Yanmar diesel engines are being specified for the firefighting equipment and mine spec pressure cleaners manufactured by ThoroughClean.

Following the successful trial of the Yanmar L70N single cylinder air cooled diesel engine with the company’s firefighting units, ThoroughClean is now specifying the Yanmar L100N engine for their pressure cleaners to guarantee they meet mine specifications. Typically, the pressure cleaners pump at 3000 psi and deliver 15 litres of high pressure water per minute.

Harold Muller, General Manager of ThoroughClean explains that all their products are purposefully over-engineered and built to be strong so that they can deliver longevity without any compromise to performance. 

ThoroughClean has made a conscious change to the Yanmar brand for their mine spec equipment and firefighting units. 

Harold Muller says the Yanmar engines are very well accepted by their customers. ThoroughClean’s testing and development proved that the Yanmar LN Series engines were quieter than competitive products, an important consideration in the realm of OH&S requirements. He adds the Yanmar brand is also surprisingly price competitive, so the decision to change was easily made.

Power Equipment supplies the Yanmar LN Series diesel engines, which are then configured by ThoroughClean for each specific application. The Yanmar L70N displaces 0.32 litres and produces a maximum output of 6.7hp at 3600 rpm while the Yanmar L100N has a larger displacement at 0.44 litres and produces 10 hp at 3600 rpm. 

ThoroughClean’s assurance to customers is that diesel mine spec units can be towed to a mine site ex-factory and it will be allowed on site and put straight into service. 

ThoroughClean pressure cleaners are shipped to some of the biggest companies in mining and the hire and rental industry. It is therefore absolutely vital for reasons of product support that units operating in remote and harsh locations are reliable, dependable and durable, which is ensured with Yanmar L Series air cooled engines on board.

Power Equipment is the exclusive and authorised Australian, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and South Pacific distributor of Yanmar marine and industrial diesel engines, JCB DieselMax, MASE diesel marine generators, Gori high quality folding sailboat propellers, PSS shaft seals, Electromaax and Arctic steel products.
