Pressure Washer Nozzle
The Revolution rotary nozzle uses proven technology to increase impact pressure by more than 10 times that of conventional high-pressure spray nozzles. The Revolution attaches to the wand of most hot- or cold-water pressure washers, and blasts surfaces with a spinning spray action that is designed to clean deep and fast. It is rated for up to 4,350 psi. at 185 °F. The nozzle spins at 4,000 rpms to combine the fast-cleaning action of a wide-coverage, fan-spray nozzle with the deep-cleaning impact of a pencil-jet or zero-degree nozzle. It has a wear-resistant ceramic head and bearing ring to provide durability and is shrouded by an extra-resilient housing protector. The Revolution is sold by Legacy, which supplies parts and accessories for pressure washers. For more information, call (877) 283-2412 or visit www.c-techindustries.com.
