Here you go: Nilfisk E140 hose
- this is the one I bought and it is really worthwhile - if you've got the hose which it came with you'll have experienced the frustration of it 'coiling' itself back up and generally getting tangled up. With the replacement rubber version it just sits and allows you to get on with the job - not to mention it's a bit longer too allowing you to get all the way round the car. It also won't kink or bend like the standard hose either.
It's not cheap, but luckily I'd read a bit on Detailing World before I opted for the E140 so was aware of the 'fun' some had had with the standard hose, so had already bought the rubber hose and fitted it straight away which enabled me to sell the standard one as 'new' taking a bit of the sting out of the cost of the new one.
