Truck Requirements

  • The most popular trucks for this application are the Ford F-450 & F-550 4×4 with automatic transmission.
  • Be aware of the location of fuel cells. Some 1-Ton (907 kg) chassis trucks have a fuel cell aft of the rear axle. This cell interferes with the mounting of the tree spade and must be replaced.
  • Trucks with automatic transmission require special application wet kits that require an up-charge.
