Skoolie wiper blades... some that work!

Ok its no joke... even with the new wiper blades put on my bus the day I got it.. (trico) .. the wiperes on a flat windshield are terrible at anything over 45 MPH....

it has a wierd screw on type blade clip and not the J hook like cars have..

what do you guys use that works good?

how do you look them up? school busses arent listed in even the commercial truck databases..

these blades seem quite wimpy.. and I do like to see out my front window when driving the bus in the rain....

Try a good truck stop. They should have all kinds of options from $10 bucks a piece to over $100. The silicone blades are the best, I've found. Just keep them clean. Work great. Last for years. Once you cross-reference at a truck stop, finding them online is easy. I believe they still sell them by length and connection style.

Good luck!

You can check the Carpenter Bus Parts website.

You should change your wiper blades TWICE a year - in the spring and again in late fall. Even silicon blades fade.

That's what I'm told. And I always religiously changed them out. But the silicone blades on my vehicles work like they're brand new. The oldest pair is six years old... Who knows?
