Here at peak downs we purchased a HW1100G-MS (Mine Spec) Hotwash parts washer off you around 2 years ago & it’s a great asset to the maintenance team thanks again.
We were looking for a better way to clean and remove our small components of preservative oils, we had tried various means of doing this, but none of them were efficient and they left an oil residue which caused problems to get the paint to adhere when we tried to paint after cleaning. We found “Hotwash” and after several trials and demonstrations at the “Hotwash” premises with Jim the proprietor who devoted a significant amount of his time to us we managed to come up with the right formula relating to correct chemical, time and heat duration in the machine to suit our needs and clean our components enough to allow the paint to adhere. Further to this on some of our components, the chemical used even provided an anti-rust coating. Jim at “Hotwash” was kind enough to demonstrate and guide us through the process until we finally made the decision to purchase the “Hotwash” SS7870 stainless steel washing machine. We purchased the machine in August 2015 and since that time our cleaning has become clean and efficient to our needs and environmentally friendly, up to now apart from having to change the water and add chemical, the machine has worked and functioned well without any maintenance to date. We have been very happy to have purchased our machine from “Hot Wash” and has made cleaning easy and saved us money and kind to the environment.
Hi Jim, The machine has been in operation for a few years and feedback from all users is that it is performing very well and has proven to be extremely reliable.
“We have had our Hotwash for years now. We give it a pounding every day. We wash everything we can get our hands on. It saves us so much time and never lets us down. We could use 2 of them”.
“The Hotwash is very effective and the operators are very happy. Brilliant service. Thanks for everything, Steve.
“The washer purchased from back in 2013 has been brilliant. It has saved us so much time and money, not to mention downtime. We can no go ahead and order the parts we need while the Hotwash is doing its job. I could not believe how well the dirty parts came out. Most of the parts are submersible sewer pumps and they come out like new. Thanks for a great machine. We look forward to ordering our second one.
We have recently replace our Hot Caustic Tank with a new HT2000 Hotwash Tank. The HT2000 is very user-friendly and simple to use due to its automated features and safer environmental properties. Hotwash Australia provided excellent customer service support from purchase to installation and we would highly recommend Hotwash Australia.
“We bought a Hotwash machine because I had set up a new workshop and we were using a cut down D9 fuel tank outside to clean our parts in 46 degree temperatures. Now we own a Hotwash and my boys use it everyday and the cleaning results are amazing. Time saved is unbelievable and the quality of cleaning is second to none and the machine has performed perfectly over the last couple of years with only a couple of minor issues which were sorted by Jim in flash. Our major savings are no more kero and degreaser going through the oil separator and on to the settling pits, only clean tested water goes out for dust suppression. This machine has been a winner since the very first day and I would highly recommend one of these to anyone”

Just letting you know that we are more than happy with the unit.
Bought it in just before this year’s major outage and operated flawlessly throughout but better than that, the most dreaded job of cleaning couplings for inspection and crack test was only a case of putting into the unit and two runs and they were clean. That job was taking 2 men most of a shift to get clean enough for NDT. During the outage the other small manual parts washer that normally men are queuing up for was virtually abandoned. Thank–you for making our job much cleaner and easier.

We purchased a Hotwash Automatic Parts Washer because it was Australian made and we wanted a reliable machine. We’ve been using it for four years now and it has completely met our expectations.
It is well built, quiet and easy to maintain and has sped up the turn-around time on dirty jobs dramatically.
The service we receive from Hotwash is always prompt, friendly and very professional and the knowledgeable staff have responded to our questions quickly and satisfactorily.
The great cleaning power of the Hotwash chemicals means not only do we save time, but it keeps the staff clean and happy because they don’t have to hand wash dirty, greasy components.

Our Hotwash HW1400G was purchased after searching for a quality machine
with customer service.
Over three years later, there have been no problems with it and the machine is operating as good as the day we got it.
It is still regarded as a “mate” to all the staff who use it.
Would I recommend one? Absolutely!
Would we ever get rid of it? NO WAY!”

The Hotwash is very effective and the operations are very happy. Brilliant service, thanks for everything.
We are very happy with the new Hotwash. We thought manual washing was the norm until the Hotwash showed us how much time & money we have saved. We should have bought one 10 years ago.
We love the Hotwash. It cleans beautifully, we are very happy and we think it’s a ripper! We should have bought years ago. Thanks Hotwash.
We are very happy with the HW1200 Hotwash machine. It saves us time and money and it means we don’t have to be washing parts outside. It definately is a good thing.
The HW800 Hotwash is doing a great job and it runs virtually non stop 5 days a week. We are very happy with its performance. We are considering purchasing a second unit from you!
Hi guys. Happy to give you a recommendation and act as reference for you. The hotwash machine is in use every day and has not missed a beat. It saves us time and money and the boys wouldn’t be without it”. Peter Gerhard, Engineering Supervisor SICAME Australia, QLD
Hi Jim, Just sending a quick email about the Hotwash that you sold us. We have finally used it for our first major overhaul of our fillers. We managed to get two fillers and one corker stripped and overhauled over the Christmas break. The Hotwash has vastly improved the standard to which we clean parts and the time it takes to clean the parts. In the past we normally have 4 x TA’s cleaning all parts by hand which would take about 4 days. We managed to have all parts cleaned in one day which enabled us to complete two filler overhauls (filling heads & lifting feet) of which one filler contains 100 filling heads and the other has 72. As you will see from some photo’s attached the heads and feet have cleaned up really well and the added bonus of 90 degree temperature, we now sterilise our heads at the same time. We have set up our Hotwash with pallet tank at the back which we pump caustic in and out of to recycle as we need to rinse in citric acid as the stainless components can start to corrode so we are using the Hotwash to rinse as well. We are extremely happy with the reliability of the machine and are particularly impressed with the performance of the unit. We would highly recommend a Hotwash machine to anyone who has a workshop that needs to improve their parts cleaning productivity and reduce costs.
“The new HW1400G Hotwash has arrived and we are working it very hard. We are really impressed with its cleaning ability.”
Ben Morgan, Workshop Manager, Adelaide Electric Motors:
“The HW800 Hotwash is working extremely well and we are very happy. The machine is fit for purpose and made well too. Good Australian quality hey! I also appreciate your customer service. One won’t be kept informed like this from other companies, I can tell you. Keep it up. It means a lot.”
Ian Duke, Director, Letaba Industrial Pumps South Africa:
“The HW1200G is a great time and money saver. It is very fast and the quality of construction is very high. We are very happy with our investment!”
Larry Wilson, Director, Mt Isa Diesel:
“We have the new Hotwash HW1400G up and running and it is very fast and performing well. The boys love it!”
