Post  topgroove on Mon Jun 11, 2012 6:51 pm

On the way to work today I was thinking I'ld end up a beat-up old truck....
They gave me a spanking new Material Handeler. The truck is absolutly perfect. I spent today and probebly the rest of the week stocking it and geting it ready. so far so good. I'll get some pictures of it this week.

First I've heard of your promotion? What's your job title?

I just got a new 1 ton myself. It's a Ford (diesel). Tons of torque! I'm not looking forward to explaining the first scratch though!

LOL... The last four years were mostly a walk in the park. Time for a dose of reality.

This one's mine. We got two "11s" and they both had tranny issues. The other one had the tranny rebuilt and mine just got back from a computer update. Yours use that cow piss too? Suspect

Is that a 550 Mike?

I just was given a new truck about a month ago. It's an F350, no bucket.

So Groove, I'm assuming your crew has a double bucket also (along with a linetruck)? How big is your crew(s)?

Yeah it's a 550! I like it so far. It's a lot cleaner now than in the pic though! Embarassed

we only have single buckets and two man crews. We have a bunch of apprentices so we can put together three man crews or 2 two man crews
