    • I'm not a truck guy, but I'd guess that truck may be in the neighborhood of 300 horsepower. Not sure of it is a dually (2 tires on each side of the rear axle), as the angle makes it tough to tell. Dually diesel pickup trucks with gooseneck trailers like that can haul some pretty heavy loads, not tractor trailer heavy but heavier than you might expect, with towing capacities in the 17-30,000 lbs range.

  • The local tree crews that clear right of ways and such have specialty trucks that have huge open top boxes in the back which allow a lot more cubic capacity for brush and stuff. It seems like a truck would save a lot of time for you guys since you do a lot of clearing where you can’t burn and must haul to a landfill or recycle station. Have you ever looked at such a rig?
