    One Tip I have is to have a Spray-Truck.

    The 2 trucks were great because they give you a 20' long sidewalk area to walk on while cleaning. Sometimes we would use 3 - 2x12 planks, then a 5/8" or 3/4" sheet of ply on top of the planks. You can clean so fast with the 4x8 foot work sections on each level. The front racks can come right off, the 2 pins welded to the top of the bumper and bolted in the top bolt.
    The rear racks stay on all the time, the rear racks have about a dozen 2x12 planks across, then a sheet of rubber roofing membrane covers the planks. This kind of keeps the tools and stuff in the bed dry. All the pipe sections were pin'ed in and set-up and broke-down fast.

    I realize you cannot use this kind of Rig on Union or certain job-sites, but for the most part you can get away with it in small towns. Not OSHA Approved...


    Chad this is what we should have use to wash the Staybridge.

    Extra parts tip!!

    We had to finish early this morning. Electric starter stopped working, so we were using the pull start all night. Towards the end of one job, the pull start broke! Had to finish rinsing with a garden hose. Sucked!

    My tip: Besides all the o-rings, fittings, etc. you should have as spares, keep a new rope pull start on hand!

    PWI Tip of the Day- On Board Water Access

    Many of you probably already have this but, it took me awhile to figure it out. When I did it saved a lot of extra time in filling up water buckets at the hose bib.

    Wow, this is a GREAT thread! The ball valves, float valves, low level valve, anti seeze, back ups for everything. I love it! Sometimes it's the simplist ideas that are the best.

    How about the dull and chalky shutters?

    Go to Lowes or HD to the paint department and buy some penetrol.

    Wipe it on the shutter and it is as good as new again.

    Shutters are 28 to 42 a pair to replace not counting the labor. Paint will eventually peel.

    I use a wide piece of velcro strapping made from two components, fuzzy side and lock side with adhesive backing stuck back to back) , about and inch wide and three inches long. I wrap it around the Surface cleaner trigger and shut off flow with a ball value. Having the Velcro gives me the option of using the trigger when it is a better application and i can wrap the velcro around the outside hoop of the trigger handle to store it when not using. I only let my guys lock trigger on a surface cleaner and never on a wand, just to dangerous.

    Also I always teach my guys to drain wands when they are done using them to prevent rusting etc. (probably a no brainer for most of you eh?) but I thought I would toss it in.

    If your rope breaks all you have do to on most engines is take a piece of strap or or any kind of rope and wrap it around the crank shaft and pull, if the engine has been running it should start pretty easy... just make sure the pressure is off the gun
