Z-020 Tornador Black Car Cleaning Gun
Turbo-charged Tornador for faster, more powerful cleaning!
The Z-020 Tornador Black has newly developed rotational technology inside the funnel to provide faster, more powerful cleaning compared to the Tornador Classic. Professional detailers will love the speed and effectiveness of the Tornador Black. The new design reduces wear and ensures a longer life and superior performance.
The Z-020 Tornador Black produces enormous power with a very small air compressor. All you need is a compressor with a discharge rate of at least 270 l per minute (4.5 cfm). This can be achieved using compressors with a reservoir of as little as 13 gallon capacity. Mobile detailers can now use the Tornador Black with a smaller, portable air compressor.
The Z-020 Tornador Black is less noisy, too. The designers increased power but reduced air consumption and noise. Plus, the Tornador Black d is equipped with sealed ball bearings inside the rotation set. Wear is minimized because the rotation set no longer comes into contact with the cone. This improvement makes the Tornador Black better suited for long term, frequent use, as in a professional detailing capacity.
Tornador Black features:
- Double the power of the Tornador Classic
- Low wear and maintenance
- Lower air consumption
- Suitable for 240V compressors
- Lower noise emissions
The Tornador Black Z-020 can be used for all the same applications as the Tornador Classic, but the Black is more effective on persistent spots, like chewing gum. The cone-shaped nozzle and oscillating tip create a tornado cleaning action that cleans hard and soft surfaces like nothing you’ve seen before. Dirt and grime are immediately released from fabrics, carpet, and solid surfaces.
The Tornador Black Car Cleaning Gun releases a fine mist of cleaning solution that does not over saturate surfaces. You’ll see the liquid turning dirty as grime is released from the surface. Wipe with a microfiber towel. Then turn the dial to shut off the water and use the compressed air to dry the cleaned area. It’s that simple.
Use the Tornador Black Z-020 on the dashboard, door panels, steering wheel, fabric upholstery, carpet, floor mats, and between seats. It cleans in tough-to-reach places between seats and in seams. Because it releases so little liquid, surfaces dry quickly.
The Tornador Black cleans air vents...
On the exterior, use the Z-020 Tornador Black to clean fabric convertible tops, body seams, wheels, and emblems. There’s no need to scrub. The Tornador does the hard work for you.
The Z-020 Tornador Black has an air regular to allow you to change the working pressure directly on the tool and also to dose the capacity of chemicals accurately. What this means is that you can use more pressure and cleaning fluid on tough spots.
To clean any surface, dilute the desired cleaner according to label’s directions. Turn the liquid valve straight up and use an overlapping motion as you pass the Tornador Car Cleaning Gun over the surface. If necessary, allow the cleaning liquid to dwell for 10-15 seconds. Use a microfiber towel to absorb excess liquid. Then turn the liquid valve off and use the compressed air to dry the cleaned area.
The Tornador Black Car Cleaning Gun is not a foam gun. It is a patented cleaning gun designed to remove soil with a unique cyclonic cleaning action. There's nothing else like it!

My first thought though, HOW DOES IT WORK, EXACTLY?!?!?! and the manufacturer videos dont really tell you clearly/exactly.
now that i have used it. i know what its doing.
its literally blowing the dirt out of the carpet. the dirt gets blown both out and some sucked into the cone. i was cleaning a carpet on a 97 accord (never cleaned before). i was in my garage, barefoot sitting on one of those rolling seats. as i was blowing with water/cleaner on and somewhat blowing sideways aiming the air towards my left leg. the water and cleaner was blowing all over my legs ( because i was aiming it that way). i wasnt paying it too much attention. i could feel my leg being hit with particles. about a minute later, my leg was covered in wet dirt. gross. but im glad i saw that. so i could actually see the amount of dirt coming out. and there was even more dirt getting blown to the sides of my chicken leg that i couldnt see.
some dirt swirls into the cone as well. so you want a bucket with 5 inches of water or so. and every minute or so put the cone in the water and pull the trigger like 4 to 5 times quickly to clean it out.i also do a quick rub with my finger to make sure the inside of the cone is clean.
i used meguairs d101 diluted 10 to 1. it worked pretty well on carpets.
now, which compressor??? i emailed the company, but they basically said, 5scfm at 90psi, like it says in the manual. i was like geeze, thanks. they dont even mention oil lubed or not.
but after talking to my local freight saleperson he schooled me on the difference. and basically said go oil free since oil gets into the line and we are using this to blow into carpets..... so..... that would be bad.
i was brand new to compressors. and my first reaction was to go to the local freight store that has cheap tools. but sadly they either had models that were "oil lubed", or were only 4.1 scfm at 90psi.
i also wasnt sure how large it needed to be. some reviews say you can get buy with a small 4 gallon, but that it will constantly run and you will have down time to let it get back to 90psi.
i ended up with a husky c303h. its a 30 gallon. sounds crazy, but even this had to kick on when cleaning just 2 front car carpets. it can handle 175psi internally. so you do get a lot of usage before it drops down enough to have to refill. someone of the youtube vids said it was a great model for the price. it has a nice knob to make sure that only 90psi is exiting to the hoses.
though the z-20 comes with a regulator at the handle which is nice.
comparable dewalts are 2x as expensive. there was a 15 gallon dewalt at my local hardware store but it was like 30% more then the 30 gallon husky.
after that, you just need a couple of fittings, some thread sealant tape and a hose which all can be purchased from your local freight store for $40 or less depending on the hose length. i also picked up one of those duster handles since i have a compressor now. might as well.
i added a photo of before and after. the before photo was taken after i started a few passes along the bottom (below the honda sign). so thats why some of it looks clean already.
the after photo was about 10 minutes of blowing wet then dry, and then wiping with a microfiber towel.
next time i will add a step of brushing out dirt with a brush as well. this was my first attempt. i should get faster and better with this tool.
