W.L. French Excavating Fleet

August 2022

The W.L. French Excavating fleet represents a family-owned company that provides a broad range of excavation services, environmental remediation, and soil & waste management. They work off the premise of "How you do anything is how you do everything!"

While some companies see their equipment simply as tools, the French family feels their equipment is a clear representation of how their company does business. This 2019 Peterbilt 389 is truck #237 in the WLF Excavating Fleet and it always leaves the company yard shining bright. It started out as a Fitzgerald glider kit but now the 275" wheelbase is decked out from the from bumper to the polished rear fenders. Power comes from a CAT 6NZ putting out 550 HP and paired up with an 18-speed Eaton/Fuller transmission. Custom features include flat-top straight pipes, a polished drop visor, and extra cab lights up on the roof.

The stunning red& black paint combination is accented by plenty of old school pinstriping. The company is celebrating 50 years in 2022, and they are looking forward to the next fifty. This new school beauty will be old school by the time that birthday rolls around!

Movin' Out would like to congratulate W.L. French on 50 fabulous years, and also for being chosen as our August Working Show Truck!
