LFO 445 Wash Unit

DRIVE-THU TRUCK &
BUS WASH SYSTEM

The LFO for the drive-thru washing system for trucks and buses is Ceccato’s definitive solution for the cleaning and care of these vehicles…

LFO is a stationary unit, with a frame made of six hot dip galvanized columns, anchored to the floor.

The columns are connected together, longitudinally and crosswise, by hollow longerons along which all electric and pneumatic connections are running. All metallic frame parts and the hydraulic components are treated and protected against corrosion and rust; powder painting of the hot dip galvanised frame is available as option.

The LFO range of units is flexible and can meet every washing requirement; all units can be operated with recycled water.
