It was trying to avoid the "buy cheap, buy twice" trap that led me to buy my HD7 in the first place. That said, the maths is a bit different, you could buy one for €400 delivered from Germany, which was only about £300 in October 2015. Plus I'd won a dashcam in a competition which I sold for £90...

Assuming the connection on the end of your hose is the same as BB's, it would look like this.

Hmmm looks like he has purchased a new hose.

I'm not sure hoe the hose is even released from the gun on my karcher, it's a snap in fit

He has got a new hose, but his hose has the same "plug" on the end of it as the original hose. This (PDF link) suggests you can disconnect the two.

So a quick release coupler would connect onto the original hose it looks like.

My hose his this end on it


Would this be the correct connector to fit it onto the new suttner gun?



I realise I'll need a male/male connector to join the 2

Did you talk to them?

I did mentally sketch out how I might install one of these in the garage before reminding myself the wife would murder me

Ah, no, slipped my mind - dealing with an insurance claim on the daily at the mo. The joys.

I'm alright on the boss front, she pretty much lets me do what I want so long as i put the dishwasher on and keep her car clean / serviced. I can handle that!

You're welcome to come and use mine when it's done... after all it is all your fault!
