    Been talking to Ben at Rutland pumps today and looking forward to him putting some ideas together for me. :D

    Yeah flipping annoying, £500 so not exactly pocket change :hey:
    Have found a place near stoke that specialises in power washers so I'm gonna try and get to tomorrow. Wish I'd found them in the first place but I'm new to the area so clueless. It was the bloke in machine mart that mentioned them funnily enough

    Got it to work and it did a decent job on a tarmac drive in fairness. I'd like to change the nozzle to a turbo if possible. There's only a single nut at the nozzle so is it possible to remove? When I clamped the lance in a vice and used a spanner the whole lot was turning but not undoing. There's nothing in the instructions. The lance does bolt to the gun assembly via a 22mm male assembly, is it possible to swap this section or will I have to buy an whole new gun+lance+turbo nozzle?
    Any help gratefully received fellas. Otherwise it's a phonecall to Clarkes :rolleyes::confused:

    Should be able to swap the end. A lot of the time Vice grips + bench vice are needed to remove them. Also they will most likely have a thread sealant in there. This can be "neutralized" by heating up the joint from my experience.
