NEW TRUCK SKID

NEW TRUCK SKID

Doug Rucker is building a new NEW TRUCK SKID for his own use.  He recently posted a picture of this NEW TRUCK SKID and received quite a few questions and comments in response.  This video post is the response to those comments and questions and provides a quick run through.  This unique view will provide an opportuinty to see the build in process before it hits the bed of the pick up truck.  It is a six foot skid for a Toyota Tundra truck.  It is also known as a short body skid.  It has enough room for what I need for my powerwash.net commercial power wash business.  But I also intend to utilize it for travel training events.  The first such travel training event is schedule for February 22-24 in Cocoa, Florida.

TRUCK SKID EQUIPMENT

First and foremost, we made sure to include our proprietary BIG SLINGER.  This soft wash system will have two 3/4 valves on it.  One is for water and the other is for bleach.  I always just add my soap to my bleach so I only use two valves.  I never really found the need to meter soap.  Our Kingslinger Soft Wash System does have three valves for those who prefer having the option to do so.  There is a newer version of the compressor.  It has lower handles, a larger gas tank and no fuel pump.  We have an 8 GPM pressure washer.  At the 3:00 time stamp, we go over various minor modification details on the pressure washer machine.  There is also a twelve gallon as tank.

REELS and TANKS

There are two 100 gallon slim line tanks on this NEW TRUCK SKID.  At 8:15 I provide the specific demensions.  I mention Connor at Elite who sold us these tanks as well as the skid.  He is also a bleach distributor.  His phone number is 775-781-4153 if you would like to contact him.  I also discuss venting as well as our bleach fill tank kit.  Then you will note three electric hannay hose reels.  One is for water fill, one is for a soft wash hose, and one is for fierce jet pressure hose.  There are several other elements of this NEW TRUCK SKID that you don’t want to miss!  So be sure and watch this entire video.  Please leave a comment if you have any questions or is this post has been helpful to you.

TRUCK SKID

TRUCK SKID

This is a basic TRUCK SKID system video that explores each piece of equipment available at The Doug Rucker Store.  This particular type of set up is extremely popular and we have built many of these in the past.  Keep in mind all of the rig builds are completely customizable.  You design your own set up, and we’ll build it for you.  But this TRUCK SKID unit is a great template to consider for your pressure washing business.  It is a compact system built on a pallet skid that can be moved with a fork lift.  You can move this from truck, trailer or van and then into storage if necessary.  They are adaptable to you particular space, equipment and transport needs.

SKID EQUIPMENT BREAKDOWN

This TRUCK SKID starts out with a cold water 8 GPM skid pressure washer.  There is a 14 gallon fuel tank, which will allows you to complete an entire day’s work without running out of fuel.  The FLOW PRO down stream remote system is also on board.  The video clearly shows how the bypass mounts between the pressure washer and the Flow Pro remote box.  The three way poly valve allows easily switching from mix to water.  This enables him to rinse out his downstream injector.  Keep in mind that the owner for this particular TRUCK SKID set up will be using it for downstreaming only.

HOSE REELS

There are two 12 inch King’s reels with a 200 foot fierce jet pressure hose and 100 foot of flexilla garden hose.  And finally, there is a 55 gallon water tank which supplies the pressure washer.  Some may suggest that this is too small of a tank.  However, if you are solely providing residential service, the water tank is continually filling.  At the same time, you are on and off the gun so using the water is somewhat sporadic.  This tank also has the Topaz float valve inside.  Don’t hesitate to leave a comment if you have any questions.  We always enjoy an opportunity to build a custom truck, trailer or van rig that you design.
