    Stopped to look at a truck for sale on the side of the road today. Twas a 90 Dodge pickup/flat bed with 8ft fisher/fisher tailgate 2 stage sander on it. The guy had a flex tube running from his exaust into the hopper of the sander(must have been frozen), any of you guys try that before? The truck had a cummings, with 140,000 on it. Price tag of 6k

    They use the exhaust on tandem and tri axle dumps to keep blacktop hot,i dont see why it wouldn't work?not sure how well it would work in the winter with extreme cold temps though.

    My experience is diesel is only hot when working. I worked on busses. We let them idle to cool off. Then you could touch thr exhaust manifolds.

    that would be a cool idea but you would have to make it so there wasn't too much back pressure on the exhaust system.
