On any given day, as anyone looking to purchase a used Bucket Truck, or similar piece of equipment (Digger Derrick Truck, Forestry Truck, Grapple Truck, Boom Truck, etc.) has learned, there are often quite a number of vehicles to choose from either through specialized vehicle brokers or online dealers like I-80 Equipment. What makes things a bit more complicated is the fact that Bucket Trucks come in a variety of sizes and have often been customized by their previous owners to specific job-specifications. If your lucky, the odds are a few of the trucks you come across will match what you’re looking for. The question then boils down to which dealer to choose when you’re ready to buy.
More often than not, that one perfect bucket truck you’ve found won’t be anywhere near where you need it. To make the process a little easier, I-80 Equipment has come up with what they feel is a surefire way to seal the deal. For the conceivable future, if an I-80 customer buys one of their in-stock trucks, then I-80 will provide free one-way airfare to the nearby Quad Cities Airport in Moline, IL to make picking up the truck less of a hassle. Located in the heartland of America, I-80 Equipment has built a well-deserved reputation focusing on quality. The family-run business emphasizes one-on-one customer relationships and a willingness to stand behind their products.
All of the trucks offered by I-80 Equipment go through an extensive 6-step reconditioning process. Initially, each bucket truck or other specialized vehicle is completely disassembled. Each of the disassembled truck’s metal parts are fully soaked in degreaser and power-washed. Then the truck is brought to the body bay where it’s sanded down to factory primer. At this point all dents are pulled. Any problem parts are replaced with new ones. After applying a new coat of primer and sanding the parts with 320-grit sandpaper, the truck is sent to the paint bay.
For added protection, the chassis and steel boxes are sprayed with DuPont Corlar® epoxy primer. Then a DuPont Imron® 2.8HG™ industrial paint top coat will be sprayed on and truck will be heat treated to 100°. After this, the bed liner is sprayed with 100-mil thick protective Line-X coating. Once the painting is finished the truck is reassembled and detailed. The final phase in the reconditioning process is a 77-point mechanical inspection where Engine, Power Tran, steering suspension, brakes, electrical system, cab and body, tires wheels and rims will all be certified to meet or exceed federal inspection standards. For added peace of mind, when they’re done, I-80 sends the vehicle to an outside source to get federally inspected and certified.
To sweeten the deal, I-80 even offers free one-way airfare when you purchase an in-stock vehicle. Any way you look at it, there’s no one that goes the extra mile to sell a Bucket Truck the way I-80 does.
