Pressure Washers.... Annoyance!

Is it just me....

I have a K4 pressure washer, it works a treat BUT!!

Why do they put the water inlet on the front, when common sense would say put it on the back?

AND

Those integrated hoses that wind up on a spool, I must spend more time un-kinking it and detangling it. As, as soon as you walk back towards the machine it tries to coil itself back up!

Rant over!

I'm sure I read somewhere that the k4 is meant to be operated with the machine lying down hence the water inlet on the front and the lance hose pokes through the hole at the bottom. Not sure how true it is. Indeed it is annoying, I don't poke the lance hose through that hole and just leave it facing backwards as I've bought a 10m hose as the 1 that came with it was garbage, like you said, just wants to curl back up. So much better now, don't need to touch the pressure washer at all when going round the car

That is certainly the case for my K4 Compact

Just a thought, it needs to be low so it can drain when disconnected therefore if it was at the back and the machine was tilted to move on it's wheels it would get damaged ?

Hi Peter, could you let me know where you got your hose from please.
I think that may alleviate most of my frustrations.

Thanks
