The Semi-Pro Series is designed to provide a fully featured pressure washer that is suitable for light commercial and consumer use. Semi-Pro units are configured to produce pressures ranging from 2,400 psi to 4,000 psi and are powered by Honda GX or Robin-Subaru engines with a choice of AR or General pumps. The line also features a state-of-the-art aluminum frame with a lifetime warranty. Additional features include adjustable pressure, padded shock absorbing feet, gates hoses with quick connect and four color-coded spray nozzles.
Greg Spradlin, president of Proline Equipment, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., calls the SP Series pressure washer a good value because it combines an aluminum frame with 4,000 psi. Most value line units are on steel frames, which start to rust away very quickly, Spradlin says. Aluminum looks good for a lot longer. “We threw it out on our rental fleet for six months and we didn't have a single problem with it,” said Spradlin, who now sells the line. “If it can handle that abuse in rental, it can handle anything.”

Riveer Co. introduces its Heavy Mud racks, which feature a solid tread plate surface, a gradual slope to a center trough and the same 10,000-pound wheel load capacity as its standard Cyclonator racks. The company's patented filtration and recovery system ensures that the center rack is always dry and the filtration system recycles constantly to ensure clean wash water. The Heavy Mud racks are designed for use with the Cyclonator II for heavy dirt applications.
Pat Barney, owner of Aerial Work Platforms Inc., Waukesha, Wis., initially chose the Cyclonator product after seeing it at an ARA show and checking out referrals given to him by the manufacturer. Barney also found that the company was very quick to respond to problems encountered by customers. “They listen to what the customer is saying and they make the adjustment,” Barney says. “They want to make it right, not just sell us a product.”

Shark Pressure Washers
Shark Pressure Washers rolled out a series of self-contained, gasoline-powered hot water pressure washers designed for on-site cleaning. The four models of the SGP series deliver cleaning power of 3 to 3.8 gpm and 3,000 to 3,500 psi of pressure. All are powered by 9- to 13-hp Honda engines with two models featuring electric start. Other features include a cold-rolled, Schedule 80, heating coil made of ½-inch steel pipe; adjustable thermostat and hour meter; and downstream detergent injection system.
When called upon to clean up a major oil spill in Massachusetts, Braintree-based Clean Harbors Environmental Services turned to a local rental company for pressure washers. “The specific model we were using was transportable and could easily fit in the back of pick-up trucks or onto tow behind trailers,” says Mark Andrews. “They could be transported into beach areas where larger skid-mounted pressure washers couldn't.”

It comes with chemical injector, four high-pressure spray nozzles, one chemical nozzle and heavy duty gun and assembly.
Bill with Faribault Rental in Faribault, Minn., chose the Shipp pressure washer “because it's light with the top-of-the-line components; the engine, unloader and pump are all industrial grade. With the weight being so much less and the strength of the cold roll steel axle, you can really throw it around and it can take it.”
