I have a Bosch Aquatak 1350 pressure washer now about 6 years

This answer was rated:

I have a Bosch Aquatak 1350 pressure washer now about 6 years old but certainly not overworked! The "rotatory lance attachment for path cleaning now has a notion to slow down and indeed stop its rotation.
I have squirted WD40 down the inside and that gets it going again for a while.
What has gone wrong and is there a better solution?
Thanking you in advance.
Hi sorry to hear that,
I am Tech Michael I will be helping you today.
Please be patient as these are technical issues and take some back and forth until we can be sure of all the details.
We want to be sure we can resolve your issues correctly and as fast as possible for you.
Do you use other attachments with no issues?
Or only the path cleaner?
Thank you for your patience!

There is no problem with the other two attachment lances but they do not gyrate.

Thank you for that information. The problem you are having is with the internal bearings, they are work out, unfortunately they don't sell those parts so you will need a new rotary lance attachment.These can fail anytime especially if not used a lot.
I have listed the best place to get a replacement below.
I will stick with you until this is fixed and working as it should.
PLEASE RATE KINDLY AT THIS TIME, your question will NOT close or TIME OUT ;-)
No additional cost to you to rate.
Thank you and have a great day!

I will try to buy a new lance as you suggest.

My email is *****@******.***

The system doesn't seem to want to accept it. It keeps saying my email belongs to another customer. I used the service a few years ago - on a completely different question.

I will try to return to speak to you when I get the new part.


Hi Please try again, Here is new request.To rate, it doesn't cost anything to do that;-)
Let me know, also your email didn't come through as they wont.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have spoken to your suggested parts supplier. The pressure washer is no longer manufactured and they do not therefore support my model.

Is there any other source of spares supply or do I have to buy a new pressure washer?

Worried Dave

Hi I hate it when they dont do parts support after only a few years, but they work that way these days.
Please contact this site first before thinking of replacing the washer.
Please rate before closing this page, and I will stick with you it wont cost you anything further to rate;-)
