Mobile Problast for Auto/Motorcycle Restoration


As seen on YouTube, this is the automotive and motorcycle restoration version of Vaniman’s venerable Mobile Problast. The Mobile Problast is a precision sand blaster that offers high-quality air-abrasion at an affordable price. For use by both DIYers and professionals, the Mobile Problast is an exceptional portable blaster for use anywhere detail blasting is needed but the item is too large for a conventional blasting cabinet. Use for detail blasting for paint prep, polishing and other restoration work on motorcycle engines, engine cases, dirt bike and street bike frames, automotive engine components such as intake manifolds, valve covers, front covers and a host of other components, often without having to remove the part from the vehicle during the restoration.

For use with a variety of media including glass bead, aluminum oxide, sodium bicarbonate and walnut shell, all of which are available through Vaniman. Also works exceptionally well when paired with our Cut and Clean cabinet, allowing you to have a traditional sandblasting cabinet for those times when the parts are small enough to fit inside, without having to purchase a completely separate sandblasting cabinet system.

Purchase includes one 4-lb. bottle of glass bead media.


Compressed air requirements: minimum 90 PSI at 1.5 CFM (recommended 2.5 CFM).
