The machine's design ensures compatibility with our Tonker 830 model, facilitating a seamless transition between functionalities. This enables clients to initially purchase a machine tailored for ramming operations (Tonker 830) and subsequently modify it for solar panel cleaning tasks.

 

The conversion process can be performed both at our manufacturing facility and on-site where the machine is conducting ramming operations, subject to specific conditions.
