|System 2000 Pad Washer for Professional Rotary Polishers|
This the only all-inclusive pad washing system you can buy! Clean all types of polishing pads without hand-scrubbing or spurring.
For most detailers, clean-up is the only part of the detailing process that isn’t particularly enjoyable. If you’re the type of person that likes to polish by machine, why would you want to clean the pads by hand?!
The System 2000 Pad Washer is just for you. It’s an automated pad washer that uses the motion of your polisher to clean the pads. As the pad spins on the polisher, agitator wheels inside the unit turn and extract polishes and waxes from deep within the foam. There are 9 wheels in all and each wheel has teeth that spur the pad as its being cleaned. Every pad will come out clean and supple!
The System 2000 Pad Washer comes with a packet of Snappy Clean pad cleaning powder. It dissolves in water to make an excellent cleaner and degreaser right inside the bucket. This cleaning solution will help release products that are caked inside the pad as it spins on the agitators. Between this and the agitators, dirty pads don’t stand a chance.
The bonus feature of the system is that you can actually spin pads dry within the unit. The System 2000 is housed inside a 5 gallon bucket so sling off is fully contained inside the bucket. Once the pad is clean, lift the polisher so that the pad is out of the water. Continue running the polisher for 15 seconds to remove the majority of water.
The System 2000 Pad Washer is a clever approach to cleaning pads. It consists of a bucket, a lid, and an interior pad cleaning plate. The plate is part of a large structure that simply holds the plate up at the correct level. This plate houses the 9 agitator wheels.
The lid of the System 2000 has two covers that close around the polisher to keep all the sling-off inside the unit. All the parts are made of heavy duty plastic held together with stainless steel screws. The bucket is just the catch pan for all of the residue that comes out of the pads. The entire unit can be disassembled for easy cleaning.
Here’s how the System 2000 Pad Washer works:
The System 2000 Pad Washer works best with circular (rotary) polishers. It accommodates all types of pads, including foam, wool, and double-sided pads.
- Pour the Snappy Clean into the bucket with 3-4 gallons of water. The water level should be high enough that the pad is mostly submerged during cleaning, but low enough that you can lift the pad out of the water to spin it dry.
- Place the dirty pad (while attached to the polisher) into the opening in the lid. Close the covers around the polisher.
- Press the pad flat against the pad cleaning plate. Set the speed of the polisher to between 1500 and 2000 RPM.
- Turn the polisher on at a low speed and slowly move the polisher in a circular motion. If the agitator wheels are not moving, use less pressure.
- To dry the pad, rest the belly of the polisher on the cradle located just below the opening on the lid. Tilt the polisher up so the pad is out of the water. Let it continue spinning for 15 minutes.
Every polisher is a little different so the System 2000’s pad cleaning plate is adjustable. Make it taller or shorter, depending on how deep the pad sits inside the bucket. Remember, there should be enough space between the pad cleaning plate and the lid to spin the pad dry. The height of the pad cleaning plate is factory set at 3 inches below the lid. To adjust the height, remove the screws from the legs and reinsert them at the preferred height.
To disassemble the unit for cleaning, flip the two plastic housing clamps out (these are located on each side of the lid). Lift the lid off. Grab the pad cleaning plate by the two triangular holes and lift it out of the bucket. Now you can rinse all the components of the System 2000 Pad Washer.
The System 2000 Pad Washer cleans pads with the power of your polisher. No more scrubbing and spurring by hand. That’s the old-fashioned way. Let your polisher do the work for you!
