What do you guys think of the new design? We designed this with simplicity in mind. There is no need to adjust anything; just slip it into any 6 foot truck box and away you go. It is also the most light-weight skid in the industry. We all know that the chemicals weigh enough by themselves. 

The best feature about this skid is the fact that is it a 100% closed system. It has an integrated 3/4" draw hose to pull the chemical right from the drum on the ground without the need for a secondary pump or fill station. 

Also, with the new Basket Strainer, you are able to reuse any run-off; lowering your material costs.

It looks like one hell of a good Softwash System to me! The Skid concept makes it easy to move if you buy a new truck, or your truck breaks down.

What are the sizes of the tanks on these Softwash Systems Skids ?

Is an F 150 pickup truck enough, or is it best to go to a 3/4 ton truck ?

Great questions! The 6' model contains (1) 100 gallon chemical storage tank and (1) 50 gallon mixing tank. This allows someone to clean 6 - 7 average size roofs while staying within the Department of Transportation (DOT) guidelines. We do offer a 8' model that contains (2) 100 gallon tanks. However, one must possess a HAZMAT endorsement on their drivers license in order to purchase.

 

A 1/2 ton pick-up such as a Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado 1500 can easily carry the weight of one of these skids. However, if the truck is consistently filled with fluid, then we recommend an upgraded suspension to withstand the payload.

I am very frugal, in fact, I have been accused as being  tight as bark on a tree!

I have tried older F 150's, and found that they suck for carrying all that weight. New ones may be better, but we avoid new trucks, cause the roof cleaning and softwash system chemicals tear them up.

We prefer 3/4 and 1 ton trucks to 1/2 tons.

They have bigger brakes, radiators, and heavy duty u joints, as well as suspensions better able to handle all that weight of the softwash system.

We're looking into a new truck and putting an aluminum work bed on it, Softwash in the summer and salt spreader in the winter. We can't all have the luxury of living in sunny Florida! New definitely has its tax advantages..

I have a 93 F-350 and it's a beast with a heart like a timex watch....takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

 

Ditto on the capacity...I blew out a tran's on two 1/2 ton Chevy's before I swore them off forever. I have a a Sierra 3/4 ton, a Dodge 1 ton and the old Ford 1 ton.
