    there was a great link to a video detailing a complete post-season truck and equipment clean up process a couple years ago that i have not been able to locate.
    pretty sure it was a SIMA/Snow Business website related piece that also showed up here of a company with a dedicated wash booth and extensive process of using neutro-wash, pressure washer, rain-x etc to clean up their plows, spreaders and trucks.
    anybody got a link?
    thank you!

    Tis the season cleaning a prepping the equipment for summer storage. This is the time of year where we go through all the salters and do whatever rust repair and misc items now so in the fall it is mount them and go back to work. As for the dedicated snow trucks we go through them from top to bottom before we put them away. What we do with them is start them weekly run the sanders and move the trucks back and forth so the brakes don't lock up. Since we started doing that 15 years ago the prep in the beginning of the season is minimal.
