Labor of Love: Ford Trucks Get the Job Done

By -

1989 Ford F-150 + farming

In honor of Labor Day, we not only appreciate the hard working workforce, but also the Ford trucks we use on the job. 

As most of us enjoy a three day weekend for Labor Day, we thought we might also give some appreciation to the Ford trucks that help us in our work everyday. Ford trucks have been on the job since the fist Model T came down the assembly line. And the Ford F-Series dominates many industries as the truck that we use to get the job done.

At FTE we have focused on many of the trucks that keep up the good work in law enforcementfarming, transporting and shipping, snow plowing, and much more. Ford trucks have been a cornerstone of the workforce, not just in the U.S., but across the globe.

This F-550 is looking good getting down and dirty for Sharper Image Landscapes.

We couldn’t resist. What’s better to tow your broken-down Jeep than a Ford F-150.

Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads! We don’t have all the details on this one except these very dedicated workers in Venezuela decided a little water (or river) was no match for their truck.

I’d have a better dodge joke if that wasn’t my boss’s dodge behind me #nobailoutneeded #ford #powerstroke #six7 #f250superduty #grading #ibuildamerica #toyotires #downeastoffroad #blueovallife #fordworktrucks #thatdodgeisprettynice #dodge #cummings

Notice the Ford is still coming out ahead.

1995 Ford F-series Snow Plow

We’re not sure we’re ready to even think about snow yet, but we know this hulking plow will keep those roads clear.

Everyone have a great Labor Day!
