Work Truck Wednesday: All-Day, Whole Crew Landscape Dump

 






The All-Day, Whole Crew Landscape Dump refers to the volume of landscape debris this truck can handle along with a full crew with plenty of leg and hip room. 

This unit is the 2021 LCF 4500 Crew Cab with the 6.6 gas V8, six-speed automatic heavy-duty chassis designed to carry the load with its 14,500 lb. GVWR rating. Just look at how heavy duty the wheels are that this gives you an instant clue to how well this truck is built to do work. There is so much room in the cab for the whole crew. The turning radius is only 45' for such a good-sized truck. The visibility and ease of driving are legendary. 

The body is a Martin 15' Landscape Dump body with steel sides, wood floor, including under-bed toolbox storage. The body is built strong and Martin Truck Body has even thought to protect the rear tail lamps and turning signal from harm.

Landscape season in the Southland is always in session, so get this while it is available.

Work Truck Wednesday: The 4x4 Crew Cab 4500 with Knapheide KUV Body





This great truck body is so often called a plumber's body because plumbers love it for all the space it has as well as all the storage compartments for tools, parts, and more. It could just as well be called an electrician's body, or a remodeler's body, or a carpenter's body, or a landscaping body because it can be so useful for a wide variety of contractors. With an inside height of 73" being able to stand up inside is so helpful. The long shelves inside along with the E-track for holding cargo where you want it held. Then all those compartments outside too. No wonder it is so popular. This unit is just slightly over 11' in length.

All this and the body is mounted on the Silverado Medium-Duty 4500 4-wheel Drive Crew Cab with the legendary Duramax diesel engine mated with the Allison automatic, AC, and so many other features including aluminum wheels! It's a worker and a looker!

These don't last so get it while it's available.

Happy Veterans Day From Paradise Fleet


Happy Veterans Day

On November 11, 1919, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson issued a message to his countrymen on the first Armistice Day (changed to Veterans Day in 1954), in which he expressed what he felt the day meant to Americans:

ADDRESS TO FELLOW-COUNTRYMEN

The White House, November 11, 1919.

A year ago today our enemies laid down their arms in accordance with an armistice which rendered them impotent to renew hostilities, and gave to the world an assured opportunity to reconstruct its shattered order and to work out in peace a new and more just set of international relations. The soldiers and people of the European Allies had fought and endured for more than four years to uphold the barrier of civilization against the aggressions of armed force. We ourselves had been in the conflict for something more than a year and a half.

With splendid forgetfulness of mere personal concerns, we remodeled our industries, concentrated our financial resources, increased our agricultural output, and assembled a great army, so that at the last our power was a decisive factor in the victory. We were able to bring the vast resources, material and moral, of a great and free people to the assistance of our associates in Europe who had suffered and sacrificed without limit in the cause for which we fought.

Out of this victory there arose new possibilities of political freedom and economic concert. The war showed us the strength of great nations acting together for high purposes, and the victory of arms foretells the enduring conquests which can be made in peace when nations act justly and in furtherance of the common interests of men.

To us, in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service, and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of nations.

-- WOODROW WILSON
