Out door movie screen pressure washed

Movie Night Daytona Beach.JPGWe pressure a lot of odd stuff, you never know when the phone rings. Last one was a skate park for the City.
 
We routinely use my portable cold water Mi-T-M 4000psi 4gpm as a jet boat engine, basically we have a small 20ft wide shallow river that we cross in a small inflatable raft, we then load that up with supplies such as beer and food. Once boat is loaded up we fire up the motor and use a 15degree tip and lower the wand to just above water level, crank up the rpm's and off I go across the stream to our designated chill spot. Roughly 4 trips are made to ferry people across, once we land I throw on a turbo nozzle and blast the surface sandy area free of sticker and other pokey things, "I tried a leaf blower but it created way too much dust, since its hot outside the water from the pressure washer is usually soaked into the sand instantly leaving no muddy mess to walk through. Once done we load everything back into the boat and i carry it all back, and I then wash off everyones shoes off of dirt and sand before they get into their cars. I use a small 12v electric water pump with a motorcycle battery mounted on my washer to suck up the water from the river to supply my pressure washer.

I have done this successfully with 0 problems this summer for a total of perhaps 70+ cross river trips and have yet to spend 4k on a full size jet boat that would only get stuck on every shallow rock or sand bar. Well... if I win perhaps Ill take some photos of our Nile river crossing expeditions.

I am not sure if you want to know what one can be used for on a remote roof at night when the crew remembers to bring up a plastic bag for emergencies but forgets toilet paper.

When that happens they will thank you for the ball valve and the detachable wand.

Not saying that has ever happened. Lol

Unless I choose not to bring it. Then you will just have to visualize it in your mind. That is what the top tier, elite contractors do.
 
We received so many great responses to this post it was tough to judge. Ultimately our pick shows some great creativity, an out of the box practical use combined with some more traditional uses. Very creative Manuel, and even though you are “yachting” with a fine brand of pressure washer we hope you will check out Vortexx Pressure Washers down the road or river as it may be. I must ask how quickly are you able to get your jet boat going and please do post pics.

To everyone else thank you for the effort and laughs!

INCREDIBLE!!!! Thank you very much for your gift to me! I had zero expectations about the opportunity at hand but I will put this prize to good use to benefit the business, everything counts! The season is changing but there are plenty of 100degree plus days in my neck of the woods so I promise to have some pictures taken of my voyage as captain of the vessel and how simple it was to put together and take apart. Which brings me to my next concern as I might have found a solution to the on your website, (when my all powerful machine decides its not gonna ferry our lazy ass around the damn river, or I sink it) I am interested in a machine of yours and will be looking at your offerings much more closely over the next few weeks.

Once again, thank you from Hottemp Steam Cleaning out in Fresno California and everyone this business can mutually benefit.

ps. where are your trailer stickers on your website for ordering... =)

Have a great day everyone, even after getting a molar pulled out ive still got a smile simply because someone else is helping me out even though they don't know me! Your cool, Vortexx Pressure Washing is awesome and this entire pressure washing forum and institute is the best!

Thanks
