Hi Karl,

1) Depending on which machine you have, if it was available with a hose reel option then you can usually retro fit them. If you have a ‘portable series’ machine then you could buy a hose reel and short connecting hose and fit the reel on the wall or in a van.

2) Running the machine for 2-3 seconds (even 30seconds) providing the ‘inlet hose’ is disconnected (rather than just turning off the tap leaving the hose connected) then this is good practice. The seals are protect during ‘dry running’ with a graphite disk which powders the plunger to be a dry lubrication.

3) Your machine should already have a small ‘Flies eye filter’ where your water inlet fitting is, just inside the pump. However Kranzle do make an ‘inline water filter’, part number K133003 which can either go between the pump and your hose, or hose and the tap. The internal filter can be cleaned or a new mesh filter can be purchased. These are available through our dealers, just quote the Kranzle part number.

Hi Will,

I have a K7/122
Which reel do you recommend?
This may be a silly question, but I'm guessing I have to source a reel with the M22 Fitment? Or can I purchase attachments?


Thanks Karl

Hi Karl, the K7/122 is in the ‘portable’ series and does not have a hose reel option. You would most likely need a separate reel with its own mounting and plumb the machine in to that. One option is K41.2597 Automatic hose reel. This is on of the systems similar to the air lines you pump your tyres up with at garages, you pull out the hose you want, then it locks off and holds position, then a little tug and it will pull the hose back in winding itself back up, this is a large stainless steel system. The second option I have seen is to use a ‘hose reel add on kit’ K48.100 1 from our 2000 series purpose built to suit that ‘2000’ machines frame, this has a 15metre hose on a reel and comes with a nice crank. However, where the reel mounts on with two screw blocks, if you make up your own two wooden blocks for example and then screw the mounts to those once fixed in the place you want the reel can be wall mounted. You would also have to get made up yourself a short connecting hose from machine to reel entrance point, measuring the distance from machine to reel location. This second option requires far more fabrication and your own work, its not a simple bolt on and go. Hope this helps.

Hi,

I have a HD7/120 and when I release the trigger on the lance the water continues to flow/spray for a second or two afterwards instead of cutting off straight away like it use to.

Any idea what's wrong ?

Thanks

Good Morning to the people at Kranzle,

I was just wondering if you could kindly explain the difference between the Kranzle K7 120 and K7 122? What are the advantages of the new model?

Thanks in advance

Apologies for the delay answering questions.

Hi Desertduck, Do you know which model trigger gun you have? Should say on the side, the most likely options are: Pico, Midi, Starlet or M2000. The Starlet and M2000 gun can be adjusted and repaired with good success. The Midi or Pico gun may need replacing as servicing these models is tricky and costly (often the same price as a replacement).

A new M2000 gun has the part number K12480 and the heavy duty starlet gun is K123202.

Exploded parts diagrams can be found on Kranzle.co.uk for our trigger guns.

Hello Criptop,

The two main differences between the 7/120 and 7/122 are the new ‘Easy start’ and the longer pump, the longer pump means longer pistons/plungers and an improved water seals and leakage return. This scaled down version of our big seals means any water able to escape past the high-pressure seals would then be returned to the pump for the next stroke, this greatly reduces cases of oil emulsification due to worn seals.

The ‘Easy start’ is a cleaver release valve plunger in the unloader system that allows the pump motor to be switched on without fighting against pump pressure. On the older 7/120 you would have to be squeezing the trigger while you turned the machine on to achieve this, the new model does it all inside by itself.

Best regards

William

The M2000 gun is standard equipment on most machines as is designed to be light and comfortable in the hand, its easy to service and adjust but does require servicing.

The Starlet gun is the heavy duty gun which comes with our big three phase 415V machines or the petrol engine driven machines. It’s twice the weight of the M2000 but can with stand rough use and abuse, its also suitable for much higher flow rates and pressures.
The hose connection point also differs, for the M2000 it is in front of the hand grip, the Starlet has the connector at the bottom back corner of the hand grip.

Best regards

Hi Bertie, on the the 1151T the oil filler cap should need a 22mm socket, but the front cover can be removed to give better access (six screws in the back).

Best regards
