Dual Drop Design

We've engineered the perfect modular vacuum system, available in either onboard or central producer styles with two hoses, trash cans, canopy, light, speaker, and concrete drawing. The unique canopy shades customers and drops hoses at the rear back corners of both sides of the vehicle. This cohesive, elegant system stands head and shoulders above other, uninspiring car wash vacuum equipment.

    Dual Hoses

    The hoses are 1.5 inches at the nozzle, the perfect diameter for easy handling, and taper outwards along the hose in order to avoid clogging and maximize power. A swivel allows the hoses to twist and easily disconnect for maintenance.

    The triangular canopy is colorful and attractive, and offers partial shade for customer comfort. The assembly is supported by curved arch pipes, extending the facility's circular theme.
