Don’t let your big rig turn into a truck-cicle – Get your truck ready for winter!

Record snowfall is blanketing Western New York today, giving a sneak preview of the cold and snowy weather to come.

For truck drivers, the weather is not just annoying, but dangerous. Keeping four wheels under control on an icy road is trouble enough, but it takes a seasoned trucker to keep 18 wheels and a heavy load from slipping and sliding.

The road conditions are not the only hazzard for truckers. Jack Frost can do a number on your truck’s engine when the temperature drops. The folks over at E-trucker have an article that tells you what you need to know to get ready.

One thing that can help a trucker on an icy morning is an engine heater. Truck Trader Online features trucks with engine heaters, so you don’t need to hitch reindeer to front of your cab to keep your truck rolling.
