    Hey, I got one of them. When I bought the thing I thought it would be a dust collector but it has paid for itself many times over. I, and friends, have beat the crap outa mine in the last four years but it still runs perfect. Remember to make sure the pump oil stays full. Mines run low, shoot, out, more than once but it still keeps blastin away. Good investment. Oh, be careful cause that baby will peel paint in a heart beat at the right angle.

    Just remember not to drive over the tip of the hose that has to screw into its pump. Dammit. Again...

    Ha ha, good advice, that easy enough to do.

    I modified the wand with a quick disconnect after the trigger assembly so I could easily switch to diferent sizes of end pieces. The longest one I have is eight feet long and works great for hard to reach places up high. With that one I can do my whole house without useing a ladder. I got end peices. 3, 5, 8 feet long.

    Did you just buy the end peices or did you make them up? Sounds like a modification I need to make.

    I made them up out of 3/8 stainless tubing I had left over from another project. You can get the quick disconnects from your Karcher dealer. In fact it was the dealer that gave me the idea when I went in to get a new nozzle. I asked him about a longer extension and he showed me some and the quick disconnects. I bought the disconnects and made my own extensions. Boy they are handy, it is so nice to do the side of a house without ever using a ladder
