CAMAS, Wash. — Landa has introduced a new line of portable hot water pressure washers capable of supporting two spray wands that clean with a high-pressure spray heated to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

The six SLT models deliver cleaning power of 5.2 to 7.8 gallons per minute and 3000 to 3200 pounds per square inch (PSI). All can sustain operational water temperature of 200 degrees F-ideal for cleaning fifth wheels and other extra-tough greasy tasks that require optimal heat to melt away the grime.

The SLT series is also capable of supporting two cleaning wands that operate simultaneously. An insulated, high-capacity, shut-off spray gun is fitted with a swivel crimp to prevent hose tangles. And the stainless steel, variable pressure wand makes it easy to adjust the water pressure while cleaning.

The SLT also features an impressive, large volume heating coil, consisting of 300 feet of cold-rolled, 3/4-inch Schedule 80 steel pipe. The coil is covered by a stainless steel upper 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 four others are driven by either a Lombardini diesel or Vanguard gasoline engine. Each has a Landa pump, with a 7-year warranty, and features a 2000W generator with a 120V power outlet.

While it boasts a rugged frame, constructed of 2-by-4-inch box channel steel 1/8-inch thick, the SLT still has a compact footprint of only 55-by-32 inches. It stands 51-inches tall. Six large vibration isolators prevent the action of the pump and engine from passing through the entire unit 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 remote jobs.

The engine and pump are connected with a durable, cast iron pulley system with dual V-cogged belts for cool operation and longer pump life. The belts can be tightened easily with a single bolt using Landa’s unique true-track belt adjustment.

Other features include: Control panel with combination hour meter/tachometer/maintenance alert; JIC simple disconnect plumbing fittings; Centralized burner controls with diagnostic panel; Large capacity 7.5 gallon water float tank; 50 feet of double-wire high-pressure hose rated for up to 5800 PSI.

All the SLT models are certified by ETL to the stringent UL-1776 safety standards for pressure washers. Landa was the first pressure washer manufacturer to certify its entire line to these safety standards.
