“The Honda Killer”

“The Honda Killer”

For the markets who need a self-contained model where electricity is not convenient or available many customers select a machine with the Honda 389cc (13) engine.  Our experience has shown the Vanguard 14 engine to far outlast engines like the Honda 13 that are not equipped with an oil filter/pressure lubrication and a twin cylinder engine which cranks up easier and has way less vibration. A very effective strategy we have used has been to educate customers on the characteristics of an industrial level machine.  These would include an oil filter, twin cylinder, reserve horsepower, large engine fuel capacity, and an unloader that is replaceable and not mounted in the pump.  These characteristic are not part of many brands because the Honda 13 engine is not available with these features and the next size up that has these features is 18hp.  The solution Hydro Tek presents has been nicknamed the “Honda Killer” which is the Hydro Tek model SS35003VG pressure washer which has the same pressure and flow as the competitors but with 31cc more power.  In addition we install an 8 gallon gas tank for extended run time but do not locate it over the hot engine which is a huge safety concern when refueling if the engine is not cooled down.

  • 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. Some common applications include heavy equipment cleaning, vehicle cleaning, graffiti removal, restaurant hood vent cleaning, and livestock facility cleaning.

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.
