Cross Underground Development, LLC. Converts Fleet to Felling Trailers

Cross Underground Development, LLC. is a Class A Specialty Contractor located in Chesapeake, Virginia. The company specializes in the natural gas distribution industry.

“We are a complete construction service provider: pipeline construction, maintenance, repairs, facility modification, and new construction,” says John Cross, Cross Underground president.

Cross Underground’s fleet consists of various equipment from excavators, backhoes, and horizontal drills to the trucks and trailers moving them.

“We currently run 20 to 25 trucks daily, depending on the day,” Cross explains. “With trailers, we are around 20 and a wide variety of equipment consisting of excavators, backhoes, vac, and horizontal directional drills.”

Cross Underground acquired the first Felling trailers paired with horizontal directional drills. For Cross, like many others in the industry, the Felling HDD Series (horizontal directional drill) FT-20 I and FT-24 I Drill Series (DS) trailers had what they needed: capacity as well as load-ability, safety, and reliability.

Additionally, the trailers are built drill-kit ready with steel mounting strips under the deck for mounting. They also include an elevated tank above the fender, drill rod storage, and more. The trailers feature ramps mounted on one side as well as a full-width ramp rod. They also include multiple tie-downs with key placements for safe transport of drills.

Cross’ advice for anyone looking to purchase a trailer for their fleet is: “Understand and know what your needs are, now and moving forward.”

“I love our Felling Trailers,” Cross says. “All the trailers we have work every day with no problems. Felling is definitely a step above the competition because of the quality and customer service we’ve received,” Cross says.
