Andy Guest Jetters is excited to introduce the 5-Series van-pack to its range of high-performance diesel jetting machines. Replacing the popular 4-Series as its most powerful jetter, the new machine meets all Stage V emissions regulations while maintaining the ability to tackle the most demanding of drainage tasks.

Officially launching at the National Drainage Show from 23-24 November, the 5-Series is powered by a best-in-class Yanmar 4-cylinder common rail diesel engine and triplex plunger pump. Delivering 3000psi @16gpm performance, it is capable of cleaning and unblocking pipelines with a diameter of up to 350mm.

At the forefront of the machine’s development have been current and future environmental standards, with Yanmar’s direct-injection technology reducing emissions while increasing the engine’s fuel economy and power output.

Jon Woods, UK Sales Manager at Andy Guest, says that the introduction of such regulations, coupled with demand for high-specification jetters, were the driving forces behind the new machine.

“Meeting the emissions guidelines while maintaining the same level of quality and high performance that our customers know and trust has been the priority with the 5-Series. Our larger machines have always been some of our most popular, and we are delighted to expand our range of Stage V diesel machines further, following the successful launch of the new-specification 2-Series earlier this year.”

“It’s also the most advanced jetter we’ve built, with new features such as the smart display screen mounted on the electronic control panel that provides real-time engine information at a glance. We’re delighted to be launching at the National Drainage Show and are excited to demonstrate the new machine to those attending.”

Improved Performance, Reliability, and Efficiency

The new 5-Series is powered by a Yanmar 4TNV88C vertical water-cooled power unit that utilises direct-injection technology to determine optimum working conditions, deliver maximum combustion efficiency, and improve fuel economy.

Named the cleanest in its category, the engine also includes an automatic Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to prevent particulate matter from leaving the machine and entering the environment. This system is becoming ever-present in modern drain jetters and also ensures that the engine’s power output remains constant in all operating environments.

John Woods says that alongside the Stage V regulations, reduced weight, smaller dimensions, and ease of use have also been key considerations in the design of the 5-Series:

“Due to its compact frame, the jetter can be fitted in most mid-size drainage vehicles, such as the Transit Custom, whilst still maintaining space for ancillary equipment and tools. Switching from a traditional radiator to a heat exchanger has further reduced weight, while the ability to convert the jetter into a bespoke stack and split configuration makes it ideal for installation in CCTV and multipurpose vans.

“The machine is supplied with a hydraulic drive HP reel, a range of nozzles and 90 metres of lightweight single-wire jetting hose as standard. Frost protection and anti-freeze valves are also

included, while customers can further take up the option of adding our five-channel plug-and-play radio remote system for efficient single-person operation.

“The 5-Series is a high-performance, feature-rich jetter for the toughest drainage tasks, and we are delighted to have developed a powerful, regulations-compliant machine compact enough to be fitted in smaller commercial vans.”

Andy Guest Jetters will be exhibiting at the National Drainage Show at the ExCeL in London from 23-24 November alongside sister company Rioned at stands C80 and C84.
