Small brush that becomes a big brushDate Posted: 22 July 2016
The system uses a normal sized brush, suitable for the average car, and equips it with an up and down motor, which, coupled with the car wash gantry’s forward and backward movement, lets the brush, and its high pressure jets, navigate around the larger wheel for the perfect wheel clean whatever it’s size.
Integral sensors control the brush movement to exactly match the profile of the wheel, to clean thoroughly while protecting the vehicle’s paintwork.
Says Wilcomatic managing director Kevin Pay: “Customers often say that getting wheels clean is a priority from their machine if they are going to compete with the local hand car wash, but this is made increasing difficult by today’s popularity of large 4x4s as family vehicles, which can have alloy wheels of up to 22 inches that traditional rollover machines just can’t clean. The Wheel Master is a simple but clever adaptation to our standard rollover range, which allows a complete wheel wash whatever the size of the car.”
