    Truck Mount Comparison Chart
    Disclaimer:
    Changes in prices and equipment design subject to change without notice. Please check webpages for latest prices (prices change every month)
    Results on this page are only our best guess and to not represent actual testing results.
    Information to be used for entertainment purposes only.
    We have found in the world of pressure washing concrete, water volume (gpm / gallons per minutes) is just as important of as water pressure
    In vacuum systems, performance inches of lift or inches of mercury (HG) is just as important as cubic feet per minute.
    Heating BTU are important when laying on the cleaning trigger for high volume cleaning as in concrete cleaning, tile and grout, and dual wanding.
    Please also note that most factories post the max pressure and/or max CFM the component can produce not how it is being used. Example if a machine has vacuum blower that can produce 370 cfm at 3400 rpm but you design the truckmount to only turn the vacuum pump 3000 rpm, naturally it really does not offer 370 cfm.

    Each cc of displacement produces average of 134.26 BTU
    Vacuum Blower produce 89 BTU per cfm
    Engine coolant and Oil to water coolers produce an average 50,000 BTU each

    Summary:
    We naturally will a little investigating you can look up any branded truck mount or portable and do your own calculations.
    Some machines or customer might never be used for concrete cleaning, dual operator, tile cleaning, or other high pressure, high flow needs so the water pump cleaning speed might not play a factor, but as more buildings and homes transition to these surface types we feel it is an important factor in the purchase decision.
    Some factories might offer larger surface areas in their heat exchangers, this too could play a factor in performance.
    We have found in side by side performance start time to end temperature delivery time is enormously different between heat exchange systems verses diesel burner systems. Diesel heating systems reach top end temperatures in 60 seconds while heat exchange system can take a full 15+ minutes.
    Heat exchange system cost less to operate as they only burn one fuel for both cleaning and heating.
    Some examples are machine only, others include the hoses and wand, others include even reels, fresh water tanks, and even free trailers so it makes it hard to actually place all packages on the same paying field.
    Elevation plays a factor too which changes the air density and performance of vacuum and heating systems.
    Theoretical vacuum units might differ from actual vacuum units based on engine revolutions per minute and waste tank vacuum release system. As I was reading through the owners manuals of the different machines, I found that some factories state they set the vacuum release as low as 12 Hg / 163" of water lift while others will not post actual RPM so we have now way of knowing actual cubic feet per minute open air flow. We also found different charts that compared the inches of mercury to inches of water lift.
    We also see it is common practice for a factories to post water pump theoretical max specifications instead of how the machine performs based on rpm of the pump/machine in combination with max 'use' pressure of the heat exchanger, pressure regulator, and or safety pop off valve. Please note this is done on purpose, not the trick the consumer, rather to ensure the pump is working with ease. For example how long would a car last that had a top end speed of 140 mph, and all you do is drive it on the race track at 140 mph compared to the same car driving on the highway at 70 mph? Having a 2 to 1 service factor ratio ensure longevity of the design. In the chart above, should we post theoretical performance showing longevity or actual performance? It is possible to have one truck mount to have theoretical performance specifications posted while the next design is actual based on how the owners manual reads. This further complicates the comparison chart.
    If you have a truck mount model you want added to the above chart, please email us, and we will do our best to added and then email you back once complete.

    Portable Winners:
    In the two corded portable, the Goliath SBM-GO-500H Set is the highest performing machine at 56,860 Performance Units.
    Highest Performance Units: Goliath Complete Heat at 64,880 Performance Units
    Fastest: Goliath GO-1500 with 3150 cleaning unit speed, also the highest rated all-in-one tile cleaning machine that operates on 2 breakers.

    Notes:
    We have found in portable performance specs many, many factories fudge the truth about their inches of lift, cfm, and heat. We have to tread carefully as sometime posting the truth causes factories to pull our distributorship, or cause customers to wander, "Why are both the specs, and prices less on SteamBrite? They must have a cheaper, lower performing machines being built for them." This was causing customer to purchase off other websites. This is not the case, as our machine are coming off the same assembly lines as everybody else's. We now post whatever the factory states to post where it is the truth or not. Customer that spend time in our forums soon learn how to see through these posted errors as we provide the science of how true inches of lift, max hose length, water temperature performance can truly be calculated. Please email us if you find a mistake so we can post the correct information.
