    What kind of equipment did you guys start out with. I currently do landscaping and some tree work but am thinking of have a full time tree crew next year. Thinking of starting with a bucket truck with a chipper body and a Vermeer BX1200XL chipper and all the saws rigging and climbing gear to go with it. Any suggestions on bucket/chipper truck combo's international, frieghtliner, ford. Also does anyone run flatbeds with buckets on them similar to this picture i posted if so how do you like them?
