New Pressure Washers from Daimer Industries® with Wet-Sandblasting

Daimer Industries

New Super Max™ multi-mode sandblasting machines also offer heated cleaning for other applications.

Woburn, MA (PRWEB) August 17, 2009 -- Daimer Industries, Inc.®, a major supplier and worldwide exporter of commercial cleaning products, introduced two industrial pressure washers featuring wet sandblasting systems, the Super Max™ 12500 GE WS and 12500 PE WS. The new tri-mode, fuel-powered power washers can use cold-water for wet sandblasting situations and hot-water or steam for other applications

"These new commercial pressure washers are fuel-powered so they offer not only top performance, but maximum mobility," said Matthew Baratta, Daimer.com spokesman. "The machines are ideal for removing rust, corrosion and the toughest deposits, plus that offer heated cleaning for non-sandblasting applications."

Sandblasting Technology

The wet sandblasting features bundled with these power washers consists of a flexible 15-foot sand pickup tube, sand point and a venturi head, which creates a uniform blast pattern and increases the sand's velocity. The wet sandblasting systems can be used with a variety of sand grit sizes and different media, such as baking soda and small plastic pellets.

Because these wet sandblaster systems use high pressure washer, the machines are safer than units employing compressed air, which requires the user to wear special breathing apparatus.

Retrofitting a Factory Toyota Elocker


The Toyota electric locker was an easy choice for me. I could pick one up for $400 used from a junkyard and make the controller for a few bucks. If the power is lost on the elocker, it will still be locked, and can be manually unlocked at any time.

In order to install the elocker, several modifications have to be made to the axle housing. These modifications are explained in great detail on several other websites, so I'm not going to go into great detail. Read these web pages and then continue reading this.

Suspension install on 3rd gen 4Runner (96-02)


Front install:

My front setup includes OME 881 heavy duty coil springs, Cornfed 2" aluminum spacers, and Bilstein heavy duty shocks.

First thing you should do is spray all the bolts with some PB blaster. This stuff works wonders on stuck and rusted bolts. Just spray it and let it sit for a few minutes. Makes life easier.

Then raise the vehicle up and support it on jack stands. Make sure to lift it high enough that you can droop the lower a-arm assembly down far enough that it doesn't hit the ground. Then remove the wheels.
