Vegetation Management Specialist Has Propane Autogas Trucks
Roush CleanTech is spreading the word that Asplundh, an international provider of vegetation management services to utilities and municipalities, is deploying propane autogas-fueled work trucks and is one of the first in its industry to do so. Charlotte, N.C.-area bucket truck with a 58-foot aerial lift is one of two Roush CleanTech propane autogas-fueled Ford F-650s operated by Asplundh. Asplundh operates a Roush propane-powered Ford F-650 bucket truck with a 58-foot aerial lift to prune trees in the Charlotte, N.C. area.
And an Asplundh affiliate operates a propane-powered chip dump truck in California, Roush says. “We were searching for a cost-effective alternative fuel that provides an adequate refueling infrastructure and also meets our environmental initiatives,”
Asplundh Tree Expert fleet services director John Talbot said in a Roush release. “Propane autogas was our answer.”
