Tornador Cleaning Gun:
The game changer!

"There is not an industry in the world that has not been profoundly impacted with advances in modern technology; the Tornador cleaning gun is just that for the professional world of detailing"

What is the Tornador Gun? A highly effective tool used to clean virtually any surface or any material found within or without on a car for the detailing process.

How does it work: Compressed air is fed through a fine tip that oscillates at a high RPM (revolutions per minute) rate contained within a coned nozzle. With its high quality plastic bottle attachment, it can also allow water or other chemicals to be introduced into the air stream for additional cleaning capabilities. The high speed and pressure of the compressed air breaks up dirt and debris allowing for quicker, easier, and more effective cleaning.

Do I need an air compressor to run this tool: Yes. And since it uses a substantial amount of air, it is important to make sure the air compressor can deliver sufficient air to get full benefits of this amazing tool. (see manual for specific requirements)

Air Compressor to Operate the Tornador

Once you have decided on the Tornador gun as your go-to cleaning and detailing tool, the very next question I hear is this:

"Darren, what is the best air compressor to use with the Tornador cleaning gun?"

Requirements: The Tornador cleaning gun has minimum operating requirements:

You can see owners manual for specifics, but the air compressor I chose below represented the winning combination for me:

  • The winning combination of size and power requirements.
  • I chose the horizontal model so it would fit inside my van.
  • If you have the budget and room for a bigger compressor it would be nice, but certainly not necessary.
  • I chose a Craftsman at first, but was very disappointed in the build quality that became very clear upon simple assembly requirements. I went with the DeWalt as I have always been very pleased with the DeWalt tools I have and continue to use.
  • You can use a smaller compressor so long as it meets the minimum operating requirements, but the trade-off will be your compressor running out of air very quickly and will have to cycle on and off very frequently.

Darren's Professional Tips

If you are working on a budget and trying to establish your professional detailing business on a shoe-string budget, then this tool is not likely to make it one your list of must haves. After all, I was able to make it without this tool for the past 25 years professionally; me and every other detailer in the world!

But if you do have the budget and you are looking to deliver serious professional grade results, especially when it comes to cleaning fabric car upholstery of every kind, then this might be a must have.
