Switchblade Static, Zero-Degree Hydro-Excavation Nozzle

Switchblade™ Zero-Degree Nozzle Pills

Each Switchblade™ nozzle body holds (1), (2), or (4) nozzle pills, allowing you to change water flow rate and pattern based on current soil conditions. These 0 degree nozzles provide greater impingement, allowing you to break up soil faster, while using less water. Tungsten carbide wear surfaces were used to withstand harsh environments and provide longer life than stainless steel nozzle tips.

Maximum Inlet Pressure: 3200 PSI (220 Bar)
Maximum Water Temperature: 180° F (+82° C)
Nozzle Tip Material: Tungsten Carbide
Connection Thread: 1/8” NPT

*Stainless steel thread tape is required for pill assembly and is included with each nozzle body purchase.
