From Battlefields to Boulevards, Oshkosh Trucks Bring in Wins
By Michael McClanahan / February 22, 2023

What do tactical military vehicles and snowplows have in common? A lot if they’re made by the Oshkosh Corporation.

Oshkosh Corporation builds some of the toughest specialty trucks and access equipment on the market. And O.J Watson Equipment brings them to your fleet.

Mission-Tested Vehicles Get the Job Done

Light, medium, or heavy, Oshkosh Defense® military vehicles are battle-tested. That same rugged, state-of-the-art technology is designed into their civilian work trucks.

From aircraft fire and rescue vehicles to snow and ice removal equipment capable of clearing runways and roadways in double-time.

Oshkosh airfield fire and rescue vehicles integrates combat-proven performance and advanced firefighting technology to deliver cutting-edge on-road and off-road firefighting capabilities.

Oshkosh snow trucks have a legendary reputation in the snow removal industry. Their line of blowers, brooms, and plow equipped trucks can take on whatever mother nature can throw at you.

The dual engine blower vehicle can throw as much as 5,000 tons of snow an hour as far as 200 feet. They’re synched to the truck wheels to allow drivers to concentrate on the path ahead, adding a large measure of safety to hazardous operating conditions.

Teamwork = Mission Accomplished!

It takes teamwork to keep airports and highways open and safe. O.J. Watson Equipment specializes in trucks and equipment to handle snow and ice control from the smallest lots to major highways and airport runways—in some of the worst conditions imaginable.
