A Truck Mount has three main distinct advantages, they are as follows:
- The vacuum system on a Truckmount is completely different to that of a portable. It runs off what is called a Displacement Blower which enables us to run on our machine 250 feet of hose if need be. A portable really starts to struggle on 75 foot of hose showing the lack of performance on this type of machine.
- The solution pressure on a portable runs at between 70 and 150 psi but on a Truckmount we have the opportunity of going up to 500 psi if needed which gives a deeper clean especially in areas of heavy soiling like in some commercial environments.
- A Truckmount will produce hot water. Hot water cleans better than cold or warm water. Water cleans better at higher temperatures. With heat, the activity of cleaning solutions is dramatically increased which improves both the speed of cleaning and the effectiveness of soil removal. Greasy soils in particular become easy to remove with elevated temperatures.
Higher temperatures, more vacuum and water pressure combine for performance which no portable unit can come close to.
