    Re: What`s with the short pressure washer setup

    I found this set. Last years MTM gun with 18" wand. For a good price, even after some QC attachments from gun to wand.
    Will be using an angle QC. for nozzles.

    Eventually I think both wands, will be the best for me.

    I just use the MTM short gun with either the foam cannon or spray tip right off the nozzle, no extensions...just easier for me that way. Safer too as with anything longer than a foot in my hands I tend to knock it into things when not paying attention so I sure don`t miss the length of the stock long gun or extension.

    mobiledynamics- Heh heh, that was a good analogy regarding the shrouds for nozzle tips. I might look into those if I get a, uhm...real pw with the standard tips.

    Though every time I think about upgrading, I think how this [crappy] little AR has outlasted all my pricey ones and that *FOR THE VEHICLES* it`s plenty.

    The Quick Disconnects - even with the extra ball bearing retention does get tight from time2time. I have to fight with it sometimes in order to quick connect/disconnect. As a rule of thumb, whenever I change a tip, I always shoot downwards towards the floor as a test shot with the gun. Aka, the cheap ones might be easier to operate as the ones that have like 8-10 balls per coupler, somethings I find you literally have to take a step back, breath, and then try to release the damm thing. It`s not so KWIK sometimes...

    I can say with fault, at least a couple of times, I did not engage the tip into the disconnect 100% even though I thought I did - I only know as when I press the trigger, the tip comes flying out. If this was paint, this is where the hoody would be the saving grace.

    Yeah, "When Quick-Connects Attack". I`ve had a worn-out one release a foamgun at times, and that`s not even under great pressure.

    50 seems to be the sweet spot ?. Long enough to not need to move the machine as you work around all 4 corners of the car
    That is actually a 50` hose in the pic. It`s kink resistant but it`s also kind of a pain to coil up. I like it over all and I agree, 50` is perfect. It was blue and matched my color theme for the shop!
