Automatic Bus Washer – Smartwash Jumbo

ATS ELGI has launched an automatic bus washer that meets the high demand from commercial workshops as they increasingly adopt automation to improve productivity and lower dependence on human resources.

The product is ideal for washing of all types of both buses. It is capable of washing buses up to 15 metres in length, 2.9 metres in width and metres in height.

The product is set to dramatically improve the efficiency of workshops. At present, it takes at least 4-5 staff and 15-30 minutes to wash a bus manually. Manual washing of a bus also consumes 400-600 litres of water.

Now, with the automatic bus washer, a workshop can accomplish the task in 4-7 minutes with only 100-250 litres of water and reduced staff.
