Designed to boost your cleaning power and reduce your cleaning time, the right nozzle is critical for your job specifications.

You want total and absolute control at your fingertips? Mi-T-M can give it to you. Our multi-function nozzle provides six settings for all your cleaning needs. That’s one setting for every day of the week, but Sunday. Made from durable stainless steel, with this nozzle you can choose degrees of 0, 15, 25, 40. The other two nozzle settings are for soaping and rinsing.

 

Rotating Nozzle

 

If you love the multi-function nozzle above, you’re sure to appreciate our Mi-T-M rotating nozzle. Attach this marvelous device to your pressure washer wand, set your timer, and start saving time. This wonderful nozzle boosts your cleaning power with zero spray impact 25-degree coverage. We offer four models of this nozzle, so you’re guaranteed to find one for every application of your Mi-T-M equipment.

 

Extension Wand

 

Sure, you can see it, but you just can’t get to it. Even with the tallest ladder on the market and the right nozzle head, sometimes you can’t reach what you’re trying to clean. Mi-T-M will help you get close to the action with our durable extension wands. Our lightweight, aluminum models range in length from 6’ 5” to either 18 or 24’. Imagine that you’re pressure washing siding and there’s mold at the top corner you can’t blast away. Now you can. Simply attach one of our extension wands and attack grime. Bye bye mold.

Mission accomplished.

 

Pivot Coupler

Hard-to-reach areas and nooks and crannies are no match for our clever little pivot coupler. With three different cleaning angles, this Mi-T-M accessory connects between your pressure washer wand and high pressure nozzle. It’s ideal for nearly every cold water pressure washer and can handle up to  4500-PSI. Just say the word and we’ll connect you with our helpful pivot coupler.

 

Like the wands above, our longer hoses allow you to cover more distance. If you need to be more mobile while cleaning, we’ve got you covered. From 50, 75, 100, 150, and 200-foot lengths, our Mi-T-M hoses are designed to handle a wide variety of PSI requirements and temperatures.

 

Our cold-water hoses are resistant to chemicals and our hot water extension hoses come assembled with screw and quick connects. All our high-quality extension hoses can withstand temperatures up to 250 degrees. We know everyone’s cleaning needs are different; we have an extension hose for you.

 

Detergents

Water alone is great. But pair it with the right cleaner and you’re really off to the races. Trust our large line of Mi-T-M detergents. Our environmentally friendly blends can be used indoors and outdoors. Available in 1, 5, and 55-gallon sizes, our cleaners also prevent spotting. Choose from our all-purpose cleaner, deck and house wash, or heavy-duty degreaser. Tell us your cleaning needs and we’ll help you select the perfect detergent to accomplish your goals.

Hose Reels

Our authorized dealers will help you select all the accessories you’ll need, including brackets, elbows, reducers, and jumper hoses.

 

Pump Saver

When you’re ready to store your equipment for winter, pump saver protects against freezing temperatures.

 

Rotary Surface Cleaners

Planes, Trains or …….. RVs?

Imagine never waiting in airport lines again, avoiding crowded buses and trains, never booking another hotel room, or asking to stay with relatives and friends.

 

No, you’re not dreaming. When you own a recreational vehicle (RV), you can travel almost anywhere, anytime, set your own agenda, and let the open road guide you.

 

About 10 percent of American households over age 55 own an RV. Some use motorhomes and campers for occasional travel and special events. But some people actually live in their RV’s. The number of full time RVers in the United States is about one million people, according to RVing Guide.

 

Camping is one of the most popular activities in the United States. In 2015, people spent nearly six billion dollars at campgrounds and RV parks. That’s a tidy sum. Clearly, people love the great outdoors. RV owners simply do it from inside their homes on wheels.

 

Whether you drive a grand Class A motorhome, steer a mid-sized Class C, or tow a travel trailer behind you, you’ll need a reliable power source for all of your essential accessories, equipment and devices. Without a generator, you’re just camping in a vehicle. With a good generator, you’ve got a luxury hotel on wheels.

Let’s Generate Some Power

Buying a portable generator is well worth the initial investment. You’ll soon wonder how you ever lived without one. However, before you purchase a generator, make sure to select a model that fits your power needs.

 

When it comes to generators, size does matter. Make sure you get the right amount of power for the right price. Here’s a math equation you’ll want to consider: Amps x Volts = Watts.

 

Look around ysmall generatorour RV. What accessories, equipment, and devices will you need power to operate? A coffee maker, a TV, a laptop, an air conditioner? Will you need to charge or run any at the same time? To determine what size generator you will need, add up the total watts of all the items for which you’ll need power and select a model that can easily handle your anticipated needs. At Mi-T-M, we’ll be glad to help you make these calculations.

How Can Mi-T-M Help?

If you like the strong, silent type, you’ll love our Mi-T-M generators. We offer both 2000-watt and 3000-watt compact inverter generators. As opposed to a standard generator, an inverter type has fewer moving parts, offers better fuel efficiency, and provides digital wave manipulation capabilities.

Both our models are designed to be quiet and powerful. The last thing you need is a lot of irksome noise from a generator. The first thing you need is strength. Our generators are ideal for charging and powering equipment and devices while traveling, as well as during recreational activities.

portable generators

 

You’ll appreciate many special features of our generators, including:

  • Insulated side panels that reduce noise
  • Recoil start
  • Copper windings
  • Low-oil shutdown
  • USB port for electronics
  • Wheels for portability
  • Easy grip handles
  • Commercial quality AC power for sensitive electronics

 

If you need more than 3000 watts of power, simply use our parallel connection port box accessory. This appliance connects two Mi-T-M inverter generators together to utilize the power of both units at once. The inverters are not RV-ready and they will need an adapter .

 

Mi-T-M knows the advantages of owning a portable generator. We’re happy to help you choose a generator that’s right for your needs. Let us answer your questions before you embark on your next travel adventure.

 

 

 

Maintaining The Indianapolis Motor Speedway: The Tale Of Quipco Sales.

Posted on: May 11th, 2017 by | No Comments

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a 2 1/2 mile stretch of road that has led many drivers to greatness. There are many unique things about this place, an obvious one being the prestigious Indy 500. Although many events around race day are well documented, many don’t consider the extensive work that takes place before, during, and after. We’d like to give you an insider’s look at what it takes to keep the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in pristine condition for drivers and spectators alike.

As a young boy Daniel Porterfield would ride his bike to the track so he could witness all the action happening on race day. Years later he took over the company his parents founded Quipco Sales and began selling Mi-T-M power washing equipment; because of the contacts he made when visiting the track, Daniel was able to establish the Indianapolis Motor Speedway maintenance crew as his clients. This relationship continued to grow over the years, and in 2016 proved to be fruitful for both sides. Internal factors lead to a track management vacancy at IMS, and Daniel was notified immediately once the contract became available. A relationship that began over 25 years ago resulted in Daniel earning a contract to power wash the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which is a testament to properly serving clients.

From April 1st to May 25th, Daniel put in 12 hour days of power washing with Mi-T-M equipment before and after each race. One can imagine the amount of cement, concrete, asphalt, composite, and black concrete that’s washed at a racetrack, but picture doing it all by hand. Walking the track with 5,000-gallon water trucks, and spraying it from the top of the bank to the infield seemed to be a never-ending task. As all innovative business owners do, Daniel is currently developing a customized 96-inch truck mounted sprayer to make his operation more efficient the next time around. An improvement such as this could cut his man-hours substantially, and ensure he produces an even better result.

 

Aside from cleaning the racetrack areas, Daniel is responsible for the washing and sanitizing seating, amenities, and other highly traveled areas. The 250,000 bleacher seats at IMS were cleaned throughout the racing season as well as restrooms, concessions, and concourse areas.

Quipco Sales was founded on the principals of professionalism, trustworthiness, and service, three elements that help to continually strengthen customer relationships. One piece of advice Daniel has for other contractors is, “if possible, always communicate with others on the jobsite. You never know where you’ll make a friend or gain a customer – which are the same thing in my book.”
