Eagle Service Center’s new 2019 Hino 258ALP Jerrdan Flatbed


Recommended Posts

A few months ago we ordered another new truck from Alan at Nussbaum Equipment. We ordered the truck with almost every option available.


After patiently waiting a few months, our 2019 Hino was picked up from Nussbaum Equipment in Columbia Pa on Monday and it headed straight up 222 north to Leesport to its first job. Paul Jr towed a Dodge pickup back to a repair shop in Elverson.


On Tuesday, Dan Nunemaker from DN Designs took care of the paintwork and lettering.


This morning most of the chains, straps and equipment was added. We have some additional toolboxes coming in for the truck as well in the next few weeks.

How is the Hino price compared to all the other trucks out there or didn't you compare and just knew you wanted a Hino?


A few years back we had a lot of trouble from Ford and their warranty and will never give them another penny.  At that time Chevy was getting out of the market, so we gambled on a 2013 Hino and have had great luck with it other than a few emissions issues.  It has been a great truck for what we do with it and great on maintenance and all too.  We needed to add a truck this year and decided to do an exact match to the one we already had and here it is.   As far as price... they are all too expensive  haha.  But the Hino is right in there with everyone else.   In the past few years we have bought at least 6 trucks from Alan at Nussbaum Equipment and he treats us right.  To be honest, I didnt even ask prices on this build... we knew exactly what we wanted.   In years past we have shopped around, and its hard to compare apples to apples anymore.  So many dealers order in "stock" trucks with no options, steel wheels, standard bed, etc.  When we ordered this one we went with air ride, air brake, aluminum wheels, galvanized subframe, lodar remote, in the ditch tool boxes (which we actually have one more 60" coming for it), 22' dual angle bed with rollers, trailer hitch.  I wanted to make sure we have everything we need.   Trying to compare prices on this truck with other dealers takes too long and its usually not accurate.   Nussbaum is also only an hour from us and they normally deliver.  The few times there has been any warranty issue, they have taken care of it no question.   Could I save a couple dollars shopping around, maybe, but so far we have been very happy.

This morning we picked up some trailer supplies for the new Hino. The truck was ordered with a standard 2” receiver. We added a tri-ball attachment and a pintle hitch as well. We also have a wiring adapter setup so we can plug into our truck lighting and adapt it to any common trailer plug.

The truck went to work on its first crash (white Nissan Versa) last night, followed by a dui traffic stop shortly after.
