Whether it’s caused by a nail, screw, renegade branch or other sharp and pointy object, a flat tire caused by a puncture is something that most of us have to deal with at some point and time especially if you take your Jeep off road. And, while it can be a bummer, it is at least something that can be fixed quickly and with relative ease. The best part is, so long as the hole is located on the tread, the repair will be good enough that you won’t have to think about again. In this short video, you’ll get to see just how easy it is to locate a leak and how to fix it yourself using a tire plug.
Waste Management South Sound, located in Auburn, Washington, is home to a hauling site, transfer station, and the Pacific Northwest’s central maintenance shop. Because of the excellent fleet maintenance program here at Auburn, it is not uncommon to see many different garbage trucks from across WM’s Pacific Northwest sites here for repair. The man behind this program is Tom Repass, and with him and his amazing technicians, they are able to keep trucks from all over up and running.
We start the tour with with the pride of Auburn’s fleet – a 1982 International Cargostar Heil 4000 RL. I originally saw a picture of this truck in the annual Wenatchee Apple Blossom Festival. I was amazed at how good of a condition it was in, and so I spent the next few months trying to track it down. When I started my internship at WM in 2016, I was able to find out that this truck was registered to the Auburn yard. I reached out to the PNW Fleet Director, Ernie Christie, about this truck, and he put me in contact with Tom. The following morning, I received an email from Tom inviting me to come check out the truck if I’m ever in the area. Two months later, I finally got to see this beast in action along with Alan (West Coast Refuse Trucks). It originated from a company in Portland that got bought out in 2013. Because WM is contractually obligated to have a rear loader on site at Auburn, Tom decided to refurbish the entire truck and use it not only as a community clean up truck, but also as a show truck for other yards. Once in a while it even does bulky item pick ups! They did an amazing job with it, and the paint looks really good (Tom still wants to repaint the cab to make it perfect lol). We couldn’t leave without asking to see if they could fire the truck up, and thankfully, they were more than willing to show us the ins and outs of it. I’m fairly certain this is the oldest active garbage truck in all of WM’s fleet.
After the rear loader, Tom showed us his next project… a truck salvage program for the entire market area (9:38). Sitting inside a warehouse is about 50-60 cabs fully dismantled and parted out. The majority of them are Macks and Condors, most of which are from California. Because Condor parts are so hard to find, Tom is well known across the entire company and he said that if any site needs a part, they usually come to him for it. He’s personally overseen the dismantling of over 40 Condors.
Some other notable trucks in their fleet are the old school roll offs and tractors. Tom told us that the WhiteGMC WGs were bought from an Air Force base in Utah, and at the time, they were single axle tractors used for LTL trailers. They were in good condition so WM bought them, stretched out the chassis, and put roll off hoist on them. There are still many WhiteGMC WGs running daily here, as well as a few old Freightliners and Peterbilts, some of which are bleeding blue paint. I was also glad to see their Volvo WXLL Wittke Curotto Cans, both of which I found out run regularly. So despite the frontline trucks not being as unique, Auburn has still managed to keep things interesting between their fleet maintenance program and truck salvage yard.
A big thanks to Tom Repass for inviting us to come check out his awesome yard and another thanks to all his techs for their hard work! And thanks to Alan for tagging along – this trip wouldn’t have been possible without him!
Continental solid tyres are best for tough applications and are extremely stable, puncture-resistant and maintenance-free.
Able to withstand even the heaviest load, the MH20 tyres, and the treaded MC20, have a greater load capacity on smaller dimensions.
The damage resistance and high mileage performance of the MH20, regardless of the road service, combined with the wear resistant rubber compound increases the life and reliability of the tyre making it a cost efficient solution
