It delivers the highest reception and signal clarity in the industry. The radio is the perfect solution for jobsites, limited workspaces, trailers, workbenches, maintenance vehicles and outdoor activities. Premium weatherproof aluminum speakers produce a rich, full sound, while a built-in, weathersealed MP3 compartment protects MP3 players and other audio devices connected to the docking portal. The radio also features a shock absorbing ABS polymer and steel construction to protect it against weather and abusive jobsite conditions.
Belt-Drive Cold Pressure WashersJenny Products, Inc.
Steam Jenny introduces four models of belt-drive cold pressure washers. Designed for heavy use, belt-drive pressure washers provide a longer pump life than direct-drive units. The extended service life is due to a pulley system that turns the pump significantly slower than if the pump was coupled with the engine crankshaft. The belt absorbs engine vibration and allows the pump to be located farther away from the engine heat. All models are designed for maximum durability and portability to meet the demands of commercial-duty applications. The units offer an ideal balance between power and volume.
