The type of high pressure hose used with a pressure-washer is not designed to be shortened or repaired by the customer or end-user. If the hose has somehow become damaged it will need to be replaced. If your existing hose is the detachable kind and you're wanting to shorten it, I would suggest taking it to someplace where they're in the business a making up hoses & applying the fittings with the proper tools. A good place to start would be either Ace Hardware or Sears Hardware (not a regular Sears store). Either place should be able to do it, or else be able to refer you to someone who can.

SOURCE: No pressure in the pressure washer

Leaving the hose on shouldn't cause a problem so don't panic. It sounds like you could just have a dirty nozzle. Try sticking a pin or something in the end of the nozzle (machine not running) and giving it a clear out. also if it is a two peice gun, split it and tap the squirting part on something clean like a workbench to clear any debris that might have got in there.

SOURCE: High pressure hose connection blew up. Fix? or buy new?

Yes take it to napa auto parts and they can cut and attach a new end which are for hydraulics. They are crimped on and meant to hold very very high pressure. I used to use a pressure washer everyday for a living and it was a tractor rental/repair shop and we used the hydraulic fitting machine on the power washer hose all the time so rest assured.

SOURCE: Coleman 2400 PSI Pressure Washer - WATER LEAKS OUT = ?!? Help me please!!! ((-:

Usually, there are spaces between the pump and head portion of the pump. This space is not sealed and will allow water leaking past the seals to come out. There may be a seal kit available, however I have had better luck just changing out the whole pump. There are many available on ebay. Search for one that will use same mount and hoses. Once the seals are gone, the pump will never be the same (may nickle and dime you the death).

Can a hose on a pressure washer be shortened from the take up wheel end.


I strongly doubt anything will hold; after all, we're talking about high pressure here. I've had customer's use a hose barb and clamp on home duty units, but for safety reasons, I don't recommend it. If it blows off, it could cause serious injury.
Replacement hoses for home duty units are available on line and in hardware stores. I'd buy a new one.

Want to know the proper length of the drain hose from washer to drain. I can shorten it to about 6" if need be


You cannot shorten it to 6 inches. The pipe must go up from the bottom exit up to nearly the height of the washer then down anywhere to drain pipe in wall or washbasin. But the drain hose must go first up and then down - important.

You can give me 4 thumbs, if helped that is.

Devilbis Excell pressure washer with Honda engine runs smoothly without wand, but stalls when wand is attached.


If the pressure unloader is not working correctly and/or the nozzle is partially clogged with debris, the engine will be overtasked. Try lowering the pressure by turning the pressure knob to lowest setting and test. If the engine continues to run, gradually increase the pressure. Try using the washer set to about 75% of rated capacity and use max pressure for stubborn stains. Using any machine at max will shorten the life of components. If lowering pressure does not help, then unloader is faulty or stuck. Try storing the unit with oil in the pump. Remove both hoses and infuse oil into water inlet intill all the water is displaced (let set for day or two). Good luck

Should I replace the vacuum hose or simply shorten it if a hole developed near the vacuum canister base? What are the disadvantages of this? For now I am doing duct tape, which is not so elegant as dust...


You can just shorten it as long as there is not a underlying power supply in the hose itself. after you shorten it use a "hose clamp" to hold the shorten hose in place. :)

Shorten hose, Beam


If your Beam has a fixed handle RUBBER hose with switches and is deteriorating between coils, you can dismantle the handle (or wall end) with about 6 screws. If it has a swivel handle with switch it can not be shortened. If it is not switched and non electric, the cuffs simply unscrew and the vinyl can be cut and reglued with vinyl adhesive.
You will see once open the handle that the hose has fine wiring wound through its shell and this wiring controls the switching between the handle and the vac. You must unwind the hose from the inside handle stem, cut short with a utility knife and wire cutters and then screw the fresh hose end back onto the handle stem.
The hose should also be glued from the inside (after cleaning with a dry cloth) with a contact type cement suitable for rubber and plastic. Generally PLIOBOND is used.
Then splice your wiring and reassemble the handle.
