While at this year’s NRCC, be sure to stop by the various manufacturers’ booths to hear more about their latest products, such as those recently featured in past issues of Professional Carwashing & Detailing, including:
Auto Glanz Solutions introduces the AGS Pro 100, a stand-alone industrial vacuum made from durable stainless steel for the express carwash market. The vacuum uses a 3.8-horsepower motor and draws 4.5 amps of electricity per unit. It features a heavy-duty, pillow-like filter system, which filters out dust and dirt that can be washed and cleaned, and a 25-gallon, roll-out dirt bin with a self-contained garbage bag. Secondary emptying containers are unnecessary, eliminating airborne dust.
