Exactly what I wanted
Our old hose went hard, and shrunk, so wouldn't pack away as it should, then it split just on the edge of the handle. I was going to cut it, and repair it, which I started to do, until I found that I could buy a new hose for a pretty good price, which was way cheaper than I expected.
It was posted quickly, and got to me in a couple days.
Install was relatively easy, but I'm good at that stuff, and I would recommend that unless you know what you're doing, get someone who does, otherwise it's easy to get it wrong.
Now the hose looks, and feels as it did when the machine was new, and we've got our machine back again, as it was when new.
If you need a new hose, then I would recommend that you get this hose, it's easier than repairing the old one.
