Smart DIY en­thu­si­ast and con­trac­tors that use pres­sure wash­ers are look­ing for a sim­ple, no fuss unit that will cut clean­ing times. Aus­tralian Pump recog­nised the need for a com­pact pow­er­ful and por­ta­ble pres­sure cleaner with pro­fes­sional per­for­mance with­out break­ing the bank.

They have re­leased a new sin­gle phase high pres­sure washer that is claimed to get clean­ing jobs done faster, safer and more eco­nom­i­cally. Called the “Aussie Black Box”, the por­ta­ble, sin­gle phase ma­chine is a pro blaster for the price of a do­mes­tic unit.

Built to Aussie Pump’s stan­dards, in Europe’s fore­most pres­sure cleaner plant, the Black Box de­liv­ers 2,000 PSI and 8 lpm flow.

The Aussie Black Box is com­pact and easy to man­age, ideal for tradies and com­mer­cial wash down ap­pli­ca­tions. It of­fers the heavy duty fea­tures of a more ex­pen­sive pro­fes­sional unit. The mo­tor is a sin­gle phase 2.6kW, 1450 RPM, slow speed 4 pole in­duc­tion mo­tor with in­te­grated ther­mal pro­tec­tion. It runs off a nor­mal 10 amp plug.

The pump end is a close cou­pled triplex pump made to the high­est Euro­pean stan­dards. That means it in­cludes ce­ramic pis­tons, a brass head and an in­te­grated pres­sure gauge and ther­mal dump. The ther­mal dump pro­tects the ma­chine from be­ing run con­tin­u­ously with the gun shut. High qual­ity ac­ces­sories in­clude an 8 me­tre wire braid hose, pro gun, Vario lance and bonus turbo lance.

The Vario lance en­ables the op­er­a­tor to ad­just the pres­sure of the jet from high to low and the spray an­gle with just a twist of the wrist. The bonus turbo lance is used for stub­born stain re­moval. It uses a ro­tat­ing pin jet noz­zle to in­crease the ef­fec­tive work­ing pres­sure of the pump to 3,400 psi.

What makes the Black Box truly ver­sa­tile is the num­ber of high pres­sure ac­ces­sories that en­able users to tackle a range of clean­ing chores fast with the min­i­mum amount of water.

These in­clude the unique Aussie Tri-Kleener for fast clean­ing of paths and kerbs. It at­taches in place of the lance. Its three noz­zle jets work si­mul­ta­ne­ously to give a streak-free fin­ish three times faster than us­ing a sin­gle lance. The user can se­lect the noz­zle height with a sim­ple ratchet sys­tem, to con­trol splash­back and ap­plied pres­sure. Easy to ma­noeu­vre, the Aussie Tri-Kleener can clean right into cor­ners, around ob­sta­cles and into tight spa­ces.

For the DIY en­thu­si­ast and con­trac­tors look­ing for mo­bil­ity the Aussie Black Box can be mounted to an espe­cially con­fig­ured steel trol­ley. The two- wheeled trol­ley can be fit­ted with an op­tional hose reel with a 15 me­tre wire braid high pres­sure hose. The reel fa­cil­i­tates stor­age of the long length hose, re­duces the associated trip haz­ard, and pro­tects it from abra­sion.
