This is where it all started for me. The Kranzle K1122TST was the first pressure washer I purchased after only using a hose and a nozzle for years. Talk about a significant upgrade, I knew I was entering into a new domain when I purchased this unit. I think of this pressure washer like a Porsché GT3. The performance, the quality, and the country of origin.
This machine is unique in the Kranzle line. It has auto ON/OFF that makes it super functional for car washing. Release the trigger, and it turns off. It will work on a dedicated 15A, but I'd suggest you get yourself a clean dedicated 20A to be safe. What makes this pressure different from other pressure washers is that it can run dry (which I don’t recommend) and on bypass longer than most other competitors.
The 50 ft hose that comes with it is surprisingly nice. It’s a braided hose that comes on a hose reel. It also features a steel frame with a plastic cover that can hold your accessories. Super nice and convenient for those of you who want to move about freely.
I’ve mentioned how this pressure washer is the cornerstone of Kranzle’s brand. It’s just freaking amazing. Before I arrived on the scene, Kranzle was selling roughly a container full of these K1122’s. Now, we’re selling twice as much of them if not more. The response from the car detailing world speaks directly to the desire of wanting better. When you have a quality product that works great and looks amazing, you’ll have an audience who will buy/want it.
What makes this portable solution a great choice is being able to move about vs having a fixed setup. If you’re someone who doesn’t want to have a wall mount solution or if you’re a mobile detailer, this will definitely be a sensible purchase.
When I first started on this quest for the perfect pressure washer, what I really wanted for all of us was a small, compact pump that I could put on a shelf that looks and works like the Kranzle K1122TST. That is the main component of my Obsessed Garage Complete Kranzle Pressure Washing Solution. Empowering you to make a choice between mounting your pressure or having a portable solution like this one was always part of my vision.
What I really like about this revamp we’ve done with our pressure washing kits is that we’re giving you more options. You’ll have three tiers available to choose from. Basic, advanced, and ultimate. Each package comes with upgraded fittings (Brass or Stainless Steel), an upgraded sprayer/wand, and either an original foam cannon or Griot's Garage The Boss Foam Cannon.
You’ll see some similarities in these packages but the most obvious difference will be the sprayer and wand combo you’re getting. I want to discuss all three of these products in greater detail to give you a sense of awesomeness you’ll be purchasing.
The SGS-28 in our basic package is a well-built, swiveling sprayer that was based on the SG-28, but has all stainless steel internals. The reason why you want a swiveling sprayer is because it alleviates the issue of the pressure washer hose getting tangled and twisted.
The Original Mosmatic Sprayer in our advanced package has a swivel as well. The difference is that the swivel on the advanced sprayer is made by Mosmatic and is of much higher quality - it swivels much smoother. The trigger mechanism is also a lot more stout, yet requires very little effort to engage. I still install PRIMA fittings on the Original Mosmatic Sprayer to help keep costs down.
Finally, the OG Spec Mosmatic Swiveling Sprayer. This is my pride and joy. Lots of money and time went into developing this sprayer. This piece uses all the best connections and hardware available in the market. It also swivels but the swivel and QD (quick disconnect) is built into the handle, reducing the bulk on the inlet of the sprayer, making it much more ergonomic.
This kit isn’t complete without the wand. I have two options: the Original Mosmatic Stainless Steel Wand that comes in the basic and advanced kits and the OG Spec Mosmatic Stainless Steel Wand that comes in the ultimate kit. These wands both have a 20° bend in them to make rinsing the roof or the lower portions of your car easier. The notable differences between these two are the fittings and the rubber nozzle protector. The Original Mosmatic Wand uses MTM fittings and has a nozzle protector installed on the wand already. The OG Spec Wand uses Mosmatic fittings and has no nozzle protector. This is because the nozzles that come in the Ultimate Kit have the protector.
Nozzles are also an important part of your pressure washer accessories and need to be upgraded. The nozzles that come with the pressure washer are prioritizing pressure over flow. For washing cars, flow is king. The nozzles I provide are some of the best out there. In the basic and advanced kits, you get a 4-pack of stainless steel nozzles from MTM. In the ultimate kit, you get the OG Spec Mosmatic Nozzle Assembly.
This kit does not come with a KobraJet hose. Kranzle’s OE hose that comes with this kit will work just fine. We’ve had people inquire about swapping the hoses out. I guess you could do that but it wouldn’t be something I’d suggest. It would require some work to remove the reel on the K1122 and you wouldn’t experience the same smooth winding/unwinding that you would if you had a High-Pressure hose/Coxreels Hand Crank Hose Reel combo.
If your objective is to have a true portable solution that gives you the freedom to wheel around your pressure washer and accessories, this is what you want.
