CAMAS, Wash. — Landa, a manufacturer of industrial pressure washers, has introduced what it claims to be one of the largest ever portable hot water pressure washers.
The three SLX models deliver cleaning power of up to 9.5 to 9.9 gallons per minute and 2000 to 2500 PSI in pressure. All can sustain operational water temperature of 200 Fideal for cleaning fifth wheels and other extra-tough grease-cleaning tasks that require enough heat to melt away grime.
The SLX features a giant heating coil, consisting of 300 feet of cold-rolled, 3/4-inch Schedule 80 steel pipe, and is capable of supporting two cleaning wands that operate simultaneously. The coil is enclosed in a stainless steel wrap and the water is heated using a burner fueled by diesel or heating oil. The large, metal fuel tanks offer hours of uninterrupted operation.
Honda gasoline engines power two of the models while the third is driven by a 24 HP Lombardini diesel engine. Each has a Landa pump, with 7-year warranty, and features a 2000W generator with an extra 120V power outlet.
While it boasts a rugged frame, constructed of 2-by-4-inch box channel steel 1/8-inch thick, the SLX still has a compact footprint of only 55-by-32 inches. It stands 51-inches tall. Six large vibration isolators cushion the movement from the engine and pump to extend the life of the pressure washer.
All the units are plumbed for receiving water from a faucet or a water tank feed for large jobs.
