    Wouldn`t have any trade secrets to share, or shortcuts for a show shine would you?
    I have my methods but it seems to always requires too much elbow grease along with a good bit of elbow bending

    Are they hauling bulk fertilizer? And if so how do they empty the front trailer? Looks like possibly a end dump which would dump the load through the tandems. By the way very nice work.
