PRESSURE WASH TRUCK

PRESSURE WASH TRUCK

At Doug Rucker Store, we provide PRESSURE WASH TRUCK and trailer build service.  This is especially helpful for those just starting out in the pressure washing business.  We recently had an opportunity to provide this service for a  pressure washing pro from Austin, Texas.  They purchased a previously city owned vehicle and brought it to us for the build out.  We did make some minor repairs and improvements to the enclosed portion of the truck before installing equipment. This included things like patching holes, installing new aluminum flooring, and sealing all surfaces. This phase is important to ensure maximum protection of new equipment.

 

 

SOFT WASH WITH KINGSLINGER

First, the KINGSLINGER SOFT WASH SYSTEM goes in with plumbing through the floor.  This is because the unit needs to be drained to keep moisture from building up and adversely affecting the system.  When considering a pressure wash truck or trailer build, this is a great way to provide soft wash service.  Soft washing is critical to protect a variety of surfaces from damage resulting from large volume of high pressure water blasting.  It has three different valves to meter mix ratios, usually water, bleach and another detergent.

 

ADDITONAL PRESSURE WASH EQUIPMENT

This particular project was for an existing car detail business that was expanding their service into the pressure washing sector.  So for this pressure wash truck build, we provide him with a new pressure washer also plumbed to an 85 gallon space saving tank.  In fact, two new tanks enable him to store water and bleach.  They are bolted down and firmly secure.  The schertz box remote control for down streaming and a new surface cleaner is also part of this package.  In addition, hoses and hose reels are a great addition to this pressure wash truck build.  It’s important to have pressure hose, soft wash hose, and a garden hose.  For larger projects, you would also want to consider spare hose in order to effectively clean without having to relocate equipment.  If it interests you, check out another post.  The sled is what makes this one really special!

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE

Many potential customers inquire about Kingslinger Distance through the Doug Rucker Store.  The Kingslinger Soft Wash System can be connected to a 5 GPM or 10 GPM pressure washer.  There are options with the Kingslinger such as with or without the compressor.  Also, hose or hose reel options can be considered.  One of the variables to evaluate when considering  any soft wash system is distance.  We provide a video demonstration of with a measuring wheel.  This allows you to see what you’re actually getting in terms of distance.  Here is more information when considering pressure washing start up business equipment.

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE VIDEO DEMO

KINGSLINGER DISTANCE 45 Feet

Upon measuring in no wind conditions, we were able to get to approximately 45 feet.  This was while using an 0020 nozzle, and then an 0040 nozzle.  Adjusting the ball valve vertically will obviously affect KINGSLINGER DISTANCE.   This is extremely handy especially for roof cleaning projects.  Some distance will be lost from the ground when cleaning straight up on vertical walls.  Our estimate would be around 2 feet.  Wind will also be a factor for distance with Kingslinger, or for any soft wash system in use.  We also discuss in detail the importance of evaluating the actual dedicated pump for any product you are considering.

KINGSLINGER GF VALVES

Another option available is GF valves, which we have found to help improve flow.  You can choose between the GF or Pentair valve system.  The three valve system allows you to control the mix for water, bleach, and any other cleaning solution you might be using.  Regardless of the mix ratio or detergents used, you can still count on approximately 45 feet for KINGSLINGER DISTANCE.  There are several more Kingslinger product videos available on the product website at the bottom that might interest you as well.
