Thanks, would the 15 degree tip damage a vehicle with a low psi machine like this?

The 2.0 orifice size is hard to find like you mentioned (found some but they would only get here in July).
LOOSEWHEEL wrote: Yes if you want to maintain the rated pressure. However, that size is not easily available unless you go to a specialty store. Most common sizes are 3.0, 3.5, 4.0. Will those orifice sizes work? Yes. However there will be a decrease in pressure.
Most sellers won’t spec the orifice size. Only the ‘degree’ pattern which makes it more difficult to find what’s ideal.

Bottom line, the ones that are sold on Amazon etc, will work.They just may not be ideal.

I think the 15 degree tip could potentially damage the paint if:
1) You're up close to the vehicle.
2) There's already a break in the paint (i.e., spraying directly into a stone chipped area of the paint).

Also, I suspect the 15 degree nozzle will not get great coverage on the vehicle as the water will not "fan out" as much as say a 25 or 40 degree nozzle, leading to potentially more time spent on trying to cover the car.

---

I've given this a bit more thought, and I'm just going to try out the 40 degree nozzle first before the RFD effect gets me to buy more accessories/things (at regular price!) to complete my purchase (i.e., getting a 25 degree nozzle). I suspect the 40 degree will be sufficient for rinsing the loose dirt and soap off my car.

Need help from RFDers' with this off the rail question - Looking for a Garden/water hose, like a 100 ft types, good quality non kinkable .. any good deals here? I know Costco has in-store for $32.99, anything better in terms of price and quality? Thought would need to buy a hose first before the PW.

Buy a rubber hose and you will rarely have a problem. Since I've changed all out to rubber hoses I have had no kinks or problems.

I am going to restain my 15 year old fence shortly (replacing is not an option) and I am wondering if either of the 1800 PSI units being discussed here would be suitable for the job? I had a 1600 PSI Karcher that died on me as I was ~25% of the way through the job, and it took quite a while to take off all the dust and dirt over the years....I started thinking it would be more cost-effective to get a stronger unit considering how much water and electricity I was wasting with an underpowered unit.

Thoughts or suggestions?

Beware of this store, theres no phone support, and it could take weeks/months for them to ship anything.

I've never seen such horrible service, ebay/Ali aren't even this bad.

It's for washing. With pressure.

You're welcome.

Seriously though - cleaning things like decks, driveways, fences, siding, etc. Could be used for cleaning cars (be VERY careful and don't get close).

I bought Bosch last night from Lowe's with request for pm+10% with home depot. Now I remember that I bought following kobalt in winter on clearance $130.

kobalt 2000psi

Even though kobalt looks much premium, but it's like 50lb heavy and bigger, so I am thinking to sell it (still unopened, so might be able to sell for 150 or above) and keep the Bosch for easy indoor storage in winters.
Still waiting the pm adjustment. Decision decision!Thinking Face

Appreciate the video, thanks!

Unfortunately, it shows sold out for me in store (Windsor) and online.

Just got my order cancelled from Home Depot after about 5 days.

I've got the email saying order was cancelled, but still yet to receive a refund or a mention of it. I called customer service and they mentioned it takes up to 24 hours.

Lucky for those who got it i guess.
