First-of-its-kind radiator cleaning wands introduced
The Radiator Genie , a recently launched radiator cleaning tool, is designed to clean out every nook and cranny of a machine’s cooling system.

Today’s tractors have high-efficiency cooling systems, downsized radiators and small cores and fins. The radiator, A/C cooling coils and hydraulic coolers are all sandwiched in a confined space. Nothing on the market can reach into these confined areas.

However, this product’s pinched-down fan head is designed to fit into the engine’s cowl and between fan blades, where it can be positioned at the correct angle to blow directly through the radiator coils and exert maximum pressure to the back side of the radiator for a thorough cleaning.

This product is a pair of 18-inch wands for air and water rated for 135 pounds of pressure. PD
