New truck! (The Beast)


#201

Lol I think you are marketing to the wrong fella if you want to save me money. I think my self builds work just fine.


#202

Your truck will handle better if you move the tanks back about 2 feet. Your maxing our the front axle


#203

The shop said the same thing but I put a 2500lb pallet of salt on the back. I’ll be buying a v box spreader that goes on the back and I need room in front of it for salt. Truck is getting a workout.


#204

Also I do need weight on the front to stop the front from pushing sideways when plowing heavy snow.

:man_facepalming:t3:


#206

Isuzu are pretty tuff but doing the old drive -reverse -drive to get unstuck especially when loaded is bad juju .
I bet u are havin a ball on the loader I love driving them and excavators, definitely fun to operate!!


#207

The beast had really crappy heat. On that last storm I couldn’t even keep the windows from fogging up. I lined the floor with heat reflective bubble insulation and made a new floor liner. Then I installed this heater box on the floorboard. Talk about a difference! I could get the cab up to 100 if I wanted now lol


#208

Any response to this @PressureCity?


#209

Moved the toolbox back where it was. Took one of the two totes off and mounted the other further back to get some weight off the front axle. Got it all washed up and still hoping we don’t get snow lol


#210

Why u do machine and hoses in driver side?


#211

They are just there till I build the new skid. New skid will be on the other side.

Will have 2 high pressure hose reels, 1 feed reel, 1 softwash reel, 2 8gpm predators, remote softwash and DS.

Then I’m going to mount a permanent 5gpm pump and line where the current predator is mounted. That one will stay year round for gutters.

The yellow softwash line on the drivers side right now sprays liquid de-icer.


#212

Just seen this truck on my way home. Thought it might give you some ideas for the beast


#213

Lol what is that???

I’m building a “pretty” truck.


#214

Schertz your rig is looking incredible. Truly a beast!


#215

Thank you sir! Been a lot of work!


#216

@squidskc I’d love to build an all aluminum skid. You ever welded aluminum?


#217

Nope, but I’m not above figuring it out. I got a bunch of scrap aluminum sheet and small angle.

I’ll text you in a minute


#218

That is a redneck accident waiting to happen


#219

Websites nothing but stolen images and vague about who they are. Lol


#220

That sounds like someone here lol
