For use with hot or cold water pressure washers, this hose is rated for continuous temperatures of up to 250°F. It is built to exceed the EN1829-2 standard and will provide superior abrasion resistance that will increase the life of the hose. This hose comes equipped with durable 8-inch bend restrictors on both ends as well as a brass coupler and plug combo for flawless, secure connections with every use. Its unique “bite-the-wire” coupling actually reaches the wire braid for never-slip retention, far superior to the “compression” fittings used on conventional hoses. Each high pressure hose from Legacy has a permanently embossed identification to make for easy tracing and owner protection.
