The Intimidator has a clutch on the pump pulley that allows the pump to completely stop immediately after the trigger is released. This means that there is no heat buildup. Heat is the root cause of most pump failures.
Other pressure washers recirculate the bypass water through the pump again and again. Each time through the pump the water temperatures increase dramatically until they reach the critical temperature of 145 F in less than a minute.
Since the pump is not turning the engine is under no load. Engine/Pump life and endurance are increased! Clutch Control with lots of Stainless Steel, the best fuel filtration, a rugged 1-¼” square tubing frame, and industrial components make the Intimidator inexpensive to own and a pleasure to use.
