How do you normally clean your heavy duty vehicle? Maybe you send it to some or take it to a garage? Or maybe you do it yourself manually? Manual cleaning is simple, but time-consuming. It requires patience and loads of efforts.
Unless you use a hot water pressure washer to clean your heavy duty vehicle.
A hot water pressure washer or cleaner is the best way to clean a heavy duty vehicle. It consumes less time, cleans ten times more effectively than manual cleaning and is very easy to use.
All you have to do is connect the pressure pump device to the water supply and power outlet. Turn on the tap and switch on the pressure washer to begin your cleaning process in style! You can use pressure pumps for wet blasting, pipe cleaning, terrace cleaning, gutter cleaning, vehicle cleaning, etc.
For cleaning large surfaces of your heavy duty vehicle, we recommend a high performance pressure washer. High-pressure washers or cleaners offer the perfect solution for any kind of cleaning tasks. Here are some tips that can help you select the right pressure washer for your heavy duty vehicle cleaning:
Depending on the size of your heavy duty vehicle, you will have to select the right pressure washer machine. Usually, maximum power is required to clean heavy duty vehicles or equipment. Cleaning a heavy duty vehicle is usually a tough job, but only when you don’t have the right equipment to make use of. The size and power of the pressure washer matters more than anything when it comes to cleaning your heavy duty vehicle. The right devices and accessories make cleaning considerably easy and fun!
Cleaning performance of a pressure washer is determined by how the water pressure and water volume are used in combination. The better these two factors are aligned, the easier it is to remove stubborn dirt.
Without the right kind of spray nozzle, your pressure washer is nothing but just an ordinary cleaning equipment. It will adhere to a single kind of setting that won’t be effective in different kinds of applications. There are about 5 different colored nozzle tips that produce different spray pattern and pressure making the pressure washer suitable for varied cleaning purposes. Yellow, green, white, black, and red are the different colors of tips available which have varied functionalities.
Motor (Only for Electric Pressure Washers)
You can select between two kinds of motors if you purchase an electric pressure washer – Universal (or Brush) motors and Induction (or Brushless) motors. Universal motors are found in low cost and small pressure washers and they handle the job without increasing costs. This is an ideal choice if you plan on using your washer rarely.
On the other hand an induction washer is larger, more powerful and lasts considerably longer. They cost more than the universal motors but are much more efficient.
Useful Tips to Clean a Heavy Duty Vehicle
When cleaning vertical surfaces of your heavy duty vehicle, wash from the bottom up and rinse from the top down
Spray in an inconspicuous area to test the nozzle before pressure washing more visible areas
To prevent damage, hold the tip of the pressure washing nozzle at an angle above the surface you are cleaning and a particular distance
Keep the nozzle moving in order to prevent the water from cutting into the surface
