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) ?

Just seen this thread. I've been warning other people off the 140.3 because of the inability to replace the hose. The supplied one just curls up and I'm constantly having to unwind it. Never had this issue with my qwasher hose + C120.

Just to bump this old thread, seeing if anyone has any bright ideas on how to get around this naff Nilfisk design?

very disappointed in the brand with this sort of ****, locking a customer into using their own shoddy products.

The below?
