Going from trailer to a truck

I came across an Isuzu 4 cyl. diesel with a landscaping bed today and bought it. The SH has not completly ruined my trailer yet. I will have to coat the metal bed for sure. Hoping to have a rolling bill board

 That's AWESOME Andy! The Isuzu and Mitsubishi's IMHO, are the best flatbed trucks made, for roof or pressure cleaning.

You can get a sheet of rubber to put on the bed, or coat it.

I really didn't leave the house looking to buy a truck but I saw it and got to thinking about  how nice it might be not to work off the trailer.

 3.9 diesel engine which by no means feels to be a powerhouse but I figure for the price it will work.

I started cleaning roofs in 2009 as an add on to exterior washing. The chems have taken their toll on a new 7x14 trailer.

Its still usable but its getting ugly.image.jpg

Roll Tide! 

You will love the Isuzu, and it's small turning radius! The brakes last nearly forever, and so do the U Joints, even when SH spills on them.

Try that on a Ford, and you will soon be meeting your driveshaft! 

LOL, I would make a rolling billboard out of the sides and back of that puppy!

Here are a few Isuzu and Mitsubishi Roof Cleaning Trucks we have had, over the years.

They are set up for what we do, cleaning roofs, we are not power washers.
