When many labor-centric startups make the jump from cottage industry to established business, they still show the signs of their roots. One of the unmistakable signs is a consumer-grade truck being used for hard labor. This is a rookie mistake. There are pickup trucks built for the road and the driveway. These are trucks that you can do yard-level work with: hauling mulch, helping your buddy move to a new house, giving your dog a ride around town. These trucks aren’t build for America’s toughest job sites, even though you sometimes see them there.
The people operating America’s fastest growing businesses need to understand that there are better tools out there for the job. Ford has been manufacturing medium-duty trucks for the real job site for many years. But their latest iteration of this popular product have made improvements never before seen, from any manufacturer. The new medium duty truck by Ford is stronger, more adaptable, and much easier to operate than ever before.
Ford accomplished these goals in some interesting ways. Ford engineers were able to put all of the major mechanical parts underneath or beside the cab. The fuel tanks are located right beneath the step up into the cab; everything else is tucked away out of sight. This means that the back end of the truck is very simple. You’ll be able to choose from different lengths and capacity designs that can be added to your truck, to make it a vehicle customized to the specification requirements of the work that you do. These trucks are also a lot quieter (45%) and more comfortable than previous models. This means less fatigue and likelihood of injury for your workers. Ford medium duty trucks are the best way to do hard work in America, and the new designs make them more fit for businesses’ unique needs.
