In this staged photo, Steve Murray of Steve Murray Trucking, Hooksett, New Hampshire, demonstrates how some drivers may be required to spray their truck bodies with release agent by hand. The plant may have a station set up before the loadout area where the truck driver will exit the safety of the cab, ascend a platform, and use a wand to lubricate the truck bed.
