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)
That’s what I thought I remembered reading & think it was on here I remember reading it’s cause as I said the e140.2 reel isn’t connected director to the machine but .3 is. I know when I bought/buy the extension hose I had to make sure it fitted the .3

It is because Nilfisk created a bend in the metal part as in this picture. The replacements are straight. You might say it is an improvement but not when there is no upgraded hose. I think the hoses supplied with the machine are better than the original on my. 2 though, they are now described as anti kink soft feel. I believe the options are the joint above or take the pieces off to the pump and connect directly there losing the reel and sourcing a connector. I do not know if anyone has had success with that and not doing it myself means it is somewhat hearsay.

Surprised a hose company hasn’t come up with a design that will work it it. Is the connection type that difficult to copy? Seems there would be a decent amount of interest in a direct fit aftermarket stronger hose

The patent for the design is with Nilfisk, and they won’t release or relax it for aftermarket hoses to be made. Trust me - I’ve enquired with lots of companies and they’ve all said the same!

Has anyone considered buying a wall mounted reel for £120 ish, and seeing if they do a female adapter that can simply be plugged into the end of nikfisk's hose?

What about taking both hoses to a pneumatic/hydraulic hose supplier and ask if they could/would swap them over - someone like Pirtek perhaps (maybe others more local to you) ?
