March 6, 2006

ATLANTA – Medium- and light-duty OEMs met with buyers and body builders at the Feb. 28 Work Truck Show held in Atlanta. Discussions included limitations and chassis changes that will result from lower emissions engine designs, according to the Web site www.etrucker.com. Topics discussed at the show included:
  • How exhaust and cooling systems will limit placement of power takeoffs and other hardware.
  • That modifications to exhaust piping will be forbidden before diesel particulate filters.
  • Body and attachment designs will have to take higher exhaust temperatures into consideration.

    The OEMs committed to working with body manufactures to address their concerns, according to the report.
