Consumer Electric Pressure Washers have opened the pressure washing world up to all! Consumers and enthusiasts now can perform jobs that were once only done by professionals. Designed to run on a standard electrical outlet, these machines can run various levels of PSI and GPM. This evolution has moved the industry forward! Unfortunately, many users struggle to adapt high-end pressure washing accessories to their consumer electric pressure washers.
In this blog, we'll take you through the most popular consumer electric pressure washers, and the adaptor kits we have developed with these machines in mind.
This Karcher K5 unit has a fixed connection between the pressure washer and hose, and a proprietary connection between the hose and the spray gun. Due to these connections, we can’t adapt the K5 to our aftermarket hose and spray guns. Obviously for this reason we can’t recommend this pressure washer.
The Portland 1750 has a proprietary connection between the hose and the gun, but an M22 connection between the hose and the pressure washer. So if we were to upgrade the hose on this unit with one of our Kobrajet hoses you would need to upgrade the spray gun as well because the stock spray gun will not be compatible.
Last we have a Karcher K1700 Cube and a SunJoe SPX3000. Both of these units have M22 connections between the pressure washer, hose, and spray guns. This means you can upgrade just your hose, or just your spray gun using the appropriate M22 fitting.
Now that we’ve identified what to look for in adapting a pressure washer, how do we know which adapter kit is needed?
SRG and RSK Kits
We offer kits in both brass and stainless steel.
First, the SRG kits. These fit most SunJoe, Ryobi, and Greenworks pressure washers.
Next, the RSK kits fit most Ryobi, Simpson, Karcher, and Kranzle pressure washers.
The easiest way to determine what M22 adapter kit to purchase is by measuring the connection on your pressure washer. You can use a measuring tape, ruler, or a digital caliper, but you must be able to measure in millimeters. Because we’re talking millimeters, the digital caliper will be the most accurate.
Once you’ve determined the size kit you need, 14mm or 15mm, you’ll need to choose between brass and stainless steel. Brass is a less expensive option that is still corrosion resistant, while stainless will offer more durability and superior corrosion resistance at a slightly higher price.
Adapting your pressure washer opens a world of accessories. From our industry-leading Kobrajet hose to MTM’s line of SG series of spray guns and attachments – upgrade your consumer electric pressure washer to high-end Veloci accessories with an easy-to-install adaptor kit.
