the other hand is excellent. The other negative is the lack of a case. I may be over sensitive but I would be reluctant to lob this unprotected into a typical toolbox, so bear that in mind.

4.0 out of 5 stars An essential tool if you like active sports, 2 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I file my toenails to a tapered end in order to avoid bruising the nail bed when doing active sports. This is the perfect tool for the job. It is much easier to hold than a standard nail file, and the coarser grit size is just right. The only downside is the comparatively high delivery cost if you only want one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for feet and for people with larger hands, 2 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a large robust glass file, which is ideal for filing toenails. It is much easier to hold than a standard nail file if you have "large" size hands. Be aware that it is too thick to be ideal for the corners of finger nails. The only downside is the price, but if does last as long as they say, then it will be good value in the long run. At least I won't get "stabbed" by those pointed nail files any more.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best plastic tweezers I have found, 2 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I need plastic tweezers to use in a marine environment, and for delicate tasks elsewhere such as picking up mealworms etc. This is the best quality one I have found. The cheaper ones break where they flex after a while. The only downside is the comparatively high delivery cost if you only want one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and efficient, 2 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the cheapest portable hob, but in my view the best value for proper kitchen use ( ie it may not be the best one for camping ). It has a stylish modern design with very clean lines - with no knobs or other external controls. It is very versatile to use, and easy to control with only 5 intuitive touch controls, plus a timer. It has a wide range of settings and the usual 2 modes - you either control the power or the temperature. It is powerful and fast at high power, but in low power the hob cycles on and off, so it is easy to "simmer".
