G. Haarmann & Co., Inc., Holyoke, Mass., says:

The 1½ ton Federal Truck we bought from you about a year agohas been in constant daily use, without ever having been laid up for repairs. Our daily trips average about 55 miles, and our truck has taken the place of four horses which we formerly used, and we have been able to give out customers better service. We have delivered material within a radius of 100 miles of Holyoke.

We feel that out truck has paid for itself since we have had it and it certainly gives us great pleasure to recommend the Federal Truck to any prospective buyer.
