A Rather Large Mining company in a Certain Town in the middle of the state has been ordered by the EPA to install a truchwash, so they've come to us for a quote. Which I gave them. It was less than $100k for a wash that will clean 4m wide Volvo A35D. Their comment on the quote?

"That's a bit much. What if you use a smaller motor? And less concrete. And cut out the two side booms. And what if you cut out the automated system to make it manually operated?"

This company produces 100 metric tons of zinc ore concentrate per week, 30 tonnes of silver ore concentrate per week, and 2 x 5kg gold ingots every 3 days. A pissy <$100k truck wash is "too expensive."
