New Equipment: 2012 F550

Newly added to our landscaping arsenal is a 2012 Ford F550 cab and chassis diesel with a utility body.  Equipped with a 6.7 liter Powerstroke diesel engine and a 6 speed transmission, 4.88 gears, 360 horsepower and turning out 660 ft pounds of torque, this vehicle will pull virtually any load up and down the hills of San Francisco.

2003 Landscape Truck and Trailer

Our 2003 Ford F-350 Diesel proved to be inadequate for pulling our fully loaded trailer which weighs in access of 16,0000 pounds. Hauling this much weight up and down the hills of San Francisco has ruined 2 two new transmissions and is really working the third. Last year, while working on a project in Bernal Heights, we got stuck at the bottom of Elsie Street with a full load of gravel. Time for something heavier.
