Westermann Honda Moss Brush WR870
The Westermann range of weed and moss brushes is the next generation alternative to pressure washing for both the commercial industry and domestic users. With German engineering and a Honda engine all backed by UK Distributors SPA Power Machinery.
HARD SURFACE MOSS REMOVAL
This powered wire brush will remove thick moss and light weeds from any hard surface. The clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation of the brush allows you to get into the cracks and crevices where the moss resides, without the use of harsh chemicals or water.
POWERED BY HONDA
Quality and performance come as standard in both Honda engine options. Day in and day out, professionals rely on the Honda GXV160 to deliver reliable, easy starting, fuel efficient performance. The Honda GCVx170 offers a slightly cheaper option, perfect for occasional use.
Manufactured in Germany, the belt driven machine comes with a jockey wheel situated underneath the brush that allows you to adjust the height of the bristles, enabling an aggressive or light brushing action. Thanks to the professional design, even on the most aggressive setting, the brush will not cause damage on block paving, tarmac and concrete. For more delicate surfaces we always recommend to carry out a test patch first.
