Owners: Helen & Delmar Feeser/ Driver: Bruce Folks
Taneytown, Maryland is the home of Feeser Trucking and one of the coolest dump trucks on the road today! Delmar (Sam) and Helen Feeser founded the company all the way back in 1970 and they are celebrating an incredible 50 years in business this year!
Feeser Trucking has an impressive fleet of 19 trucks in 2020, along with 12 hired trucks working daily for them. This is quite a success story for Delmar & Helen, who started with a single 1956 Ford F-800 dump truck back in 1970, that actually broke down on the way home from the dealership! The pride & joy of the current Feeser fleet is the 2013 Peterbilt 389 tri-axle dump truck that is driven by Bruce Folks. Bruce has been with Feeser for 22 years and he’s the dedicated driver of this dazzling dirt hauler. The name on the back of the truck is “She Only Smokes When She Drinks” but this truck is always smokin’ hot with its deep green paint and polished dump body. Bruce takes a great deal of pride in keeping the truck show ready all year round.
The truck was purchased from Hunter Truck in Lancaster, PA as a glider kit and assembled by Matt Harman and Bob Brown. In fact, Feeser Trucking has built 16 glider trucks in 29 years, but this polished Peterbilt is the showpiece of the company! Power comes from a C15 CAT engine that’s paired with an 18 speed transmission. There is plenty of bling on this dump thanks to a stainless drop visor, custom stainless rain guards by Pro-Fab, stainless battery box lids, an 18” Texas square bumper, and a set of 6” x 108” Grand Rock straight exhaust stacks with flared tops. The truck shines bright at night thanks to the 115 LED lights that have been installed! A Shurlock tarp covers the 16 ft. J&J dump body that is so shiny that it looks like a mirror.
Bruce credits Chuck Ollis and Kimmee Gebhart, from First Impression Polishing, for keeping the truck shining bright! There are also some incredible murals on the cab and hood which were done by Chuck Gamber from the Jack of Arts Studio in Ellicott City, MD.
Bruce enjoys representing the company at various truck shows and he wanted to send a special thanks out to his wife Stacy for all of her love & support, and her polishing help at the shows! He credits the entire Feeser family for giving him a job 22 years ago and making it possible to drive this showstopper on a daily basis. Hard work does pay off, and Feeser Trucking is a prime example of what 50 years of just that. Movin’ Out would like to salute Delmar & Helen Feeser and the entire Feeser Trucking family, including Bruce & Stacy Folks, for an incredible 50 years. Here’s to another 50!
