Canadian Tire commissioned Ice Culture a company that specializes in ice sculptures to build a first of its kind, real, driving Ice Truck.  Watch how this custom built truck made out of 11, 000 pounds of ice came to life to prove how reliable the MotoMaster Eliminator Ultra Automotive Battery with AGM is in the midde of a Canadian winter.  

 

ANDREW: When we first started talking about it there was a lot of confusion about whether we can do it. A lot of worry about well is this possible?

HEIDI: It’s a first of its kind in the ice industry, most certainly

ANDREW B: We’re about to do something that has never been done before.  We’re testing our Motomaster Eliminator Battery. We’ve frozen our battery to -40 degrees celcius, and really put it to the test. We thought what better way to do it then a truck made out of ice. We wanted to create that kind of wintery environment, and start that truck. 

JOHN: I’ve lived here my whole life, and it’s a good way to test life in Canada. 

JOHN: This project right here was a bit of a challenge. They wanted to put 14,000 pounds of ice on a regular truck frame. This particular one had to be welded rigid because if it moves even a fraction of an inch it will crack the ice. 

ANDREW: So we searched far and wide actually to find a truck that wasn’t rusty, a suitable candidate, brought it into our shop, removed the body off of it, prepared it to run under its own power. 

JOHN: Because this has never been built before, and nobody’s even come close to doing something like this, we wanted to make sure there was enough coolant in the engine, so that it didn’t melt the ice.

HEIDI: Unlike your ice cubes at home which might have a white centre, which is actually air trapped inside, we remove all that air, so our blocks are crystal clear. 

We did some testing, and drove it over various pothole filled roads to see how that frame and the ice on that frame faired. 

ANDREW B: We’re taking the Canadian Tire Ice Truck, and we are going to attempt to drive it 1.5 km’s through the streets of Hensall, to set a world record. We wanted to create that kind of wintery environment, and start that truck.

ANDREW: It was very neat to prove to everyone that we could do what we set out to do. 

HEIDI: They are trying to make the cold, not only a challenge for their own products, but they are also making it more fun. 

JOHN: To have a frozen truck that will actually start and run down the road…that’s part of Canada.
