Asplundh GMC 8500 Tree Trimming Rig - By Jamie Groeneweg

Jamie Groeneweg built this Asplundh tree trimming rig from a Boley model. He narrowed the truck body, shortened the tower, changed the front bumper and scratchbuilt the cab guard/rack. Wheels and tires come from Athearn and the chipper is from Model Power. Both units were repainted authentic Asplundh colors in base/clear auto paint. Dry transfer lettering and striping was used to create the logo.
