Pressure washer handle

Unread postAuthor: Leonard » Thu Aug 12, 2010 3:59 pm

Hello guys!

Just a quick question on pressure washer handle. Im looking to use one of these to pilot a QEV, but im hesitating on two different models, pic included.

I want to know if the pressure inlet can be any of the two ports. It is said that the inlet on the pressure washer handle pictured the first picture is the one at the botton of the handle, but i'd be looking to use the front port as the inlet, and the bottom port as the exhaust. Would it work? Because if not, i would use the second model, with the front entry and a 90 degre elbow.

Thanks for the answer!

I would go with the second, Im not sure how these pressure washer handles work, but most blowguns, and regular hose nozzles all only work effectively in one direction, so I would use the second one that can be configured to use the correct ports.

I believe the pressure does help tp keep it shut, so it would most likely leak if used inverted.

Here's what mine looks like inside:

Check out this great 3000psi pressure washer handle

[/sarcasm]


Get the second one, less dead space,

I was curious whether you can use a hammer setup with a pressure washer handle?

The inlet for the first is through the bottom. Hooking it up in reverse will cause it to leak and may damage some seals. I've used pressure washer handles for several projects (mainly because of their higher pressure applications) and I find it much easier to use the second choice you have posted.
