NH Oil Undercoating

Here in the heart of New England, it is common knowledge that road salt eats cars.  The salt and harsh chemicals used to keep our roads safe in the freezing winter temperatures cause harm to the frames and metal components exposed to the elements well beyond the winter months.  Bulldog Fire Apparatus has partnered with NH Oil Undercoating to provide the best protection for your vehicle’s frame and vulnerable metal components.  Protect your ambulance or fire apparatus from frame cracks, rot, deterioration and preventable road chemical damage with a NH Oil undercoating, now available at our service department.  Annual application will significantly reduce the damage caused by salt and road chemicals. Contact our Woodville facility for more information.
