hammerhead and general surface cleaner swivel upgrade
Permalink  
 


Mike, I know Hammerheads are cheap but that's what I use and had to replace my stock swivel that came with it. Below is a link where I bought mine (West Palm Beach). This one comes with a zerk grease fitting and lasts much longer than the sealed bearing swivel that come stock with it.

The sealed swivel practicly exploded. I heard a loud POW (sounded like a fire cracker) and game over. I give it a shot of grease about every other use.

My hammerhead/general surface cleaner crapped out on me after 3-4 months. The swivels are famous for this.

 

Call Bill at power wash store. For $330 he has a kit that turns your hammerhead/general into a $900 Mossmatic!

Mike try putting a grease fitting in the hole. You will need to tap it out. Then grease it. It may work.

Yep. I think they received enough complaints about the new sealed swivels failing and went back to the old school design. The sealed lasted about 6 months and this replacement with the zerk grease fitting has been going strong for over a year.

how much longer do they last? The 330 mosmatic upgrade will last forever? Good find!

We have 2 Whisper Wash surface cleaners that work very well. The first is almost 2 years and the second is just under a year. We have never had any issues other than some clogged nozzles.

We have been doing more concrete pressure cleaning lately and have been seriously looking at the Whisper Wash. What a great excuse to buy one and have the Hammerhead as a backup!   wink

I have done a 1/4 mile of housing units for HUD. consisted of 44, 1 & 2 story bldgs. All sidewalks,porches,vinyl, krud on bricks and shingle roofs. After the third one I wanted speed. I have mostly 4 gpm units with one 5.5 gpm. I bought a kit to hook the small ones together. It makes a difference and with the wheels you can actually enjoy a drink and wash at the same time.
