The new Snap-on® PBC58 Heavy-Duty Automatic Parts Washer can be used to effectively clean many large automotive parts such as gas and diesel engine blocks, cylinder heads, valve covers, pans, transmission cases, as well as smaller items down to nuts and bolts. It is well-suited for a variety of shops and industries, including automotive and diesel shops, marine and powersports dealers, and manufacturing, aviation, agriculture, metal fabrication, industrial trade and technical schools.

"An effective parts washer is vital for shops that service newer, larger six-cylinder fuel efficient diesel engines," says Michael DeKeuster, a Snap-on Tools product manager. "The PBC58 powerfully dissolves the hard-to-reach dirt and grime that may be baked onto parts after continuous use and is essential for parts that cannot be thoroughly cleaned through a manual process. Technicians can use this heavy-duty parts washer to automate the cleaning process for several tools simultaneously, saving valuable work time."

The PBC58 automatically cleans parts using a biodegradable aqueous soap concentrate (YADW896B) that heats to 45 PSI and sprays from 24 high-pressure nozzles at 42 GPM. Its five RPM turntable is driven by a #40 roller chain for rotation without slippage, and it pulls out 18" for easier part loading. Both the sprocket drive and turntable motor have dual-sealed bearing shafts for longevity and strength.

The washer can accommodate a load capacity up to 1,000 lb., and its cycle time can be adjusted from zero to 60 minutes. An integral oil skimmer and pump reservoir filter is included to remove oil and grease, and a double intake filtration system traps sludge with a perforated steel screen filter. Manufactured in the United States, the PBC58 is ruggedly constructed from 12-gauge steel with solid welded seams.
