Makita expands pressure washer range

• 100 and 110 bar models with 240v motors.
• Lightweight designs and low noise in operation.
• Self-priming system with suction hose facility.

Makita has added two further pressure washers to its range that spans the 100-140 bar capacities.

The new Makita HW1200 model has a regular operating pressure of 100 bar with a maximum pressure capacity of 120 bar, and a maximum delivery rate of 420 litres per hour. The Makita HW1300 with electrical 2-pressure settings, has regular operating pressure settings of 110 bar on Hi and 80 bar on Lo. A similar 450 litre per hour flow rate is available from the HW1300 which has a maximum operating pressure of 130 bar with delivery controlled by a front mounted rotary switch. Both are powered by series motors for performance and reliability and are supplied with a 10m delivery hose and pressure adjustable spray lance. The HW1300 has an integrated hose reel.

These new Makita pressure washers feature a self-priming pump operation, enabling them to be used with water supplied from a tank or water butt, simply by immersing a self-suction supply hose (supplied separately) into the water source. The traditional mains water hose supply connection is located at the front of the washer. These lightweight washers are quiet in operation, double insulated for safety, come complete with a 5m power cord and can be used with water at up to 40°C.
