Nevada FFA’s heavy-duty service truck has become an important assets for the chapter’s service work, moving business, and transportation needs. The truck is set up to pull the FFA implement trailer with electric brakes and lights.
The service body has multiple tool cabinets where hydraulic jacks, load binders, clevises and tools can be kept until on the work site. Recently the truck hauled two pianos and appliances for $500, an engine stand and a trailer load of recycled metal sold for $65, two FFA community garden water tanks filled and transported, and a $400 brush and tree limb cleanup.
“This truck is becoming an essential resource for the chapter’s learning and earning” stated Kevin Cooper, Nevada High School agriculture education instructor and FFA advisor. The chapter also received $250 for removing sheet metal siding on a set of buildings, bringing total revenue to $1,215 within six weeks of active usage.
Van Wall originally donated the truck in 2017 from their fleet of service trucks.
