ThoroughClean Chooses Yanmar
The company motto at Over It is a statement which underscores everything s also a commitment that sits particularly well with the Yanmar brand.
Following a successful trial period of fitting the Yanmar L70N single cylinder air s fire fighting units, ThoroughClean is now specifying the Yanmar L100N engine to their pressure cleaners to guarantee they meet mine specifications. Typically, these are pressure cleaners that pump at 3000 psi and deliver 15 litres of high pressure water per minute.
“We purposefully over engineer all of our products,” said Harold Muller, General Manager of ThoroughClean.
Our products are built to be strong, we have more than enough engine power and pumping capacity on board so that we can keep the revs down and deliver Above: Harold Muller longevity without any compromise to performance. This is a formula which has stood us in good stead
We have made a conscious change to the Yanmar brand for our mine spec equipment and the fire fighting said Harold Muller.
The Yanmar engines are very well accepted by our customers and their reputation for quality is completely justified. Our testing
and development proved that the Yanmar LN Series engines to be quieter than competitive products, an important consideration in the realm of the OH & S requirements. The Yanmar brand is also surprisingly price competitive, so the decision to change was pretty
easy to make.”
Power Equipment supplies the Yanmar LN Series engines which are then configured by ThoroughClean for each specific application. The Yanmar L70N displaces 0.32 litres and produces a maximum output of 6.7hp at 3600 rpm while the Yanmar L100N has a larger displacement at 0.44 litres and produces 10 hp at 3600 rpm. Quality and Compliance are also two key considerations of the ThoroughClean brand.
Our assurance to customers is that diesel mine spec units can be towed to a factory and it will be allowed on site and put straight into service. Our products are modular based which means that every aspect of the ThoroughClean unit can swapped in or out when required for service.”
ThoroughClean pressure cleaners are shipped to some of the biggest companies in mining and the hire and rental industry. It is therefore absolutely vital for reasons of product support that units operating in remote and harsh locations are reliable, dependable and durable. With Yanmar L Series air cooled engines on board, the comfort factor is assured.
