“This is an excellent machine. Very easy to handle and low maintenance. My trailers never leave the yard dirty, which would not happen without this washer.”
John Korman, Eickhoff Enterprises (customer since 2001)

“We’ve had the machine for nineteen years, washing 40 trailers per week and have had no trouble with it. We are very satisfied!”

Alan A. Laufer, Laufer Trucking, Inc. (customer since 1998)
“I have worked in the trucking business for the past 35 years and have done every job imaginable. The job I hated most was washing trailers with a bucket of soap, water, and a brush. The moment I saw the Eco-Power Brush demonstrated I knew we needed one. There are certain products in the trucking business that sell themselves and I believe your Eco-Power Brush is one of those. If you ever see one of our 150 Reefer trailers on the road dirty, call me.”
Jerry Morehouse Jr., W.N. Morehouse Truck Line, Inc. (customer since 1998)

“Awash has produced a machine that not only improved our wash efficiency on trailers, but also cut labor costs. Their machine is backed by an experienced and dedicated support staff, who have helped us achieve our ultimate goal of customer satisfaction.”

Kent Moore, XVIII Wheeler Truck Washes (customer since 2000 with 5 locations)
“In September 2004 we purchased the Eco-Power Brush and it’s one of the best investments we have made. We haven’t had a single problem with the machine or complaints that units weren’t washed properly. Compared to manual cleaning the Eco-Power Brush has improved our productivity immensely, washing time has been cut by two-thirds. I can’t say enough about the Eco-Power Brush, as our company image is very important to us. Our fleet is a moving advertisement and if the truck and trailer look good so does our image.”
Daren Novak, J & R Hall Transport (customer since 2004 with 3 locations)

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.
