Custom Built Equipment

Sometimes you can’t find the tool you need so there is no choice but to build one. Or in this case, six. Hugh fills us in on the details.

Watched this unique truck doing small area paving in Connecticut today.  Tilcon’s  shop has built a fleet of six like this.  They purchased an Oshkosh frame/engine glider then added a self-unloading body in reverse with an auger front discharge chute.  An offset yard tractor cab installed up front. The chute swings with driver controls, used primarily for asphalt curbing and driveway aprons.

Pretty neat truck if you ask me. It’s nice to see that not all Oshkosh trucks grow up to be plows or front discharge trucks. Thanks to Hugh for the share!
