ER Trucking Co. of Hartford, Ky., has been maintaining the roadsides of Kentucky for decades. A family-owned and operated company established in 1980, ER Trucking Co. takes earthmoving and landclearing very seriously. They have become one of the largest forestry-mulching contractors in the state.

When FAE began, it produced forestry and agriculture equipment, thus the name FAE was derived. However, FAE has always been a very dynamic company and therefore developed various products for different industries such as ag, forestry, construction, mining, demolition, land management, full depth reclamation, etc.
