Accessory spotlight: Hotsy Telescoping Lance
If you’re cleaning floors, equipment, vehicles or other surfaces that are near or below eye level, then the standard lance that comes with your Hotsy pressure washer will do the job. However, if you need to take your cleaning to new heights, you’ll need the Hotsy Telescoping Lance.
Hotsy’s adjustable Telescoping Lance comes in three sizes, which extend to the following lengths: 6 to 12 feet, 6 to 18 feet and 8 to 24 feet. It’s made of fibreglass and is rated for 3500 psi of pressure and for water temperatures up to 200 degrees Celsius.
What are the applications of the Hotsy Telescoping Lance?
Here are some of the most common applications of the Hotsy Telescoping Lance:
- Washing your home’s siding
- Cleaning gutters
- Washing high-up windows
- Washing two- or three-storey commercial buildings
- Washing tall equipment
- Tree spraying
The Hotsy Telescoping Lance makes performing these cleaning tasks safe and easy. It allows you to avoid having to use a ladder or scaffolding. In addition to representing a serious risk of accidents, ladders and scaffolding are expensive, cumbersome and, finally, are time-wasters since you have to move them from one spot to another while cleaning.
Note that it’s very important that you use the appropriate nozzle for your cleaning task. A stream that’s too concentrated and powerful can damage delicate materials. To clean siding and gutters, you can typically use a 25-degree green nozzle or a 40-degree white nozzle. To clean windows, you’re usually fine using a 40-degree white nozzle and spraying from a distance of about 10 feet.
However, to be safe, it’s always a good idea to contact the manufacturer of the product you plan to spray and receive proper cleaning instructions.
How is the Hotsy Telescoping Lance used?
Our telescoping lance is very easy to use. Simply connect it to your pressure washer, extend it to the desired length, then tighten the lock collar.
For additional support, a strap and belt harness are available. These accessories make it easier to handle the weight of the lance and the torque created by the water pressure.
Another accessory many users find useful is the Extension Lance Control Kit, which allows you to effortlessly raise and lower the lance while spraying.
