The trailer-mounted KamJet 10000 high-pressure water system from German-based Kamat and adapted to the U.S. market by Giant Industries is designed to deliver up to 50,750 psi/7.1 gpm. Powered by a 150 hp Deutsch diesel engine, the compact direct-drive unit can be remotely operated and offers stepless pressure regulation.

The jetter has a 105-gallon water tank and 45-gallon fuel tank. It weighs 5,511.5 pounds and measures 185 inches long, 72.8 inches wide and 76.8 inches high. Designed for long life, it has a high-pressure Kamat plunger pump, stainless steel manifold, tungsten carbide plungers and synthetic seals. It is fully enclosed for quiet operation and equipment protection.

A key feature is a large enclosure, says Ed Simon, president of Giant Industries. “The idea behind that is twofold,” says Simon. “One is to reduce the sound. The decibel level at pressure before the nozzle is about 83 decibels. It’s quiet-running. You don’t hear a big diesel engine. The other idea is to protect the engine and the other components from the environment.” The locked enclosure also provides additional storage for tools.

Safety features include automatic shutdown when the water pressure (after the filter) is less than 15 psi, when oil pressure is less than 36 psi, or when the oil temperature is above 203 degrees F. Other features include automatic tank-fill system, float for automatic drain air/water separator, second automatic valve for air tools, intuitive control panel with touchpad controls, and easy access to all maintenance items. 419/531-4600;
