The LaserWash AutoXpress Offers Unique Features Designed to Help Improve Your Customer Satisfaction Index.

Standard & Key Features

Every LaserWash AutoXpress includes a corrosion-resistant bridge and trolley, the Smart 360™ Technology package (with Smart Networking, Smart Dwell®, Smart Arch Control, and Smart Cleaning System), automatic obstacle guidance, SST wall mounts, aluminum rails, PDQ's Virtual Treadle® bay loading, electrical control panels, a basic LED in-bay sign, and a General HP pump.

Some of the key features include:

  • Fast Wash Speed - up to 23 cars/hr
  • Accommodates All Production Vehicles, Including Dually Trucks
  • PDQ's staple Open Wash Bay - overhead design with no floor steel

Vehicle Positioning

c_open_wash_bayPDQ's most recognized innovation is the unparalleled Virtual Treadle. This electronic vehicle-sensing technology eliminates drive-on floor-mounted mechanisms, creating a wide open bay that makes it easy for anyone at your dealership to use for either drive-through or drive-in/back-out wash bays. With the open bay design the LaserWash AutoXpress can wash the largest SUV's, vans and full sized pickup trucks, including dually's.

Superior Cleaning System

c_autoxpress_high_pressureWith up to 1200 PSI water pressure, the AutoXpress provides the necessary cleaning power to remove stubborn dirt and debris in even the most hard-to-reach areas of the vehicle without the need for any brushes or cloth curtains touching your customer's new or serviced vehicle.

The advanced AutoXpress arch control system is able to rotate 360 degrees while simultaneously moving around the vehicle, providing fast and effective cleaning for all vehicle configurations.

The LaserWash AutoXpress has substantially faster wash speeds than comparable systems resulting in less waiting time for your customers to get their vehicles back from servicing. Providing a clean, road-ready vehicle is guaranteed to improve your Customer Satisfaction Index and give them what they want and deserve.

Lower Cost of Ownership

c_touchfree_cleaningAs car wash operating costs continue to rise, auto dealers are taking a much closer look at electrical, water, chemical and maintenance expenses to reduce their costs. The LaserWash AutoXpress was designed with this in mind: minimizing water requirements, reducing electrical consumption through the incorporation of variable frequency drives and lowering chemical usage by ensuring that the chemical is applied to the vehicle and not sprayed on the wash bay floor.

  • Easy loading process
  • Fast wash speeds with up to 23 vehicles per hour
  • Low fresh water consumption with as little as 21 gallons/wash
  • Touch-free washing eliminates brush contact with vehicles, minimizing damages
  • Cleans all production vehicles even your largest SUV's and trucks, including dually's
  • No hydraulic systems, which are prone to leaks
  • Simple design assists in lowering maintenance expenses
  • Local service for quick response and maximum up-time

Wash Activation

The rugged outdoor Dealer Code System is constructed with corrosion resistant aluminum that ensures maintenance-free operation and it is powered by solid state, low-voltage technology. The weatherproof keypad is positioned at an ergonomic height and distance from the vehicle which allows easy code entry. A multi-colored LED back-lit display acts as a visual guide to focus the user's attention on the keyboard and also signals "Please Wait" or "Wrong Code" when necessary. A built-in two-way intercom further aids user interaction with the terminal.

  • Low cost
  • rugged pedestal for outdoor use
  • Intuitive user-friendly keypad
  • 6 codes that can be easily assigned to different departments
  • Tracks the number of washes activated for each code used

There is no need to purchase costly tokens. This system has the capacity for up to six unique codes to activate the wash. Wash volumes can be tracked by department with the code usage report and counters can be reset at the wash operator's discretion.

PDQ offers a wide range of other activation devices for your car wash from simple ground loop hardware, photo eyes, code only systems to higher end terminals that can be tied into your lube bay to accept loyalty cards, codes, credit cards or cash.

Drying Options

The LaserWash AutoXpress can be partnered with a variety of drying options. PDQ offers a stand alone or frame mounted SwingAir Synchronized Motion Drying System, and MaxAir stand alone drying systems in either two or four producer configurations.

Frame-Mounted Dryers

c_SwingAir-2p-fmThe AutoXpress can be equipped with a 2-producer frame mounted SwingAir dryer, providing an effective low-cost drying solution that distributes high velocity air columns evenly across the vehicles surface.

c_frame-mounted-dryerThe AutoXpress can also be equipped with a 4-producer frame mounted MaxAir dryer, which utilizes concentrated air columns, air drafting and strategically positioned blowers to distribute high-velocity air to the vehicle's surface, providing one of the driest vehicles, every time.

Stand-Alone MaxAir Dryer

c_maxair_dryerAs with all PDQ equipment, the LaserWash AutoXpress can be paired with a MaxAir stand alone dryer in either four or six producer configurations. PDQ's MaxAir Stand-Alone Dryer is a breakthrough in dryer performance. MaxAir dries vehicles better than ever, yet uses less energy than conventional dryers.
