Hi Overclockers,
So i currently have the below product that i purchased from Costco:


However, the lance is a bit short to use with the Patio cleaner so i'm looking for an extension but i can't seem to find one anywhere without buying a whole new patio cleaner like this:


Anyone able to find a extension that would fit my pressure washer?

There was definitely a chap in this sub who linked to an extension. Sorry can't remember who but if you search hard enough I'm sure it'll come up.

Thanks. I’ll do a search tonight. Surprised that nilfisk doesn’t sell them. With the patio attachment you literally have to bend down low to use it

.... get an adapter and a karcher lance .... I guess mine must be about 1.5m ... easily reaches 2/3 way under car body.

Personally never found the brush attachments as good as the power nozzle with ball bearing that whirls around

Brush?
My nilfisk patio cleaner is awesome and so much faster than the turbo jet.

This was my problem using the patio cleaner attachment, at 6'2" tall (me, not the lance) it meant a lot of stooping down and more so if wanting to apply any pressure. Binned it as I found it to be crap anyway but other speak positively of it (perhaps short-asses :D so better ergonomics), but good thinking on getting an extension for it. Do yourself a favour and get a longer hose from the washer to the lance while you're shopping.

Are you sure you're using it the right way around? I'm around 6ft and it's plenty long enough.
I don't know how else it could be used? Handle into lance, into cleaner. I can walk around with it stood up, but if I want to scrub I need to bend down to be apple to apply pressure to the brush head.

I've seen some people using them the won't way around where it hinges at the patio cleaner, ie pushing it backwards, makes it a lot shorter.
You don't need to scrub either, the brushes around the edge are only there to keep the spray and any debris from flying around.
I just moved it along slowly with zero pressure and it cleans perfectly.

I did need to scrub, it made a much better job of cleaning compared to not scrubbing with it.

What jet wash do you have that doesn't sound right at all. I have the P150. I can't even user the red jets as they're too powerful and start taking the cement out of from the patio gaps.

Try contacting the company that sells that kit, they might be able to point you in the right direction

I found mine quite back breaking, surprised these are not avialable
