looking for the brush things that go on the side of truck to cut down wheel splash.


Recommended Posts

as the title says, i am looking for the brush type things used on trailers, mostly UPS, Fed Ex, and USPS to cut down on water spray from the tires.

i am not even sure what it is called, but i would like to put it on the sides of our tri-axle dump trucks to try  to keep the body cleaner.

the quarries and asphalt plants we go to use recycled water for dust control, and the trucks come out covered with muddy water spray. 

 

when you are up to your armpits in alligators,

it is hard to remember you only came in to drain the swamp..

years back , I ordered them from fleetpride (Connecticut driveshaft back then  ) they helped a lot in keeping a fleet of ice cream trailer cleaner. but be ready for some swearing from tire changers :LOL. triaxles don't do a lot of winter running, snow not a major issue.  the snow does a heck of build up during winter driving. they weren't cheap ; but safety for me was the biggest concern . rain  over spray highway driving is reduced  big time. course tire work on triaxle is simple ; just raise the body.
