    Hi Guys, I just wanted to introduce myself and share my rig. I'm Nate and I operate a successful mobile truck wash up here in Northern Michigan. Winters slow down for us washing wise and adding a winter only revenue stream made sence. for all the haters... Yes I have adequate insurance, yes I have plowing experience, and no I will not be working for $50 an hour.

    Truck is a 2012 F-250 and the Boss 8'2" DTX was installed this morning.

    Anyway Hi

    that's a clean setup.

    will you be doing residential or commercial? your own contracts or subbing?

    first order of business, while that truck is new get it undercoated if you plant on keeping it. Fluid Film the door sills and seems and as much of the under side as possible. Finally add a pair of LED work lights, no less than 500 Lumen each!!

    Yeah, I have been really thinking hard on what I want to do to protect the uc. It certainly helps this truck gets washed daily, sometimes 2-3 times per day in the winter (its what we do after all.) Part of our wash process includes salt neutralization. What is fluid film? I've never heard of it.

    I have the back up lights just haven't gotten so far as putting them on yet.

    I have about a dozen residents I am plowing for myself and a handful of contractors wanting to sub me out on there commercial routes. I went with the V plow for our shop which I have about an acres of parking lot.
