Extension to Instant Asset Write Off

With the government increasing the Instant Asset Write Off to $150,000 per asset until end of financial year (before it was extended to December 31 2020), June was one of the busiest months we have ever had at AA Diesel Truck Bodies. The team worked around the clock to get everything completed on time and with the highest quality and craftsmanship possible.

Amongst the tipper truck bodies we delivered in June, one of our interesting custom jobs was a custom MAN prime mover to tipper body conversion.

Truck Body Design

Before we build each tipper body, we make sure we take some time to consult with our clients, ensuring that each tipper is designed and built to suit the types of jobs they will be doing on a regular basis, and to their own individual preferences.

Prime Mover to Tipper Truck Conversion

This prime mover to tipper conversion required some major modifications. The batteries were carefully relocated from the rear of the cabin and fitted to the driver’s side. To create space for the batteries, one of the fuel tanks was removed. Removing the fuel tank and relocating the batteries also allowed us to gain an extra 500mm in body length, and meant that the tipper body could be extended to 4.5m in total, which is much more desirable for those working in the earth moving industry.

All of our tipper bodies, including this one are made from Hardox Wear Plate steel, which provides long lasting durability in the tough Australian transport conditions. Each tipper body is custom built in-house using our specialised machinery.

Once the tipper body fabrication was completed, a 45 tonne pintle hook was fitted to the truck’s crossmember so that the machinery float could be towed onto the worksite. We then finished things off with a full in-house respray of the cab and body to an exact match of the client’s fleet colours.
