    Very nice truck, Texas bumper, large drop visor, Rod Pickett pipes. Thinking there is a C15 Cat under the hood with an 18speed behind it. Very nice ride once again.

    Single headlights are much better looking than the factory two lights. You running a low rider seat as well? My cousin, whom is my best friend, is running for the most part the exact same truck, long nose pete with a coffin bunk. Its white with blue and silver flames, and the name on the door. Otherwise bout the exact match to yours.

    very very nice, like the lifting bumper, air lift???

    we had a truck like your pete up here in the great white north, those pipes sure sounded nice on the jake. but since we were on mine property and the truck was all covered in mud, i didn't take a picture. the driver is to email me a picture of his truck all cleaned up when he gets south again.

    Thanks again!!!! I always order my peterbilts with the single square lights from the factory (you can't get them anymore on the new 389 model). On the 2006 that I sold below, I installed HID lights (they worked excellent, but were very expensive) and removed them and put them on my 2005, now I have removed them from the 2005....because it's sold pending buyer financing!

    Excellent Videos and Question for You

    Your videos and commentary were excellent. Thank you for putting those together for us.

    It is interesting to me that you get to load you own trucks.

    I only have one question. With all that demo debris getting dropped in there, how do you keep the truck and trailer in such good shape. I don't see any dents at all or nothing. All the demoliton trailers i have ever seen are bashed in and dented up from getting loaded with all that old demolition debris. But yours doesn't have a scratch or a dent anywhere. I can hardly believe it, even with your own careful loading, there must be a slip here or there. Please explain.

    I am impressed.

    Thank you again!!! With some of the smaller companies I work with, I load myself sometimes...as far as the other companies, I just stand up top and direct each scoop. When I load municipal waste at the transfer stations (keeps the trucks rollin when the demo is slow), I tarp the side of my trailers completely with a lightweight tarp. I also keep a couple cans of aircraft metal stripper with me, so whenever I get paint on something on the side....I can wipe it off (that's why I order my trailers with a milled finish oppossed to polished). Municipal waste is actually easier on my equipment than demo!!!

    Loading is only half of the risk of damaging equipment ....I go into some landfills and strip mines that get pretty nasty sometimes!!!

    I'm sure if I ask Chris, my cousin, about the lights he has seen them. I'll have to see if I can get some pics of his truck loaded on the computer for you. Him and I were in northern Wisconsin last year snowmobiling and one night, snowing like crazy, we seen 6 decked out petes with rock boxes go through on the street just a block away from us. Chris stoped and said I think that was Pat Eilens boys, from Hamton Minn. They have about 3 or 4 trucks that are all custom, go to Louisville every year and such. They were hauling salt to Iron County Highway Dept, and stayed at the hotel we were staying at. I got some pics of their trucks all dirty and in the snow, just proving, like yours do, that good decked out trucks do work and get dirty.

    I do this first :bouncegri....then I do this:roll .....and if that doesn't work.....I have a really really expensive tire plug kit!!!!!LOL

    Seriously....I get a fair amount of punctures in the tread surface of the tire, but I either plug them or get them patched. Every once in a while.....:Banghead you puncture the sidewall and ruin a tire...and it's usually on a new tire:pointhead !!!!

    Those are some nice rigs, but if you showed up on my job I'd send ya home. I'd be to scared to load that thing.

    We had one driver with a show truck that I loaded often. One day I sent a greenhorn to put some water down in the water truck, so I didn't get his truck all dusty when I loaded him with the trackloader. Well the kid sprayed water all over his wheels and some on his truck and I though that driver was going to kill him. He ripped the door open started to drag the kid out of the truck and stopped and in the nicest tone posable told the kid "its wise not to spray my truck with water". That kid was so white and we where all on the ground rolling.

    Always!!!!!!!!!!:rolleyes: :D

    Pretty sweet rigs ya' got there. I really like the air-lift front bumper. I was wondering about how it held up off-road and was going to ask the question but the King beat me to it, then the cell phone rang, recieved a dozen emails, and so on and so forth - gotta love small business:D

    Couple of questions: What kind of tonnage are you averaging per trailer load with the C&D and MSW? I am assuming you haul by the ton?

    How far do you guys have to haul to reach the landfill? Is it more cost effective to haul to regional landfills instead of local - or are there no local landfills? Your business is an interesting concept and seems to be a very good niche market to be in. Good luck!:drinkup
