    Just a standard set of doubles. 2nd trailer is a pull trailer like a west coast truck and trailer. I'm only pulling 80k.

    167% PTO? Or did you mean 67%?

    Yea I'm a bit confused too. Had a little time and did an light acid wash on my trailer wheels. One step closer to making this set shine.

    That's why I love the clearcoat on this trailer. It's just over a year old and looks like new for the most part. But it does get rinsed daily when I'm done

    Lucky guy! Mine are about 15 years old. They don't look too bad but need some work. The set I was pulling before were so bad caked with cement that I couldn't stand to look at them. I just inherited these trailers so I'll do a little here and there when I have the time. Luckily, one of our yards has all the soap and chemicals you need plus a filtered SUPER clean water pressure washer for the mixers. Since I'm delivering at night I can go back there and do some work on them if I have a light night. It's really amazing how your attitude can change when your driving a clean rig.

    Those wagons are 15 years old? They look really good in the pics. I was guessing maybe two to three years old. But yeah, having a clean truck and trailer definitely makes me like my job a little more. Until I load cement in the rain and have to scrub it in the morning....

    You are correct. That set isn't mine. Those trailers are just a few years old and they belong to another driver. Mine have a matte silver finish now. I can get them pretty cleaned up but they will never have that kind of shine. But that's ok with me because I'd probably go crazy trying to keep a polished set clean in this line of work. I'll try to post a pic in the daylight if I remember.
