An absolute mess
on December 30, 2013
The first day I used the hose the mere vibration of the product touching the rubber wheel of the power washer caused it to wear through the outer rubber casing of the hose in several places down to the grey inner hose. I was careful to keep it away from hot engine parts so that wasn't the problem. Luckily, I stopped the power washer before it breached the grey inner hose. I taped up all the visible worn parts of the hose with electrician's tape. The next day I tried again and was careful to keep the hose away from the wheel and hot parts of the engine. Again the hose quickly wore down in a brand new spot from likely brushing up against the smooth tubular steel of the washer. This time it wore through the grey inner hose as well and sprung a high pressure leak. This second time I was only using the machine for about 15 minutes. The fact that this hose is so tightly coiled also causes it to rub against itself producing similar wear all along its length. This hose is so poorly made that if it touches anything, rubber on rubber, rubber on metal, rubber on concrete, etc. it will fail within minutes. Could not believe a high pressure hose could fail so easily. A waste of money and a piece of junk.
