Thread: surface cleaner fatigue

  1. #21
    I think it was the combination of the Hammerhead I was using and I have a bad habit of squeezing the handles harder whenever I would go over very dirty concrete, like somehow it would work better and get cleaner if I squeezed harder. With the classic it just works so much better I stopped squeezing. I should have listened to Chris Chappell when I was deciding which surface cleaner to buy. He told me to get the classic, but I wanted to save a few bucks, and went with a hammerhead. It ended up costing me twice as much and sore elbows to boot.

    I still keep the tennis ball in the gun on the classic or big guy but the Steel Eagles I took the gun out and operate it with the ball valve on the end of the hose.

    My new classic handle is shorter and stays up without falling over, sure makes a big difference when you don't have to hold up the handle anymore on those large concrete areas.

    Take that crappy gun off your surface cleaner and just put a quick connect at the end of the whip line. Some recommend using the same gun you use for house washing, but with my BE, and probably with the Hammerhead, that won't work because of the way the SC is set up. Just use a ball valve and no gun.

    Got a Classic now. The gun is so easy to squeeze, I'll wait until it starts leaking then I will go with a ball valve.

    Interesting idea to remove the gun on the SC. I may have to do that. Learned a lesson the other day, bring extra O-rings. One blew out, so I had to dc the ball valve(QC to BV went out) and turn on and off the machine to reattach and finish the job. Good thing I was almost done with the driveway when things went south.

    O-rings are a must. Get a bag of each size, you will need them.
