Mobile cleaning unit won’t break the bank

Home Business Management Cleaning & Shutdown Mobile cleaning unit won’t break the bank

THE recently launched Hawk Multi-Purpose Mini Drain Cleaning Trailer, positioned as a lightweight and affordable drain, roof and general cleaner, is already being used by a wide variety of small business owners looking to expand their horizons during lockdown.

That’s according to Melanie Mokawem, Director at Hawk, who said that for independent plumbers and cleaning services who are unable to lay out large sums of money for bigger trailers, this “mini” version allows them to expand their service offering without breaking the bank.

“Small businesses and entrepreneurs have felt the pressure more than anyone else during lockdown. But the desire to find new ways of making a living is widespread. We wanted to bring something to market that would specifically provide a tool that would allow these entrepreneurs to carve out opportunity – in urban and rural areas alike. The compact nature of the mini trailer makes it easy to take anywhere,” she said.

“The affordability makes it more accessible, even to sole proprietors and small start-ups. And it can be adapted to a huge variety of business uses. It’s a workhorse, designed with South African entrepreneurs in mind.”

The compact, trailer-mounted unit features a petrol-powered engine, a 30l/min at 200bar high-pressure pump, a 200l header tank and a hose reel with 30m of HP hose and a speciality drain cleaning nozzle. Also included is a gun, lance, and standard nozzle for surface cleaning.

Mokawem said the tool is lightweight enough to be towed by a domestic car and can be pushed by a single person into tight spots.

There is an even smaller version available for use as a mobile car wash unit. Various optional attachments are also available. These include a wide variety of specialty nozzles and accessories, storage reels, live hose reels or hydraulically operated reels with forward and rewind controls.
