A Busy Month At AA Diesel Truck Bodies

As October recently came to an end, its time for a quick round up of the jobs completed for the month. With all of the construction occurirng around Melbourne, the number of tipper bodies we are delivering each month is growing substantially.

Tipper Bodies and Tipper Conversions

In October, we built and delivered a large number of tipper bodies, including for both brand new trucks and used truck to tipper conversions. The tipper bodies varied in size, ranging from 8, 10, and 12 cubic meter capacity bodies. All were built using Hardox steel for the ultimate durability, with all of the hydraulics done in-house. We also applied our 3 e coat 2 pac painting system which ensures the paint will stay on longer, and is able to take a lot more impact than a regular paint job. 

Planning and Design Process

Our careful and attention to detail process allows us to build each truck body according to the exact specifications required by our clients. Once we get an understanding for the specification required, we sit down with the client and the salesperson selling the truck and discuss what sort of work the truck will be performing.

This is followed by a design process which involves drawing detailed and exact sketches to ensure that the body the customer requires is able to fit on the truck, and to ensure that all the weight distribution between the axle groups is correct. This part is crucial, getting this right means the body position is correct on the truck which ensures that the truck will never be over loaded on any single axle group, and that steering and braking is optimised.
