Mrs got me the full set from QWashers including the stainless quick release. She also ordered a 10 metre hose with the quick release.
Used it yesterday and it is without doubt well worth the money and makes it so much easier and more enjoyable to use! I recommend to anyone thinking about getting one!

I do not see if it has been mentioned in the thread, but it may be good to know that Matt Moreman uses the NPT thread in his system, which can be a bit difficult to compliment or replace parts for those living in Europe.

It's a good point - all the stuff sold in UK and Europe is a combination of metric and BSP threads.

Although curiously, if you buy a lance with a fixed nozzle (ie one that is screwed in rather than using a QR), that will very probably have an NPT thread!

Of course the full kit from OG will work as a unit, and the quick connections are compatible with those sold here. But if you had a problem with one of the female QRs, sourcing an NPT thread replacement would be tricky in the UK.

Rob, I suspect this is one other reason why getting your setup from Qwashers rather than OG was the right call

I like Karcher fittings
K Series Bayonet, it works better with foam lance and washer lance, quick couplings on them become a bit unstable.
But I would also like to connect and disconnect a quick connection nozzle, so my solution has become a little different.
However, I can use both Karcher attachments and equipment with fast couplings with the same trigger gun.

I like the "Kew" quick release connections for lances - even when not under pressure they are mechanically very solid. Then I have the little 11.6mm quick connects to change nozzles.

Yes, that's how I do, but with Karcher quick release connections, it felt wrong to not be abel to use Karchers accessories with the "Matt Moremans" system, so I wanted the best of both worlds.

It actually wasn't SG... I did not know that!

But it just made more sense, a lot cheaper and according to Damian at Qwashers the Mosmatic gun is a lower grade Suttner gun than the one Damian uses just with Mosmatic plastic covers. Everything else is pretty much identical for £100 less due to the postage fee's and I have a piece of mind that it will be easy to return if anything goess wrong or any problems.

Damian at QWashers was very helpful and if anyone is thinking about getting this setup I strongly recommend it.

Hehe, it's definitely a good reason even if you didn't know it at the time!

Plus as you say you have a warranty contact in the UK in case of any issues, not that I expect you'll need it, that setup is pretty much as good as it gets
