Our dump truck was too small... so we built it bigger!

A Tree Service is only as good as its people and their tools

We got a new tool in early 2020 that we've been over the moon about. Her name is Helen. She's our dump truck. You've probably seen her around. But she has an issue. It's not her fault though, its not even the way she was made. It's just the way she was modified.

When we first brought her into the fleet, we build a chip box on top of the dump bed. We built it low profile, thinking it'd be easier to build, less wind resistance, cheaper, etc. But it proved not to be up to the full needs of our chip capacity.

So we rebuilt it. We took the chip box off, built taller, beefier side rails and put the chip box back on. Now Helen is back in action and more functional than ever before. Hooray!

She's ready to work, whether it's trimming trees, removing trees, or hauling soil amendments!
