We had a stellar month delivering a variety of tipper bodies, truck trays, trailers, and custom projects. A large portion of our projects were custom builds with the team very keen to get new tipper bodies on a number of trucks including this amazing looking Kenworth T410SAR. This truck was standout this month coming into the shop brand new direct from the Kenworth factory floor for the Gippsland Truck Centre.
Planning and Design
This custom project required a lot of meticulous planning to make sure we got it spot on from the outset. We took the time to properly consult with our client about the kinds of jobs they would be doing on a daily basis and then we custom designed the specifications for this truck body to suit their unique needs.
Tipper Body Installation
After consulting with our client, we determined that the most appropriate measurements for the tipper body included a length of 4.7mt with 1mt high sides. This gave the body a maximum capacity of 10.5m³ which suited the jobs our client would be doing on a daily basis.
This truck body was then fitted out with all the bells and whistles, including an electric tarp and spray suppressant as well as a bartlett 127mm ball tow coupling. This project was particularly exciting for us as we were able to trial a new hard wired handheld tipper control. This complimented the truck cabin nicely and we were able to successfully install the new component without having to cut any holes in the dash.
