USOC, the longtime Bitimec Distributor, has won a contract to wash 800 First Student Group buses located in two major depots in Wichita Kansas. Ron and David Pore, principals at USOC say they never could have come close to winning the contract without their Bitimec A225-LX diesel driven mobile power brush. In a sweltering heat wave of over 100F which was capping the United States in mid July, the USOC wash crew was able to wash 130-135 buses a day, consistently. After a presoak with soap mixture, the single Bitimec A-225-LX diesel was used to power brush the sides and rear in 2 minutes on cleaner buses, or 4 minutes for a double wash on dirtier units. “ The trouble was keeping them coming and going” says Ron Pore “we had more people doing the shunting of buses than we had washing them!”
