Life Hack: Easy Truck Snow Removal
Household item makes snow removal a breeze, removing all the powder without the danger of scratches.
Many of us have to deal with the very unpleasant task of having to deal with the effects of winter on our trucks. If you don’t have a garage (or if your rig doesn’t fit in your garage) it is a drag. You scrape and brush away. And if your truck is lifted or rides on larger tires, it can be tough to reach the roof. But we found this nifty shortcut.
In this video by AutoVlog, host Michael Haim uses a leaf blower to remove the snow from his Raptor. And it works really well! He shows how easy it is, and how thoroughly the leaf blower gets rid of all the snow–even in those various hard-to-reach nooks and crannies, such as the tires. Plus, you avoid the danger of scraping your truck.
Of course, this won’t work for every type of snow. Heavy, wet snow is still going to need some serious elbow grease. But for light to medium powdery snow, this trick works great. It’s so easy that even a child could do it. Literally. Haim has his daughter help him out and it works well.
