ABSTRACT
This article presents suggestions for brush trucks that can have features which can enhance their roles and expand their capabilities according to the area. Bakersfield, California, specified a brush patrol rig with a low-profile body for improved stability and visibility. The pump panel and booster reel are located at the rear to keep them low and make them more accessible. With the booster hose paying out behind the vehicle, there's also less chance that the hose will become entangled with the rear wheels during pump-and-roll operations.
