I have a 6 wheeler with a J&J aluminum body. Any issues if I haul a load of asphalt? Warping or anything like that? Only hauling 1 load. About 6 ton. And no I do not have a plastic liner on the floor
All i've ever seen asphalt hauld in is aluminum beds. Just make sure you fuel the bed before you get loaded. Makes the asphalt come out much easyer.
I agree, coat the bed with diesel fuel, before you load. I have three trucks with 18ft aluminum beds and 2 with steel beds, I dont see any difference .
Dont get caught using diesel fuel in the bed, on State jobs, at least in NC. They will reject the load
If you have some that sticks to the bed, coat it good with diesel and let it set, you can shovel it out, but its got to set
I still use it all the time, but i use something to kill the diesel smell, orange citrus cleaner
At my work we've hauled asphalt in both aluminum and steel tandems. No issues what so ever, we do also give the box a generous bath of diesel.
I've only hold just a couple loads of asphalt years ago. The plant I went to had a place where you go up a ladder and spray some kind of liquid like soap in the bed. I'm sure it wasn't $4 a gallon like diesel.
Ya the plants around here have the same stuff and in my opion that stuff is only a little better then nothing.
Buy that solvent, its like $8.00 a gal, you can dilute it some, but not recommend by users. The stuff at the plant is cut like 50% or more, its just a show, they do
It does work, but at a high cost
