New truck donated to the museum
« on: December 24, 2018, 11:28:24 PM »
The museum's new truck donated by Dean Copeland arrived in Sheepscot last week. The truck is an 1989 GMC Topkick that has a 18 foot dumping flatbed and will be an upgrade over the Yeti when towing the big trailer. Dean sent the truck up to Maine loaded with sawmill parts. Dave Allen from Chesterfield Associates Inc. sent one his employees down to Marshfield, MA to drive the truck up to Maine for us last week.

Really nice!  Maybe we can name our sawmill "Copeland and Sons", and not have to change the lettering!?

That is a nice looking truck, which means looks in great condition.  It was a great Christmas gift from Dean.

An almost new, tilting flatbed truck. Should be an extremely handy, multi-use vehicle.
Nice that you all work together.
Now the Ford fb has a big bro!

Where do the sawmill parts get stored?
