Terry L. from Boomerang Enterprises based out of Brandon, MB on the performance of his HERD - Super Road Train on his Kenworth T-800.
I accidentally hit two deer at the same time and my pickup took a beating. I decided to upgrade to a full polished aluminum HERD bumper to take the place of my old one. The new bumper is very well built and looks great too. I'm very pleased with HERD products and service. Thanks
"After hitting a few deer with this, we couldn't be more happy with such a high quality and top notch product. To top it off, it always cleans up very nice to give in a nice unique look!"
"Not only do these bumpers look good and are built strong! But they have saved me and my truck countless times in the middle of the night when I'm traveling and there's no way to stop. These bumpers are more than just a status symbol on a truck and people know it and know how well they work when they are put to the test!"

"After hitting a 600lbs elk... other than the damage to the bumper just the head light and a few things down the driver side. The unusual cold weather and the fact it was hunting season drove the elk down. I was the 5th to hit one that night the sheriff said and I was the only one who drove away. There was an oncoming truck on a 2 lane highway when I hit it. If it wasn't for the bumper, the elk would have taken my left steer tire out and who kjnows what would have happened. For such a big animal your bumper is by far the best life/truck insurance I have ever purchased! Thank you!"
"I've hit 10 deer and one horse with my SRT (Super Road Train). The deer never really do anything. The horse broke the spring shackle horns off my truck and the whole bumper came off and smashed my hood in but without the HERD, this truck would have been totaled. I wouldn't run a truck without a HERD."
"I had a siezure going down the road. As of now its cause is unknown. I crossed over to the oncoming lane with no one coming at me. Hit a telephone pole, snapped it off with the bumper and the steering axle caught the lower portion of the pole and pushed in backwards. Then the bumper caught 6 white pine trees on the other side of the ditch. I've never had a truck with one of your bumpers on until now. I am fully impressed with the construction and thankful it was on the truck. I bought the truck back from the insurance company and plan to fully rebuild the truck. The bumper kept the frame rails straight and I can still open the bumper and hood."
"Best investment for my truck guys. Thanks for a wicked bumper. Tagged a 1200lbs elk at highway speeds and she held out good. Saved me thousands in repairs and downtime"
Dan B. from Light Junkie LED
"This bumper saved my truck from being written off. Hit this deer at 100kms while passing another vehicle, I didn't see him coming until it bounced off the front of my truck. I was able to continue driving till my minor damage was fixed at a later time. Most people couldn't believe I actually hit a deer since the damage was so minor. I can only speak good things about HERD for their good looks and durability. By far best add on I put on my truck. Others look similar but don't perform the same. At work we have a HERD bumper that is on it's 3rd truck. Countless deer and even a roll over and still looks great."
"Here's a few photos of our trucks. Love the product, keep up the good work!"
"All of our trucks are nothing but HERD Bumpers." - Shawn C. from Sweet Rides Logistics"
"I've already hit 2 deer inside 20,000 miles... definitely an outstanding product."
"Thank you for such a great product. I rolled this truck loaded with water and your bumper saved my hood and all the coolers under it. And, it still opens no problem!"
HERD Super Road Train and a Moose hit (French)
Chris Winkler of Winkler trucking tallies up the things his HERD Defender has stood against.
Winner at the 2012 Fergus Truck Show tells us why he won't make a trip without a HERD bumper ever again.
"I won't have another truck without a HERD."
"Your bumpers will not only protect you from insanely big animals but also your typical truck driver at your local truck stop. No one was hurt; the hood and some other stuff, but would have been much worse had the HERD not been on the truck."
"I wanted to share a story with you about my experience with your bumper on my pickup. Last week I was cruising down the interstate at about 73 or so and roads were a little slick. Running in 4wd and two mature mule deer bucks stepped out in front of me and I hit them both at the same time. Bumper held up amazingly. No damage to the bumper or pickup. Buying your bumper is the best decision I've ever made. Any pickup I buy in the future will be fitted with a HERD bumper. Thanks so much."

HERD testimonial in French
Darren tells us how his HERD saved him $15,000
"2019 389. I'm the first one in the fleet I work for to get one. Have not had to use the protection it provides yet but running the Texas highway's; it is sure nice to have peace of mind for when the need arises. 10,000 miles (so far) of varying roads and terrain and it is still just as tight and strong as day one."

"I'm very happy to have chosen HERD bumpers."
"Just a pic of my HERD I bought this past spring. Love it and it looks great on my new Silverado 2500."
"Love to own it!!"
"One of our customers was getting drug through the mud with his W900 to get into a jobsite to get wood out. They were using a large grapple skidder, and towing with the front tow pin on the HERD. Going up an incline, the skidder operator stalled the engine and rolled backwards into the helpless W900. The grapple hit the top tube of the HERD and only made a small dent. The owner of the truck figured without the HERD, the impact would have taken out the hood, ac condenser, radiator, charge air cooler and grill. Not to mention having to get the stranded truck out of the woods and towed in for repairs. He was another Ali-Arc customer converted to HERD."
"Loving the HERD bumper!"
Your bumper saved my 2019 Pete 389 from a lot of damage. I was traveling south on Hwy 18, 3 miles from Jal, New Mexico at 65 mph when a north bound pickup truck lost its rear tire and wheel striking the right side of my shiny new HERD at high speed. It sent that tire 100ft into the air and never touched my tractor or trailer. The bumper caused it to lean away from the hood and fenders of my Pete. Awesome!!!"
"I was driving late night loads at 11:20pm on September 12th I struck a 1500lb cow that was in the middle of the road, scared me to death! After seeing the damage my mind was completely made up. Never again will I have a truck that does not have a HERD bumper. My bumper will be replaced soon with another but after 7 deer and one BIG cow, I am extremely happy with your bumpers!"
"Thank you for making these awesome bumpers."
"I am an owner-operator in Canada. I run 2x a week to Pickle Lake in northern Ontario. In years past I have hit two moose resulting in total damages of $45,000. I purchased a HERD Defender 4-post for my 2007 Freightliner Columbia last fall. I recently hit a young bull moose near Savant Lake, Ontario. It was a 50mph impact hitting the moose with the left corner of the HERD bumper. The truck sustained NO DAMAGE and the HERD bumper did not bend or crack - NO DAMAGE! I will never own another truck without a HERD bumper on its nose. Thank you more than I can say!"
"Not even two weeks on my truck and over 1.5 million miles prior I took an elk from shoulder to hip. Not a scratch on my truck but sorry to say, the elk didn't make it."
"I was travelling southbound on highway 63 in Alberta just after midnight when a full grown female moose appeared in front of me after the glare of an oncoming truck's headlights went by me. I caught her from behind at 105kph. This was my first moose strike and expected the worst. Other than the HERD upper being bent slightly, the rest of the damage was minimal and cosmetic only and best of all, I was able to drive away on my own. If not for the HERD bumper, my truck would have been towed from the scene and had weeks of downtime getting repaired. That bumper was the best money I ever spent."
"You guys certainly make a good bull guard. 65mph with a deer and not a scratch!"
"I would just like to extend my thanks to you and your staff. The HERD SRT (Super Road Train) that I have on the front of my Peterbilt just saved me about $30,000 in repairs. I have an SRT on both of my Peterbilt's and I will never leave home without a HERD ever again!"
"Kevin installed a HERD on his new W900 tractor he took delivery of in August 2005. He ran Ali-Arc before, and after seeing the build and finish of the HERD, decided to upgrade. He has hit 3 white-tailed deer, a stump, and a rock. The most recent impact was a mid-sized Nissan SUV losing control on the slippery roads in northern Wisconsin, crossing the center line, and impacting the HERD on the driver side front. The driver side frame horn on the W900 was broken. Not a scratch on the truck. The HERD bumper and center section bent, but the truck finished out the day of hauling logs, and was driven to the dealership. The Nissan didn't fare so well. All occupants did walk away. The customer is happy to have minimal downtime, as the wood market is at its busiest right before spring break-up. He stated this morning without his HERD, he knows the damage would have been much worse on the W900, and would have been down for weeks."
