The model 18L34 hot-water diesel pressure washer from Water Cannon is both powerful and portable. Featuring a Kohler KD 420ES electric start 10 hp engine with 12-volt self-contained charging system, the washer can thaw frozen water lines and clean sewer lines or sediment ponds.

Other features include stainless steel coil housing and Schedule 80 coil with one-piece molded insulation combustion chamber. The 12-volt DC oil-fired burner creates a 118-degree F temperature rise.

“If the incoming water temperature is 60 degrees, you’ll get about 180 coming out,” says Mark Williams, sales and product manager for Water Cannon. “You can jet lines with it. We have units in the north – Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota – all the way out to Alaska that are used for deicing lines.”

The pressure washer has an EZ Series General triplex ceramic plunger pump that delivers 4 gpm and 3,200 psi (Cat 66DX series pump available). Accessories include 50-foot hose, trigger gun, wand, chemical injector, five quick-connect nozzles, 9-gallon diesel tank and a four-wheel, powder-coated push-bar frame with 13-inch, no-flat, foam-filled tires.

“It’s portable yet still powerful enough to work out in the field,” Williams says.

Safety features include high-temperature protection, a pressure-relief valve, and a thermo-sensor that prevents overheating in bypass mode.

“It’s a complete machine that’s made for industrial use and ready to go. You don’t have to worry about plugging it in. It’s all self-contained. All you add is water,” he says.  “You can feed it off a garden hose or off a 300- to 500-gallon water tank.” 800/333-9274;
