The Huntington City Street Department has a new truck.

Superintendent Bob Caley says he has been awaiting the arrival of the X-TREME Vac since he ordered it last September.

The truck will aid in leaf pick up, making what was once a five-man job a one-man job - a one man and one very large truck job.

The vacuum is so "extreme" that is boasts dual steering so that the driver may ride on either side of the truck while operating the vehicle, says Caley.
