Belanger's DuraBlaster™ Wheel Cleaner is the industry's smoothest lateral-pivot wheel cleaner, engineered for reliable tracking, high-impact cleaning and pleasantly quiet operation. The reason for its steady tracking is the patent-pending mechanism, that converts pneumatic piston travel directly into rotary motion.

To ensure total coverage – including the sidewall and entire rim – the DuraBlaster™ uses twin stacked 8" diameter spinners per side, that together use 8 zero-degree nozzles to clean the wheel with multiple angles of attack.
