The Project

Cleaning of vehicles using a Washdown Pit

The Problem

In limited spaces numerous vehicles require a washdown from the top to the undercarriage of the chassis in preparation for an MOT.

Solution

The features of a washdown pit include a large built in settlement tank with wier, a flow forge floor and hose connections.  This style pit allows a vehicle to be washed above and below at the same time, saving on time and space in the workshop.  Wash ramps are also available in the washdown range.

Outcome

It allows the customer to prepare all vehicles for MOT ‘s as well as routine cleaning efficiently.
