No-one said the pursuit of perfection was without compromise!

If that's a major sticking point though, you need to find out the turning torque of the integrated swivel at the operating pressure of your machine, and compare that to the relevant external Mosmatic model.

To me it looks like the swivel is replaceable. Spec wise i think that the Suttner 2635 with swivel and 3/8 and 1/4 connections would be the best for me. I just need to find seller

My only concern is that it's a 2,800rpm model and hence not especially well suited to running on low pressure stored water supplies due to the risk of cavitation damage to the pump. I'd suggest you want a simple "lifter" pump setup to pressurise the supply to the high pressure pump. Although you would need to run power to that pump, this then gives you more latitude on where / how to site your water gathering apparatus. You can then put as little as possible of the pipework outside, and integrate trace heating to stop it freezing up in winter. I daresay you could rig it so the high pressure pump can't be switched on unless the "lifter" pump is running.

Get all that lot rigged up with a nice hose reel and gun and you're laughing. Look forward to seeing it take shape along with the rest of your garage

Yes, I might give them a ring this week and see what the craic is. Came upon their site looking for Annovi pumps like the one you suggested off eBay. I shall report back...

I'm intrigued what this is like? No sign of a link?

I have a k5 Eco,what would it do for me? Increased power/pressure?

Hi Soapy, are you asking about the equipment linked in post #21, or my suggestion of a "walkthrough" video?

My long reply to ttc6 further up in the thread summarises the pros and cons of replacing the stock gun and / or hose. The money involved would buy a budget PW all by itself, but the point is you can get a good quality setup that will last years, is built to do what you need, and is more or less machine independent, so your investment isn't wasted if you change or upgrade your PW.

It won't change the power of your pump, but I have found the right nozzle and gun allows me to use the capabilities of the machine I do have more effectively.

As I get older I more appreciate the adage 'buy cheap, buy twice'...

My cheap Nilfisk is starting on it's way out after maybe 15 hours' use. Gun still works fine of course but you know...

How would I connect the new gun set up onto the original karcher hose?
