We just finished up 3 landscaper bodies for the team at Wild Ridge Landscapes! These bodies are tall sided dump bodies with double swing doors at the rear and a single swing door on the passenger side front.
The bodies have 1/4 cab protectors designed to accommodate a manual or automatic tarp system. Built for long term use, the floor of the body is build with 10GA hot rolled steel with 16" cross members and the sides are 12GA hot rolled steel.
Here is a veiw of the double swing doors in the rear and the hitch. We created a rear hitch setup that is designed for 18,000lbs of towing capacity and also incorporates a backup camera. The rear swing doors are latched shut with cam lock style door action for security.
A large side door on these bodies is designed to accommodate a pallet so if landscapers are laying pavers or bricks or even planting trees they have plenty of room to work and lots of access. All the doors on the body latch open in case the user needs to travel with the doors open.
Thanks again for checking out the post! Feel free to send us a message or check out Wild Ridge in Indianapolis, IN below!
We just finished up this unique job! It's a Ford Transit, 1 ton, cab chassis that we paired with a flat bed and stake sides. The bed on this van is a little lower than waist high which makes for easy loading and unloading.
A view of the rear including the backup camera, ICC bumper, and mud flaps.
The stake sides all are removable. These sides remove by lifting them out of stake pockets around the perimeter of the bed. Once the sections are placed in the pockets they all latch into each other with a "quick-latch" mechanism. This helps insure they stay where they belong!
Thanks for looking! Feel free to give us a call or a comment if you have any questions about a project you would like to put to together.
