We’ve been ramping up production in February producing a large volume of truck bodies including tipper bodies, truck trays, truck trailers and custom builds. Throughout the month, we had the privilege of working on some great trucks including a number of Macks that came through the workshop. We had the pleasure of building tipper bodies for a couple of brand new trucks, a Mack Anthem and Mack Trident.
Before we build each tipper body, we always take time to talk to our clients about the types of jobs they will be doing on a daily basis and their preferences. This allows us to tailor each truck body to their specific business needs, so that they can be as productive and efficient as possible, in everything they do.
Mack Trident Tipper Truck Body
After consulting with our client, we got started on the Mack Trident. We fabricated a tipper which was 4.5mt long with a 1.15mt high body. This tipper was fitted with a range of special features including an electric tarp. two way swinging tailgate, extension ladder, stow away ladders, a JOST oil tank, and our very own engineered towbar assembly. To finish off this job, the new body was branded with our signature AA Diesel Truck Bodies stickers in a custom red, which really pops against the white finish on the truck.
Mack Anthem Tipper Body and Trailer Combo
Once we had determined the exact specifications for this truck, we ensured to take extra care in planning the execution of this project. This was the first time our team has had the chance to work on the brand new Mack Anthem, so the crew was very excited! Given it was a brand new truck, it was crucial we get every detail right.
We designed, built, and fabricated a 4.7mt long tipper truck body with 1.15mt high sides. We then added a custom trailer, ensuring that the height matched to the tipper, for those smooth sightlines when you look in the wide mirror! This truck body was then fitted with automatic truck and trailer controls inside the cabin, a two-way swinging tailgate for both tipper and trailer, an electric tarp and our specially engineered towbar assembly.
All of our truck bodies, including the ones mentioned here are built using the highest quality materials, made in-house using our specialised machinery, and crafted by our expert technicians. All of our tipper bodies are also made from Hardox Wear Plate steel, which provides long lasting durability in the tough Australian transport conditions.
