Non-Heated Pressure Washers for Agricultural Equipment


Pressure washers are available in both heated and non-heated models. Heated models have a device that heats water to high temperatures. Non-heated models lack this heating option. Heated pressure washers are the best for removing grease, sugar, protein, and similar organic compounds from surfaces. However, you do not need heat for all pressure washing applications.

Washing tools, such as agricultural equipment, does not necessarily require heat, unless the tools or parts are very greasy. High pressure levels and flow rates can remove most stains, mud, and dust from farm implements. Plant sap, manure, and water stains can also be cleared using non-heated pressure washers. Besides farming equipment, non-heated pressure washers can also clean storage areas.

Cold water pressure washers are powered by electricity or gasoline. The Super Max™ 8780 is an electric pressure washer with 4 GPM flow rate and pressure levels peaking at 4000 psi. This machine can be optionally fitted with a wet sandblasting system for removing rust, paint, and similar substances from the surface of tools.

The Super Max™ 8950C-840 is powered by gasoline. It has a pressure level of 5000 psi and a flow rate of 5 GPM. Gasoline powered pressure washers are ideal for outdoor use, because they do not require you to stay near an electricity source for operating the machine. This machine is not suitable for indoor use, as the gasoline powered engine emits exhaust. The Super Max™ 8950C-840 can be mounted on a trailer, making it a portable machine.

To enhance the power of these cold water systems for more demanding applications, pair them with Eco-Green® green chemicals. For more information visit
