Received this piece of kit a few days ago and used it for the first time. We all have a bit of time on our hands so I thought I would make a concerted effort to sort cars out and also some paths. Cornwall is a v. wet county and we have the Cornish lurgy everywhere at the moment after this wet winter, ie black/green mould. Don't believe all you see on Poldark re sunny climes.
Used this washer with the foam lance after an initial blast to get rid of all the mud and general grime.
It is a solid, pleasantly weighty bit of kit; feels like a quality product. There are a number of good metal components which contribute to the quality feel. It is similar in use to most other washers but has the 'stop water' facility which is useful and also an innovative choice of nozzles giving different spray profiles. Word of caution here: after fitting a nozzle have a test spray some where safe. I found that occasionally I hadn't actually fitted it down properly. Activating the trigger fired a plastic/metal bullet at high speed. Best not at your car. This was after 'paying attention' after the first occurrence and seemed to be with one particular nozzle
The foam lance was excellent giving a thick, vigorous coating applied at good pressure to really soak the surface.
I don't know about the durability of the clear plastic elongated hose connector as this item is always subject to a fair bit of leverage/pressure and I think will possibly fail in time.
Its elongated to clear the the lance hose connection which is v close. I think I will try to fit a brass connector, male and female which should have the profile to clear the other hose. Minor quibble and more an observation.
All in all - v pleased and bought on the reputation of UF and the company in question.
