New Tractor-Mounted High Pressure Washer
"We think it's better than any other pressure washer on the market," says Harley Harrom, manufacturer of a new pto-powered high-pressure washer that's virtually maintenance-free and mounts on any tractor 3-pt. hitch.
"It's less expensive than comparable powered electric, gas or diesel powered washers. By changing tractor speeds, it's infinitely variable and fits quickly to the tractor for convenient use," Harrom told FARM SHOW.
The new washer is rated at 3.7 gal. per minute at 1,300 psi, and 3.3 hp., which Harrom says is about twice the pressure of the average do-it-yourself car wash. The company also custom-builds washers up to 15 hp. with 4.5 gal. per minute at 4,000 psi, or 10 gal. per minute at 2,000 psi.
"Pto power is the most efficient way to power a pressure washer. Its 3.3 hp. is comparable to a 5 hp. electric washer, or an 8 hp. gas engine-driven washer because those motors are so inefficient. And, because it's pto-driven, you don't have another motor to maintain. This unit uses a high-quality Hypro pump and is virtually maintenance-free," says Harrom.
The unit is 32 in. wide, 28 in. deep and sits 3 1/2 to 4 ft. off the ground. It has retractable legs for dismounting. When mounted, there is room below it to hook up to the drawbar. Water can be supplied from a standard hose or from water in saddle tanks or a trailing tank. It's equipped with a soap or chemical injection valve.
The standard 3.3 hp. model sells for $1,245.
