We finished this job last week for a local customer. This customer has heavy flooring equipment that he needs to load and unload on a regular basis. The matching aluminum van body with stainless steel corners, the aluminum liftgate, and the fiberglass nose cone help create a professional image in the field!
We set this customer up with a Maxon, 3,300lbs capacity, aluminum liftgate and a large liftgate platform. This gives them ample room load/drive their equipment on an off safely and the capacity to lift large loads. In addition, the aluminum platform will continue to provide a great image for many years to come!
The inside of the van body is lined with plywood with two rows of "E" track for ease of load securing. The bottom 10.5" of the wall is lined with Apitong hardwood to handle the normal skids and bumps of being used. Additional galvanized steel plate behind and above the hardwood in the front of the body gives added protection. The floor is our standard 1.125" laminated hardwood and the rear few feet is overlaid with 1/8" steel.
Fiberglass nose cones are a huge fuel savings over the life of a truck. Light weight and corrosion resistant, nose cones allow the wind to slide around the truck in more laminar flow. This results in less resistance and directly influences vehicle mileage!
Thanks for checking out the post! We would love to help you with your next truck project!
