Knapheide Develops Bodies for Transit Cutaway, Chassis Cab
The Knapheide Manufacturing Company has developed a full line-up of bodies for the 2015 Ford Transit cutaway and chassis cab. The selection includes the enclosed utility body (KUV) and service body, along with Knapheide’s Value-Master X platform body.
The KUV features externally accessible secure storage compartments with an oversized enclosed cargo area and conduit chutes. The abundant storage offers increased productivity and efficiency through better organization for plumbing, electrical, and construction applications. A total of nine standard models are available which include several different body height and length combinations compatible with Transit cutaway chassis, according to the company.
Products available for the Transit cab chassis include the Knapheide service body and Value-Master X platform body. Much like the KUV, the Knapheide service body provides secure and versatile storage, enabling mobile technicians to find the parts, tools, and equipment they need when they need them, according to the company. Knapheide’s Value-Master X platform body features a reinforced understructure and a variety of floor materials to choose from including pine or apitong wood, smooth steel, and tread plate. The Value-Master X has proven its versatility in landscaping, construction, and agriculture environments.
All bodies for the Transit cutaway and cab chassis are constructed of rugged galvanneal steel and fully immersed in Knapheide’s exclusive electrodeposition prime paint system translating into superior corrosion resistance and years of reliable service in the field, according to the company.
