AM Equipment Wiper Systems on the NUTMobile!

Did you catch the Super Bowl? More importantly, did you watch the great commercials during the big game? If so, you probably noticed the Planters ad featuring Mr. Peanut careening through the streets in his NUTMobile, rushing to save Alex Rodriguez from sub-par snacks, passing Charlie Sheen on the way.

Guess whose wiper system cleared the windshield for Mr. Peanut… AM Equipment’s!!!

Our Applications CAD Specialist, Rene Widger, worked with our customer to design a system specifically for the NUTMobile, and the whole Super Bowl-watching nation saw it! The NUTMobile uses two of our 230 Unitized Assemblies with 21” Commercial Duty Wiper Arms and 20” Wiper Blades.

Great job, Rene! We’ve never seen a nuttier application of our wiper systems (groan).

Looking for a 208 Series Motor? Try the 212 Series!

We’re streamlining our motor offerings, and to that end, we recently discontinued the 208 Series DC gear motors. Our 212 Series DC gear motors serve as direct replacements for 208s, but with more features (we know you love features).

Here’s the nitty-gritty of the 212s as 208 replacements:

  • Still fit in small installation envelopes

  • Motor bracket replicates hole pattern of 208s for easy replacement

  • Both motors are single speed, clockwise or counterclockwise park

  • 212 Series motors park in the opposite direction from 208 Series; to maintain the same park position, use this wire harness if you have a plug-in harness

  • 212s have more torque, so they can run longer windshield wiper arm and blade combos

  • 212s are compatible with our motor covers (with and without rocker switch)

Sample Application: Windshield Wiper Systems for Snowplows

Winter wonderland or traffic nightmare?

By definition, snowplows operate in the worst weather. They’re out clearing streets so the rest of us can travel safely. At the same time, AM Equipment long-life wiper systems clear snowplow windshields so the drivers can see what they’re doing.

Our wiper assemblies maximize visibility for snowplow drivers in all conditions and exceed SAE standards.  Since we use rigorous testing and quality control protocols, we offer the longest warranty in the industry:  two years.

AM Equipment windshield wiper systems can be engineered to resist oil, water, sand, and all types of weather—let us know what you need for your application!

Sample Application: Windshield Wiper Systems for Delivery Vans

If you manufacture delivery vans, you know they’re expected to perform in any weather.  A little rain or snow doesn’t stop those trucks—they’ll roll through the neighborhood dropping off packages and riling up dogs no matter what! 

Since inclement weather can hamper visibility for delivery drivers, AM Equipment offers dependable long-life windshield wiper systems to help them do their jobs safely.
