Hot SalsaXCDS OverDrive™ 4.8 SalsaX
Clutch Drive Systems

The same rugged and reliable engineering that has made the CDS the most popular van powered system in the industry continues with the CDS 4.8 and 4.6 OverDrive. From arriving at the location, to being ready to clean carpet, unit activation is easy and fast.

Hot water and plenty of it.

Finally, a van-powered machine that can keep up with the heat exchanger slide-in units! HydraMaster engineers have perfected a new water heating system that keeps you in the heat - even when using 2 wands or a high-production tool like an RX-20™.

The SalsaX is the hottest direct-drive machine on the market! Available in either 4.8 or 4.6 models, the new CDS SalsaX produces working temperatures as high as *230°F.

If you've passed up owning a van-powered machine because you wanted the heat of a slide-in, then a SalsaX model is the right unit for you.
*As tested in 2002-2003 Ford installation. Other vehicles may vary.

Last-Step Chemical System

Equipped with HydraMaster's patented Chemical Pulse Pump, designed to withstand high temperatures and high pressures.Last-Step Chemical Injection means no chemical passes through the water pump or heat exchangers.

Space Savings

The CDS is designed to utilize the space between the driver's and passenger's seat, preserving valuable cargo space. This is made possible by employing a flexible drive shaft system. This drive system, and the positioning of the power pack and recovery tank, creates ideal weight distribution for greater passenger safety, vehicle handling and performance. Utilizing only 14" of space in a standard van, the CDS is a real Space-Saver.

Number One in User-Friendly Operation.

The simple elegance of the CDS has made it the choice of both independent operators and national cleaning franchises. The simple-to-use, easy-to-maintain CDS is well known in the cleaning industry for quick operator training, low maintenance and easy repair. Because the system uses the van's own engine, the CDS is far more dependable than any industrial engine-powered truckmount. Hinged panels and reachable component placement saves time and money.

New Revolutionary Blower Technology

The new 4005X (CDS 4.6) and 4007X (CDS 4.8) Tri-Lobe Blower, developed exclusively for HydraMaster by Tuthill provides increased displacement for high CFM, yet emits less disturbing noise than other blowers in the same category. While other blowers use grease fittings, the 4005X/4007X employs oil bath for greater unit life and less maintenance. [ More details...]
