Live Swivel

Aside from my own personal pressure washer, I also use various pressure washers at work, all of which have much stiffer hoses than mine does. I finally got fed up with constantly fighting the hose of the pressure washer on the truck I drive so asked the boss to get me a live swivel. He gave me the go-ahead to pick one up. I have to say, it is the dog's bollocks. What a joy not to have to fight the hose all the time.

I mentioned to the boss that he should put them on all of our trucks. Flipping the wand to undo the hose kinks is just one annoyance. We also do hot water and steam cleaning so the full length of hose has to be unreeled regardless of how much length we need. Invariably you end up fighting kinks when trying to reel it back in.

Fighting the hose all day long on a 12 hour day gets old fast. Also, on some jobs we have to join together several hoses and they are threaded, not QC, so you always have to prewind the hose the requisite number of turns to then thread them into couplers. The live swivel would solve that too.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it!
