    We have a Mitsubishi Fuso flatbed dump that has sides on it for hauling mulch, etc. - so we just shoot the chips into there.

    Looks good a lot better than all the rusted yellow beat up ones runnin around town. What areas do you cover? I really don't mess with tree work and would rather pass it off to someone smaller instead of one of the big guy's around here

    no amount of savings makes it worthwhile to run unsafe equipment if you ask me, but nice job on the work, it looks brand new

    Man, I wish I had one... I had 2 loads of branches and small trees today. 16 foot open trailer, flatbed, miserable it is. Getting them loaded, strapping, unloading. Actually the unloading is the easy part. Have a tractor ot out place, I take the loader set it on top the trailer, keep the tractor stationary, and pull the truck and trailer forward. Piece of cake

    Hey that looks great! What kind of paint did you use? That's a good idea to rehab an old one. I'd like to have the same set-up, because renting sucks!!!
