Our Equipment

We run a mix of trucks ranging from a 1969 2.5 ton military truck to a 2006 Ford F-750 built by Wildfire. Each truck carries a story. From its previous life Vernon CT to the community pulling together to build a truck from donations.

Spicer 3053A 5 speed Transmission
750 gallons water

This truck came from Archer City. The original color was white and it was painted lime green and we updated most of the lights to LEDs to reduce the load on the alternator. This truck is our "brush beater", the only truck in our fleet that has earned the right to be called so.
