Improved Clamping Method on Mufflers

Improved Clamping Method on Mufflers

A new mounting method (part# FD118) has been established for a solid, field serviceable muffler mounting clamp for the engine exhaust elbow with rain cap (#MS158).
The MS158 elbow is used whenever engine exhaust must be diverted away from bulk water tanks. The elbow was previously being attached with a pop rivet that under some circumstances could work loose and contribute to bulk tank heat damage from engine exhaust. The FD118 clamp and MS158 elbow are designed to work with 14, 16, and 18HP Vanguard Engines. If the engine is a Kohler 20, 25, 27HP or a 21HP Vanguard use muffler elbow part# MKD02, that includes the attachment clamp.  Replacement clamps can also be ordered, using the same part number FB118.

  • Advantages of a Hot Water Pressure Washer

    Simply by heating up the water, a hot water pressure washer delivers dramatically improved cleaning power compared to a cold water machine. Hot water pressure washers are especially useful for cleaning sticky, greasy, or oily surfaces, because they will loosen the dirt much faster without the large amounts of soap, detergent, or other cleaning chemicals that must be used with a cold water system.

  • Hot Water Pressure Washer Applications

    A hot water pressure washer is essential for any cleanup job involving a sticky, greasy, or oily mess, as well as for applications where a surface must be sanitized. With a variety of models available, including self-contained mobile units with gas, diesel, or electric power, Hydro Tek hot water pressure washers can go anywhere and clean anything.

Quality & Innovation Since 1985

Hydro Tek

From simple beginnings in 1985, Hydro Tek has grown to become the most trusted name in the pressure washer manufacturing industry.

How did we do it? By continually focusing on quality and reliability as the key to customer satisfaction, and by incorporating the latest technologies into our design and manufacturing processes.

By 1991, we were using computer-aided drafting systems to refine our product designs and improve efficiency. In 1997, we brought the power of computers to the shop floor by incorporating laser-cutting and other CNC manufacturing machinery, and in 2001 we began focusing on improving efficiency through the latest manufacturing techniques. The end result has been superior products delivered at a superior value to our customers. Through the next decade, we look forward to fulfilling our vision of making our products the "obvious choice" for all your industrial and commercial cleaning needs.
