MFrs will be the 1st to use it...


An industry first to have the 1 1\2 tube flare out to 2" before joining to the head.
On the hose end, the wand comes with a 1.5" to 2" removable adaptor

Gimmick?



Think again.

Just out of curiosity, how do you think it’s going to do going from 2”, down to 1 1/2, back to 2”? I guess the idea of velocity will come into play.... if it works well, I’m ordering one...

Having to use 2 inch hose all the way to a 1.5 inch wand is gimmicky to me. The whole purpose, for me anyway, of having a 1.5 inch wand, is being able to use a 1.5 inch whip hose so that you are not knocking all the pictures off the wall and antique vases off the table as that 2 inch hose behind you has a mind of its own. Much easier to use in tight corners, closets, stairways, etc. I use to have a Prochem stair tool with a 2 inch flare. First thing I did was to get a hacksaw and fix it.

“the 12" has a 1.5 tube but is flared to 2" on both ends for performance boosting.“

I wasn’t asking that; are the regular wands 2”?
If so, why not just put a 12” head on one? There must be some long explanation...

weight reduction and a 12" head actually works better with this set up...

Some here do it with a 2.5
Cause they just want to squeeze every extra inch of performance.
Pictures, paint and baseboard be damned.

It's a he-man thingie.

Some of you guys are acting like you're extracting a basement full of 5' deep water with that wand. You might feel a difference with the smaller tube on a job like that. But with a 2gpm flow of water...I highly doubt you'll notice any difference in the two sizes. As for a 12" head...my opinion, after using a 15" head wand, go ahead, wear that shoulder out. 12" is old school, over work.

Tom should've went bigger, not smaller. I was hoping to see a 16" devastator swivel for the big jobs. Shame
