    What are the differences between the 830 model and the 835? Are they the same unit? Same power head? In pictures they look identical just wondering what if any the difference is

      There is very tiny difference on the nozzle,
      the NV830 nozzle Model #: 1422FC830
      the NV835 nozzle Model #: 1397FC831.
      The power is the same.
