Perfect to Wash Motorcoaches

The Tower Wash is the perfect solution for washing Motorcoaches. With the Tower Wash, washing a Motorcoach regularly becomes a reality in a cost effect and clean way. The growing height and window size of Motorcoaches makes them increasingly difficult to clean by hand. It’s hard to get sufficient pressure using a hand-brush on high windows and lights.  Wash your Motorcoach with Polyethylene Brushes which provide a gentle clean wash. Each strand is 0.6mm; the finer the brush, the better its ability to clean fine crevasses. The cruciform shape of the strand allows a bead of soap and bead of water to sit in the crevasse for lubricity.

The Tower Wash unit has a small footprint. A Tower Wash unit won’t take up a lot of room in your workplace. Not only that, it’s easy to push off to the side with since it stands on high quality caster wheels.

Operator stays dry. Gone are the days in which your staff dreads washing the fleet. A dry employee is a happy employee. Expert Service & Maintenance. Our technicians have consulted on, designed, installed and maintained hundreds of wash bay and water treatment systems since 1991.

Keeping dirt and salt off your Motorcoaches not only make them look better, it can also save you money for paint and body work costs, extending the life cycle of your fleet. Hand operated pressure systems can damage vehicle graphics. Tower Wash soft brushes with not damage or peel graphics. It eliminates the need for those frustrating paint touch ups and make your Motorcoaches clean, visible and safe.

SAVES MONEY

“When looking for ways to save money, we found it. With our recent purchase of an ACC Eco Power Brush, no more hand washing and one less person. Saves $$$.”

Charles Beckwith, Turner Coaches (customer since 2004)
“We have operated our ACC Eco-Power Brush for ten years and have experienced “0” zero days of downtime, zero workers compensation claims regarding its use and an average of $400.00 has been spent on routine maintenance annually. I wish motor coaches were that reliable.”
Dave Bolen, Academy Express (customer since 1998)
“We own 3 machines. All of them work flawlessly & require virtually no maintenance.”
Rick Hillard, Tri State Travel (customer since 2000)

“I attended the Expo in Charlotte several years ago to review and purchase an automated bus washer. Instead, Martin convinced me to have him demo the ACC unit. When he demo’d the unit we purchased immediately. That same unit is in service today washing almost 5,000 buses per year. We are now adding a 2nd wash bay and will purchase another ACC Eco-Power Brush soon.”

David R. Brown, Holiday Tours (customer since 2000)

“We have had our ACC Power Brush for going on 7 years, and we think it’s great! Simple and easy to use – you do not have to spend a lot of time training someone to use it, and just about anyone can use it. It is that easy! It works great for us and ours is in use everyday.”

Gary Agnes, Ramblin Express (customer since 1999 – 2 locations)
“Wash unit performs outstanding. One year of daily use in a 14 coach fleet and not one problem. Cleans very well. Extremely satisfied. Would sell a bus before I sell my washer.”
John Wilson, Crown Coach Wash (customer since 2004)

“I bought a new power brush in 1993 and we have been using it just about every day since then. It has been one of the best investments that I have ever made as it has worked for 12 years with very few parts needed to keep it going. I would recommend the power wash to anyone that has a fleet of buses to keep clean.”

Joseph H. Cyr, John T. Cyr & Sons, Inc. (customer sine 1993)

“We are using the ACC Eco-Power Brush in eighteen of our shops. They have been trouble free and our cleaning staff likes how they operate. This is the fastest and most efficient way to clean our fleet.”

Allen Lamers, Lamers Bus Lines Inc. (customer since 2000 – 18 locations)

“Brown Coach has been using the ACC Eco-Power Brush for over 5 years. During that period the brushes have been virtually trouble free. Any parts, service, or support needs we have had, have been promptly taken care of by ACC International. It has been a pleasure to work with them.”

Stephen Brown, Brown Coach, Inc. (customer since 2001 – 2 locations)

“Great! Don’t be without. Best in business.”

Lee Hilliard, Royal Tours (NC) (customer since 2002)

“Since we started using the ACC Eco-Power Brush wash system we have seen a 40% decrease in the time it takes to clean a coach. We have also seen a dramatic decrease in the water usage. Since using the bus wash our coaches have never looked as nice as they do now.”

Donald Burridge, Cavalier Coach Corp. (customer since 2000)

“The ACC system has saved us uncountable hours of cleaning time and does a better job than hand washing.”

Rusty Grudier, Brewster Travel (customer since 2000)

“Has run perfectly!”

Tim Heinze, Lake Crystal Coaches (customer since 2000)

Our  Brushes

The Awash standard brush is polyethelene. Each strand is 0.6mm; the finer the brush, the better its ability to clean fine crevasses. The cruciform shape of the strand allows a bead of soap and bead of water to sit in the crevasse for lubricity.

Maintaining the brushes is important

Polyethelene brushes last 10,000 to 15,000 washes or 5 years; once the cruciform wears out, the strand loses lubricity. A simple test of brush replacement is to measure existing from shaft to ends. A new brush is 16” long. Flagged ends offer a better finish for the final clean. Short brushes cause strain & stress on the motor or gearbox, leading to possible burn-out.

How do you know its time for a new brush?

The stands on a new brush will measure 16 inches.
The strands on a new brush will have flagged ends.
A worn brush may have flat ends on the strands.
A worn brush may also have curled ends on the strands.
