  • Pressure Washer RD80763 Hose Length

    Is there an absolute hose length maximum that can be used on this model? I've got 60' total (two 30') and it's not enough to do the house roof.

    The larger the ID of the hose, the longer you can run it (within reason).
    I've seen folks use 150'+ of hose on their machine without an issue. But that was on flat (more or less) ground. What you need to be more concerned with is whether or not it can handle the head (elevation) without causing too much of a static pressure issue. At the very least you'll almost surely lose the ability for chemical injection, just due to that static pressure.

      Thanks for the reply. I'd forgotten about the height being a factor. I did manage to complete the roof but it sure was a hassle switching from the back to the front of the house. The biggest problem was the hose wanting to slide off the roof.
