I've been looking at this. By any chance would you know if the hose can be replaced or if it's any good? I couldn't find anywhere advising.

Now up to £221 take it that it was another 24 hour deal.

In relation to the hose I'm pretty certain remember reading on here the .3 version hose is the one with a different connection to the main body which no-one has replicated yet. Earlier models I believe are ok for a hose swap but not this one.

Dont have one though after looking st the 140 i eventually went for the E145 as it had the same hose as the P150. My understanding when I was looking was to go for the superflex hose as it didnt need replacing. I know you will but remember to budget accordingly if you're replacing the hose as might be cheaper to buy a higher spec with the better hose.

Afraid I don't know, I clearly look at so much PW stuff on Amazon that their shopping app decided to tell me about this deal! Sadly it looks like the automatic pricing has jacked up the price as this will have been very popular.

You are right, the. 3's have stopped the simple upgrade to Superflex. I have a. 2, the standard hose was poor so upgraded. I "think" the hose on the. 3 is better being described as anti kink soft feel but not Superflex quality.

They have been at the £169 SG mentioned for a while but at the higher price I would look at other options like you suggest.

The problem bit is the bend in the reel shown in this picture. So far it seems there is no solution anywhere apart from chopping and joining.

This as a possible option, you just need to check up on sizes. ( I take no credit for finding this joint as it was Steelghost who discovered it)

Worth noting for when it drops in price again should anyone like it. Good machine otherwise.

I've been watching this for a while it's been that price for almost a couple of weeks.

Mine is still functioning at the moment hence didn't bite the bullet

I'm split minded at the moment as in which to go for as I already have an aftermarket hose and don't really want that to start gathering dust. I suppose I could always put it up for sale.
