HydraMaster has developed a free website portal to help cleaning and restoration companies find the right van for their businesses. It includes direct links to nationwide U.S. inventory searches for cargo including Chevy, GM, Ford, RAM and Mercedes. The portal also provides guidance on how to use and navigate the websites, including a supporting “how-to” video and a list of things for visitors to consider.
The new offering is aimed to help cleaning and restoration businesses more easily identify cargo vans amid a supply shortage. HydraMaster said the demand for direct drive truck mounts is higher than ever due to expanding small engine emission restrictions in California. "Direct Drive truckmounts are most often installed in new or virtually new cargo vans and are currently limited to installation only in Chevy Express, GMC Savana, or Ford Transit cargo vans. Slide-in users who want to expand often still want to do it with a new van rather than a used high mileage van. But when cleaning and restoration companies are going to their normal fleet source for their next van, whether it be inside or outside of the industry, they are often finding that their regular source has no vans available."
For over 45 years HydraMaster has been a manufacture of truck-mounted equipment. HydraMaster truck mounts are designed to provide consistent high heat, powerful water recovery, and withstand the abuse of multiple operators. In 2009, HydraMaster became part of Nilfisk, a manufacturer of cleaning equipment.
