New line of belt-drive cold pressure washers
Steam Jenny introduces four new 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 the pulley system, which turns the pump significantly slower than if the pump were coupled with the engine crankshaft. Additionally, 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 pressure washers are powered by 9- or 13-horsepower Honda GX Series engines, and all models feature a triplex ceramic plunger pump that provides years of service while requiring little maintenance. The units offer an ideal balance between power and volume. They are available with pressure ratings between 3,000 and 4,000 psi, and flow rates vary between 3 and 4 gpm. Furthermore, a customizable option allows customers to choose a unit with pressure and flow ratings based on their specific needs.
Many standard features are incorporated into the line to ensure long service life. These include thermal pump protection, an unloader valve and a high-pressure relief valve to prevent damage to the pump. To protect the engine, the unit will automatically shut down if low oil levels are detected. Furthermore, the chassis is made with powder-coated, seven-gauge steel for enhanced durability. Other standard items include a professional-grade insulated trigger gun with safety lock; quick-connect nozzles with nozzle control; high-capacity, in-line water strainer; gun/wand holder; hose reel mounting adapter; and dual rubber isolators. The chassis is backed by a seven-year, limited warranty, and other components are covered by a one-year limited warranty.
For maximum maneuverability, the pressure washers feature ball bearing wheels on a solid axle. The flat-free pneumatic tires move over any terrain.
