Today’s Hydrovac Nation Product Insider is about a replaceable cover that is sold by Revolution Equipment. The amazing digging action of one of the most popular hydroexcavation nozzles (it comes with a blue or a green cover from the factory) is what they’re known for, but users of this great product say they just can’t get longevity out of the OEM cover. Here’s the answer to getting a longer life out of these nozzles and keeping money in your pocket. This unique product from Revolution Equipment is a replaceable cover that is a one-time use product and sells for $35 CAN or approx $27 USD and installation is quite easy.
Once the popular nozzles OEM cover starts to wear simply remove the old cover and snap this replaceable cover in its place. Keep in mind that the replacement cover needs to be installed before the metal and the rotor seat of the nozzle starts to wear or open up. As we all know, once that metal wears, the nozzle is essentially shot. This simple replacement cover will help the longevity of your nozzle.
The durability and longevity of the OEM and replacement covers depends largely on the soil or material being washed and of the operator’s usage skills. General feedback has been that it lasts considerably longer than the OEM cover.
Terry’s tip: save your money and buy the popular blue nozzle instead of the green one. Use that nozzle as you normally would and then buy one of these amazing covers to extend the life of your nozzle. Just remember to install the new cover before you start to wear the metal on the nozzle. This process will greatly extend the life of your nozzle
Install summary: use the blue nozzles OEM cover until it starts to wear. Knock off the blue cover and make sure the metal is clean and then install the replacement cover on the nozzle. You are now on your way to truly extending the life of your nozzle!
Tanks and dig on!
