HDAW - Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week 2012

I have spent the past two days at the HDAW - Heavy Duty Aftermarket Week meeting and tradeshow in sunny Las Vegas.
This meeting brings together a broad range of Manufacturers and Suppliers of Truck, Trailer, and Heavy Duty Equipment with the Heavy Duty Distributors that provide coverage throughout the US and Canada.
I will be posting a number of new products and innovations that were presented this week.
The first is a new device by the OTC division of SPX.
The Portable Diesel Particulate Filter Cleaner part number 5286 is a far less expensive, simple to use device that uses high pressure shop air through a unique "floating puck" head that forces air through each individual passageway in the filter to blow out the ash created during regeneration of the traps.
The manufacturer claims that in most cases the use of this unit can eliminate the need to separately "bake" units before blowing the ash out using one of the earlier type machines.
This unit also could simplify disposal of the ash material.
To see this unit, here is a link to a You Tube video that OTC has posted at:
I was impressed with the quality of the machine and with the simplicity of its operation.
It can clean DPF's from 6" to 15.5" in diameter.
Another significant feature is the portability of this unit. It can operate on 110 or 220 vac and on 12 vdc.
I will be very interested to hear back from anyone who has working experience with this machine.
