HOW TO PRESSURE WASHER A BIG RIG TRUCK


According to Good Morning America there are going to be over 500,000 new over the road driving positions available at a starting salary of just over $30,000 dollars a year. You can make money and travel this beautiful country we live in. You can ask any trucker one of the hardest things about driving a truck is keeping it clean. Whether you are driving in the north through rain, sleet, and snow, or through the dusty Southwest, there is nothing worst than knowing you are going to spend hours cleaning it up. Not anymore. With a high pressure washer you can cut your truck cleaning time by 50-75%.

If you are a truck driver you know that your truck is your second home, not only that but it is your career as well. Maintaining your truck is important to its life and your success. Some drivers also use their trucks as a means of advertising for their business, and you definitely don’t want to give your future clients an impression you run a sloppy business. With the right pressure washer and chemical you can be done cleaning your truck and trailer in no time, and get back to the real reason you work, to be able to relax.

Begin by connecting your pressure washer to the appropriate water supply; you should also check the oil levels in the pump and the engine, before starting your machine. Turn your machine on and start with your trailer working from the top to the bottom. A telescoping wand is a great tool for doing this work with little effort. You can use our 503 heavy duty degreaser or our 505 brushless vehicle soap. Wash your truck thoroughly using your 15-25° spray tip and about 2000-3000psi using caution around your vinyl lettering. Rinse your truck using our 516 non-spotting rinse to eliminate water spots. Next you can move on to your tractor. You will want use a bit less pressure here, still using the same chemicals and pressure washing from the top to bottom.

Weather you own your own rig, or you own a fleet of them, a pressure washer is a vital maintenance tool to keep your trucks looking and running their best. To make money you have to get them dirty but you don’t have to waste countless hours getting them clean again, giving you time to do what is important.
