Product feature: Brendon Powerwashers

An ideal addition to any hire fleet or construction site, Brendon Powerwashers, with its robust design and strength of the componentry, is hard to beat

The Brendon Cold Powerwasher model can be easily adapted for dust suppression

Founded in 1984, Brendon Powerwashers is said to be the largest manufacturer of engine-driven power washers in Europe, with models now available in New Zealand through Youngman Richardson.

There’s either a cold water or hot water trailerised Powerwasher option available, with either a 15-metre or 20-metre high-pressure hose (depending on the model), a 28-litre detergent tank, and a 15-litre anti-freeze tank.

The cold water trailerised Powerwasher has a volume of 15 to 16 litres per minute at 3000–5000psi (depending on the model) while the hot water trailerised Powerwasher has a volume of 12.5 litres per minute at 3500psi.

Options of either a Yanmar electric start diesel or Honda electric start petrol engine are available depending upon the model and they give approximately 1.5 hours of cleaning time on a full tank of fuel. The hot water model is designed to easily remove graffiti.

Other features include a powder-coated steel tubular chassis and backbar together with a triple-piston Cat pump. A thermo-sensor valve protects the pump from overheating for long periods when the user is not operating the trigger.

The ease of manoeuvrability is safer with a baffled water tank, making the units a portable solution for a wide range of uses across industrial, construction, agricultural, and food industries. These include cleaning plant and machinery, landscaping, street, and concrete.

The tank lid is lockable with a removable basket filter, so the contents cannot be tampered with, along with an attachment that converts the cold Powerwasher into a dust suppression unit, which is ideal for demolition hire.

Portable, trolley-mounted Powerwashers with the same heavy-duty triple-piston Cat pump and robust steel tubular frame are also available with the following specifications:

  • Electric or petrol-powered
  • 10m–20m high pressure 3/8" braided hose (depending upon model)
  • 4.5m of suction hose and Brendon Strainer
  • 2000–5145psi (depending upon model)
  • 13.2–16L of flow per minute depending upon model
  • Weight of the unit between 70.5kg and 175kg depending upon the model
  • Solid wheel construction to minimise punctures
