Muscatine Iowa Combines Two Unusable Trucks
The City of Muscatine in Iowa took two unusable trucks, and turned it into one now functioning Public Works Vehicle. The two vehicles were a 1995 dump truck and a 1997 Vactor flusher truck. On the dump truck, the frame was rendered useless due to rust. And the Vactor unit on the flusher was damaged “beyond repair”. Instead of disposing these two units, Manager Randy Howell came up with a plan to replace the vactor equipment with the dump truck equipment, creating a functioning truck. The Truck was approved for one the road use by the Iowa DOT in April.
