Cross Underground Development, a Class A specialty contractor located in Chesapeake, Va., specializing in the natural gas distribution, has converted its fleet of delivery vehicles to Felling Trailers.
Cross Underground acquired the first Felling trailers paired with horizontal directional drills. For Cross, like many others in the industry, the Felling HDD Series (horizontal directional drill) FT-20 I, and FT-24 I Drill Series (DS) trailers had what they needed; capacity, load-ability, safety, and reliability. The trailers are built drill kit ready with steel mounting strips under the deck for mounting (elevated tank above the fender, drill rod storage, etc.), ramps mounted to one side (full-width ramp rod), and multiple tie-downs with key placements for safe transport of drills.
“We are a complete construction service provider; pipeline construction, maintenance, repairs, facility modification, and new construction,” said John Cross, president of Cross Underground. Like many others in the industry, Cross Underground's fleet consists of various equipment, from excavators, backhoes, and horizontal drills to the trucks and trailers that move them. “We currently run 20 to 25 trucks daily, depending on the day. With trailers, we are around 20 and a wide variety of equipment consisting of excavators, backhoes, vac, and horizontal directional drills.”
Felling Trailers is a family-owned and operated full line trailer manufacturer located in central Minnesota. For more information, visit www.felling.com.
