Work Truck Wednesday Is Moving Stuff Day!

 





Delivery vans are more than popular in today's business environment. This unit is an excellent heavy-duty choice for many delivery business needs. It is tall enough to stand up in, the sides are made out of extremely durable FRP with straight and smooth sides for excellent graphics display. The inside has two rows of E-track to help strap in shiftable loads securely. This is important: It has a full-size roll-up rear door for full access to the interior without any doors to open or hold open. It is perfect for backing up to a dock or platform or even loading with a forklift. The front is aerodynamic to glide through the air with ease. The bulkhead is solid FRP to keep the noise in the back and not in the front. Excellent visibility, great turning radius, and so much more!

This great Supreme Spartan box van is mounted on the Chevrolet 3500 Express Cutaway Chassis with 9,900 lbs. GVWR, so it is ready to carry whatever load you need to give it. With a gas 4.3 liter V6, this unit has plenty of power and still has fuel efficiency.

Work Truck Wednesday Shares The Virtues Of The Combo Body




The Combo Body is a Service Body where the rear compartments have been removed and the floor is extended about 3' and extended out to the sides to create a very nice work platform. It usually comes with short fold-down removable gates around the platform to help keep things in the bed area where they should stay. This body usually has a heavy-duty forklift loadable rack as well. This creates a very useful body in that you have similar storage capacity of the Service Body, but the rear work area like a flatbed, hence Combo Body. The work platform is somewhat lower than a flatbed would be so it makes it very easy to use. You can pull out your chop saw and go right to work, then store everything in the body when you're done. It is a great choice for a wide variety of contractors and users.

The combo body can also have taller compartments. The standard height is about 41" and varies slightly with different manufacturers. This makes the top of the compartments come to about the middle or slightly lower of the rear window. The taller compartments are often 60" tall and are above the rear window slightly. Although very rare, a low-pro version of the combo body would be about 34" and the top of the lids would be at the bottom of the rear window. With the combo body being mounted more often now on medium-duty trucks, the 60" tall is becoming more popular due to the substantially extra storage space that it offers.

Work Truck Wednesday Celebrates The Contractor Body!

 





Today is Work Truck Wednesday and we're showing off a versatile work truck that is commonly called the Contractor Body. Why? Because so many contractors love this truck. It begins its life as a flatbed. In this case, a 12' flatbed. To that, we add two 8' long toolboxes mounted on top of the bed with fold-down doors and open-top lids like service bodies have. Then, there's the tapered headboard giving the truck body a smooth look as if it were made for this chassis. Next, we add a heavy-duty forklift loadable material rack, fold-down short gates around the back, a load divider inside the bed at the back of the toolboxes to be able to separate some loads. To top it all off, we add a great rear heavy-duty bumper with a full-width step plate and last is the trailer receiver and wiring plug. Sorry, one more thing: Look at those 60" long underbed toolboxes!

Oh, one more thing of importance. This great Scelzi body is mounted on the Chevrolet Silverado Medium-Duty 4500 with 16,500 lbs. GVWR, plenty of bells and whistles, and designed to carry the load for a long, long time especially since it is matched with a famous Duramax diesel and Allison HD automatic!

Work Truck Wednesday: Take Your Workshop With You To All Your Jobs!

 






Wow! The sheer volume of tools, parts and equipment that you can carry with this truck is off-the-chart. Meet the new Knapheide Combo Body in the optional 60" height. Look at how that extra height creates such space in the compartments. Add more shelves. Add drawers. Add compressors, AC power. Personalize it to your exact needs. This great body has a work platform on the rear with the perfect work height so you can use your chop saw, pipe construction, you name it. Then, there is all that space in the back for large parts like water heaters, AC units, and more. Add a bedslider and move it in and out without getting up there yourself. Just imagine taking your whole shop to the job site!

And better yet is the chassis this great body is mounted on. This is the Chevrolet Silverado Medium Duty 4500 with a GVWR of 19,500 lbs. to carry the weight of all that equipment in stride. Plus the added comfort of the comfortable interior. This rig is for you!
