Wash Bays – Efficient And Effective Heavy Equipment Cleaning

Posted on: February 26th, 2019 by | No Comments

How it Works

Work vehicles and equipment enter the wash pad area and are sprayed off by a pressure washer or water cannon, rinsing off dirt, grime and grease. Angled to catch the dirty water, the catch basin is below the wash pad and leads to a water treatment recycling system. The contaminants are then separated from the water which are stored for future reuse, and the pollutants are drained into the disposal system.

What It Contains

Efficiently and effectively clean your trucks and equipment using an on-site washing wash bay. By rinsing away excess mud, oil and other contaminants, your vehicles can run better, and the equipment can function properly and last longer. Within a wash bay, there is a wash pad, a pressure washer, a catch basin, a recycling machine and a disposal system.

Save Money while Saving the Environment

Wash bays provide the ability to clean equipment while disposing of wastewater safely. The contaminants washed off general work site equipment can have a harmful effect on the environment, but by using a wash bay, it collects the pollutants and keeps them from spreading. After the dirty water is run through the recycling system, it can be stored and re-used.

Types of Wash Bays

Wash bays can be permanent or mobile depending on what you need it for. For sites that are temporary, a portable wash bay can help clean what you need throughout the duration of that site’s location. No matter the type of wash bay you choose, you can depend on it properly recycling dirty wash water and disposing of its contaminants.

To help you decide on the specifications your wash bay will need, Mi-T-M’s dealers have the knowledge to assist you. By designing, supplying and installing your new wash bay, you can have peace of mind knowing it was completed by the experts. From start to finish, our dealers will be there to answer any questions you have along the way.

 

Should You Buy or Rent A Pressure Washer?

Posted on: February 26th, 2019 by | 2 Comments

Buying a Pressure Washer Vs. Renting a Pressure Washer

From fences to decks, siding to lawn furniture, cars to garage floors; the places and things you can clean with a pressure washer are seemingly endless. So does it make more sense to rent or buy a pressure washer?

Cold Water Pressure Washer

 

If you only use a pressure washer once or twice a year, it may make more financial sense to rent a pressure washer unit. You may also wish to hire someone with their own machine to clean your home and items. What is the cost for that service?

 

If you’re a weekend warrior and wash your house and appliances several times each year, you may want to purchase a sturdy and reliable washer. Mi-T-M offers a huge variety of residential pressure washer sizes and styles.

Make sure you compare apples to apples when deciding to buy or rent a pressure washer. Once you know which motor and type of washer best fits your needs, you can calculate the hourly cost of renting vs. buying. Renting a pressure washer may cost $50-$150 dollars per day. Buying a pressure washer, depending on the model and motor, runs $300 and up. Therefore, 2-3 rentals may be the same price as buying new.

 

When you rent a pressure washer, you don’t have to maintain the machine. However, you may have to pay for rental insurance. When you buy a pressure washer, you’ll need to pay for your own repairs, but you’ll own the machine outright.

 

Availability

Availability is another factor. If you own your own washer, you can use it whenever and wherever you need it. However, if you wish to rent, know that there are some seasons and times of year when washers are in high demand. Renting during those times may be more difficult or may cost more.

 

The experts at Mi-T-M can answer all your pressure washer questions. We’ve been in business for more than 40 years and our promise is to deliver unmatched performance—from the quality of our products to the dedication of each employee who does what’s right for our customer every time.
