What vehicle setup do you recommend for design/build installation?

“Ford F550 dump truck and hydraulic dump trailer. With a cab and chassis system you can utilize fold-down sides for easy access, the tailgate chute can fill a wheelbarrow in five seconds, the dump trailer with ramps can load equipment for transport, the dump trailer can be a production back-up while your truck is doing something else and bulk materials can be loaded into dump trailer, while equipment can be strapped in the cab and chassis box.

“Dodge 5500 with four-wheel drive, a custom box behind cab, side door on dump bed, gravel chute in rear, pulling a skid-steer trailer. We chose this setup because the truck can legally haul everything we’re transporting to the job site, while carrying all tools typically needed for most jobs. This eliminates a lot of lost productivity by loading tools every day. The gravel chute in the rear helps labor hours in installing rock, and the side door is a necessity in loading pallets. It’s a year-round tool with four-wheel drive and a plow. It’s one of the best decisions we’ve made.”
