The Sapphire 270 SS measures 41cm wide x 86 cm high x 101cm long, but don’t let the very small physical size fool you. This revolutionary unit actually exceeds competitors’ cleaning performance with a machine console only half the size.

Power Plant

The heartbeat of this pocket rocket is the 18 hp V-Twin Overhead valve Briggs and Stratton motor. Briggs and Stratton is the world’s largest manufacturer of air-cooled engines. 

This particular motor has an ‘Oil Guard’ low oil shutdown system that significantly reduces the chance of engine damage due to insufficient lubrication. It also has a dura-bore cast iron cylinder sleeve, which assures you as the owner long engine life and improved oil control. This model Briggs and Stratton motor not only has a die cast aluminium block, but also exhibits low vibrations, lower emissions, improved valve life and importantly, better fuel consumption than ever before.

Energetic and quick starting, this 18 hp V-Twin features a number of advanced technologies and integrated components that are proven to elevate the reliability standard, allowing you to keep cleaning for many years with minimal down time.

High Pressure Water Pump

Providing the 1500 psi of heated water pressure is the legendary CAT 3CP triplex pump. It also has last-step chemical injection to which maximizes pump performance. This pump is not only high pressure, but also high flow – running 4.3 GPM, which is much higher than most truckmounts run. This pump also has Hot Dry seals installed to help prevent premature seal degradation. It has an electric clutch to turn the pump on and off therefore not running the pump and belts unnecessarily.

 The heavy-duty, high-strength drive-end construction used on the 3CP pump that is on the Sapphire Scientific 270 SS assures you will receive long life from your pump. CAT pumps compact pump design, easy mounting to belt-drive, quiet, energy-efficient operation and low maintenance make these specially designed carpet and tile cleaning pumps the most economical and reliable for use in your truckmount!

The Vacuum Blower

The Gardner Denver Sutorbilt positive displacement bi-lobe blowers that is used in this truckmount is 3LL which produces 270 CFM at 13” Hg. . Each Sutorbilt vacuum blower that is installed is individually tested to meet rigorous performance specifications that are specific to the carpet and hard surface cleaning industry.

Technical Information

How does a vacuum blower work? Two figure-eight impellers turn in opposite directions within a machined housing. They transfer a constant volume of air from the inlet to the exhaust with every rotation. These rotating components are held in a very close tolerance and do not contact each other, thus generating vacuum. The impellers positioning is maintained by precision timing gears affixed to each impeller shaft Combine the above mentioned components with complete temperature control, you can ensure optimal results on every carpet cleaning, upholstery, tile & grout and flood extraction job. This space-saving unit is not only built to clean, it’s built to last. The Sapphire 270 SS truckmount has fewer parts than any comparable unit for more reliable service and easier maintenance, and with its exclusive short-reach service design, all serviceable parts are within 20 cm of the unit’s exterior. The Sapphire’s high-strength frame reduces vibration, which can wear down the unit over time. The frame’s unique design also helps extend drive belt life by directing cool air over the belts during operation.
