I think alot of there trucks have the Kent Ohio lettering on them just because that's were it all started. However Here in Kansas there trucks say "Olathe Kansas" on them. I think they have alot of money just from the sheer amount of large scale commercial work they do. They do Arlington National cemetery and some other huge commercial projects, there tree division might be the answer to a lot of there new equipment just because there in 44 states and basically do everything.

Well all I know is every single Davey truck and trailer comes from the Davey shop in Kent, OH. They are brought there brand new painted green and lettered up and DOT set up then shipped out to whatever branch in the nation is getting it

I also read in turf Magazine that A company called greenleaf services works with davey to do the job. I Can only hope to get my feet in that door one day. Are they using the exmark mowers up there to? Also say the Kansas City Tree Fertilizing truck(freight liner) going through town today.

Im not 100% sure but I believe almost all Davey CGM branches use Exmark mowers for the most part, like we also have one Turf Tiger and a Cub Cadet rider.

What kinds of trucks do you guys plow with??
Never personally seen a Davey plow truck here...

Crazy how some customers PREFER a company with 500 winter accounts and 300 pieces of equipment! (Not directed to you or Davey just saying....)
