New Cyclone 4500 from Advance: industry’s first rider pressure washer offers outdoor cleaners increased productivity, better results


Unique water-recovery system reclaims and recycles water, which minimizes water consumption and aids in stormwater runoff compliance

MINNEAPOLIS – The Cyclone™ 4500 rider pressure washer from Advance introduces a new level of productivity for cleaning outdoor surfaces. As the industry’s first ride-on pressure washer, Cyclone delivers the power of a pressure washer without the hassle of dragging around hoses and equipment or the need to remove standing water after cleaning. The machine’s closed-loop system reclaims and filters water used during the cleaning process, minimizing water consumption and contribution to stormwater runoff. Ideal for parking garages, sidewalks, open-air malls, airports, and other areas with concrete or other hard surfaces, the Cyclone 4500 reduces cleaning time and labor, doesn’t require detergents or chemicals, and leaves behind only a clean surface that dries quickly and is ready for immediate use.


“The Cyclone 4500 is truly a revolutionary approach to high-pressure surface cleaning,” says Sara Thurston, market manager for Advance. “Due to its fully integrated rider platform, we’ve seen customers replace eight traditional pressure washers with one Cyclone while significantly reducing cleaning time and labor.”


The machine’s unique closed-loop system captures and recycles the water used during cleaning. Cyclone’s patented cleaning and recovery head spins at a high enough speed to create a lift that reclaims the used water, which is filtered, recycled and reused. “The water recovery system also helps outdoor cleaners comply with environmental regulations, such as the Clean Water Act and EPA regulations for stormwater runoff,” adds Thurston. “And because Cyclone recycles the water it uses, it significantly reduces the total amount of water used in cleaning.”


The Cyclone rider pressure washer excels on level and uneven surfaces alike as a result of its cast aluminum cleaning and recovery head, which lowers straight down to within a quarter-inch of the ground. Featuring a 34-inch cleaning path, Cyclone delivers the force of 160-degree F water and 4,000 pounds per square inch of pressure for deep, consistent cleaning without chemicals, even for such applications as environmental cleanup and spill recovery.


The Cyclone 4500 is designed to be easy to operate and maintain, offering convenient access to machine components. It cleans expansive areas in less time than traditional walk-behind pressure washers and is easy to maneuver alongside curbs and around corners with its standard power steering.   Additionally, the machine can be transformed from a surface cleaner to a curb cleaner or a hand-wand cleaner with a simple turn of a lever.


Advance is a brand of Nilfisk-Advance, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of high-quality commercial and industrial floor maintenance equipment. For more information on the new Cyclone rider pressure washer, call (763) 745-3500 or visit
