Plant Bodies

7.5 tonne lightweight alloy

Truck Hydraulics have a super-lite body for 7.5 tonne application. We can supply these with or without alloy drop sides. Dependent on crane and chassis type a 3 tonne payload is usually achievable. (see 7.5 tonne images)

Builders Merchant

Our builders merchant alloy dropside body gives strength and durability with low weight doors for manual handling. The doors offer strength through our tie rod system which holds the door planking together. This has proven to as much as double the life span of doors held together by cappings alone, this system is standard at truck hydraulics.

We offer pesca lock or anti-loose door close systems.

We offer hard wearing hard wood or phenolic alloy flooring to cater for all the knocks of a wide range of materials typical of builders supplies.

We offer fully boltable spray suppression, one thing we have found is that no matter what you do to prevent the rear spray suppression from being caught on a kerb and removed against its will this will always happen, we have made all our wing fixings boltable so if this does occur there are no costly repairs, we use uniform parts which can be changed very easily avoiding costly repairs and time off the road.

We also offer rear sign boards and a variety of body access options.

Heavy Duty Flat bodies

We offer a wide range of heavy duty flat bodies. This type of body is usually suited to vehicles fitted with cranes from 20-100 t/m. With this application we would manufacture the subframe and body frame, it would then be shotblasted if required and painted to customer specification. Next, the crane and the body flooring are fitted to complete the build; this has proven to prolong the lifespan of a body as all necessary areas are sealed and painted.

Specification can include:

  • Extendable rear frames (up to 6ft) which can house light clusters, LED strodes, number plate, extendable twist locks to suit containers up to 10ft wide.
  • Heavy Duty fold flush lashing rings.
  • Sockets and poles for hand rails.
  • Crane foot pads. (see accessories).
  • Various Ladder rack options.
  • Fold out ladders for body access.
  • A variety of chain storage options from lift floor wells to trays under the crane storage to air operated fold out storage.
