Sunset Septic & Excavating, LaPorte, Indiana

Jon and Cody Housekneckt added a 2012 Kenworth T660 converted box truck carrying a 3,500-gallon Du-Mar Welding steel tank and Jurop pump. The truck is powered by a PACCAR 455 hp engine tied to a 10-speed Eaton Fuller transmission. The truck was assembled at Sunset Septic, with 4 feet cut off the frame for tank installation. Pik Rite provided aluminum side trays and a back splash plate with the company name stamped out and lighted. Features include a 3-inch inlet and 6-inch dump valves, a 6-inch drop in the tank — front to back, sight tube and rear sight glasses, and a 24-inch rear manway. Interior features include AC, cruise control, stereo and air-ride seats. Graphics were created in-house by Gale Housekneckt. Jon and Cody are the drivers and the truck is used for residential pumping.
