New PTO-powered pressure washer launches

V-Tuf will showcase its tufJET IBC cleaner available in petrol, diesel and hydraulic powered options at this year’s Cereals. It’s a pressure washer mounted on a 1,000-litre tank so you can literally clean anywhere, the company says.

The new tufJET PTO-powered pressure washer has a maximum pressure of 300Bar at 30 litres per minute. The multiplier gearbox means you can run it at 540rpm, saving fuel on your tractor, and it can also suck out of an IBC or a water tank, the company says.

Additionally, the V-Tuf GCX and ATX ranges are some of the company’s most powerful and robust vacuum cleaners.

The GCX range all come with 50mm bore hose and accessories to allow large volumes of dust and debris to flow to the tank of the machine and reduce blockages and downtime. They also have cyclonic filtration that allows the filters to stay cleaner for longer. These have Hepa filters fitted protecting the motors from fine dust that causes the motors to burn out or catch fire.

The ATX range of vacuum cleaners are equipped with a powerful brushless motor that allows you to work quickly and vacuum very fine dust, providing an extra level of protection where needed.

The company is also exhibiting its range of DIY professional pressure washers made from tough plastic and metal. It will bring a selection from its large range of industrial hot and cold pressure washers, electric and engine-driven pressure washers. These are also made from tough stainless steel and brass components.

25 years’ experience 

The company says it has 25 years of experience delivering robust, powerful and tailormade cleaning solutions.  Cleaning makes things look better, but good hygiene is essential for the health and well-being of people, livestock, and your yield. Hygiene and dust control are two operations of vital importance for today’s modern farm. V-Tuf says it offers a highly diverse range of robust pressure washers and vacuums that can be exactly matched to any and all cleaning and dust extraction jobs in today’s farming and agricultural businesses.

V-Tuf pressure washers

V-Tuf is part of The Fenco Group Ltd, a business started in 1999 by a father and son team, Carl and Conrad Buchner. They originally began by wholesaling commercial pressure washers and dust vacuums. The machines were manufactured in the Far East and Europe. By 2008 having accumulated a wealth of knowledge and feedback from customers it was clear there was a definite need and market desire for machines that were far more robust, longer lasting, and fully serviceable and to move away from box purchasing and discarding to having more bespoke machines that could be maintained for years and matched very closely to the required job at hand. 

So, in 2008 Fenco started manufacturing the V-Tuf range. Much of this was in the UK as well as continuing to utilise the Far East and Europe, a process that still works well today with nearly all the assembly being done here in the UK. This allows V-Tuf to focus on better manufacturing processes and customer satisfaction. It is very much a family business with three generations working together on the same mission.

In the early days the company’s principal markets were construction, automotive and transport. However, in recent years, agriculture has become a significant part of its business. More than most, farmers need machinery that is reliable, robust, and fully serviceable – all boxes that V-Tuf says it ticks.

Stand out from the crowd 

According to the company, what sets the V-Tuf range apart from the rest is its robustness, longevity and the national backup service that it provides. V-Tuf has been designed with consumers to ensure that it meets their needs precisely. The range includes some 410 machines and accessories. The company’s experts can assemble the right kit to make your cleaning challenge simple. Sales backup is “second to none” with some 6,000 parts on hand, backed up by a nationwide network of engineers. V-Tuf is passionate about sustainable cleaning and has a busy R&D team that focuses on applying the latest technology to increase efficiency and reduce waste. 

The range is currently available through a number of agricultural stores such as Carrs Billington, Farmstar, Sharmans and Agri-Linc. Other national outlets include Cromwell’s, Screwfix, Machine Mart, Speedy Hire, and HSS. However, feel free to contact the head office in Lincoln to discuss your needs and the best solution for you.

V-Tuf’s dealer network is expanding all the time and it is always keen to hear from companies who want to become a dealer.
