    Friction or Touchless? What do customers want?

    Negative Ad posted by Chemical Guys on Facebook

    In bay brush automatics

    Autec hands down. We have 3 AES-425 units and these machine are top quality, consistent and extremely reliable. Our oldest unit (2006) has nearly 160,000 washes on it and it like a Rolex, takes a licking and keeps on ticking!! Autec has Fantastic Customer Service Second to None!
