Nilfisk E140.3 hose replacement

I've bought the old man this hose for xmas for his Nilfisk E140.3 and I've just tried to fit it and the fitment seems quite different to my E140.2, theres a sharp bend and the hose I've bought won't fit it. Pic below



I don't seem to be able to find any 10m durable hoses that specifically say 140.3 they all just seem to be generic E140 or E140.2.

I'm wondering if I can use the connection off the original one and attach it to the new hose somehow? or if there is a specific hose for the E140.3 that I'm missing?

This has been a problem on the newer 140’s and E130’s too. The ‘banjo fitment’ (I’m sure it’s called) is unique and Nikfisk won’t release the patent info for aftermarket hoses so I was told.

I need a new hose on my E140 (it’s 3 years old) and have been trying to source a new one for a while! So if you can find one let me know!!

Aren't they different depending on whether you have a model with a hose reel?

I used direct hoses and they were brilliant https://www.directhoses.net/

Interesting, hopefully someone has come up with an unofficial method of utiliising the original connection and a new hose!

My e140.2 has a hose reel and the replacement I bought works on mine but as in the pics the e140.3 has this right angle connection

For the E140.3? The website says this hose is not compatible with the E140.3

I believe don’t quote me the e140.3 cause the hose is connected direct to the machine it’s not replaceable.

^^ This is correct, I know there has always been a problem since the .3 versions came out because Nilfisk altered the way the hose attaches which I picked up from trying to assist other members in the past. As yet, I do not believe a Superflex "style" hose or equivalent has been produced and this is why you are having no luck.



However, due to a recent find , there is always 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)

Interesting, so how would that work? I take it you’d need to cut the original hose quite close to the hose reel then attach an upgraded hose onto that short piece of original hose?

I suppose you could do it at a point that left enough for any issues, you really only need the good bit to work with so as long as you have enough room on the reel I do not think I would go too short. You can always take off but cannot add on. My reel holds 15m for ref.
