Stellar Industries has introduced a new low cab forward service truck, the latest in its line of aluminum mechanic service bodies in its TMAX series for service truck operators.
The Stellar TMAX 2-14 Aluminum Low Cab Forward (LCF) Service Truck. provides users superior turn radius making this an ideal choice for metropolitan and small working areas, the company said. It’s ideal for a 44,840 – 77,800 foot-pound rated service crane.
It also features the crane carrying reliability of the Stellar Torq-Isolator torsion box understructure and crane compartment, which isolates the cranes lifting forces into the stabilizers and chassis frame, not into the storage compartments to avoid twisting the body and doors, the company said.
The body side compartments are constructed of 1/8” high strength aluminum floors and walls, with double-panel aluminum doors featuring a bonded internal hat channel, Stellar said.
The TMAX LCF Aluminum body also features an aluminum extrusion compartment top, standard on all Stellar TMAX Aluminum Series bodies. The extruded top is formed of high strength aluminum and features two built-in accessory mounting rails that eliminate the need to drill holes in the compartment tops to mount equipment. Meanwhile, built-in accessory mounting rails are designed to improve mounting and relocating accessories. It also greatly reduces the chance of water intrusion into the compartments. The extruded top also incorporates wire harness channels inside the compartments for easy installation and to keep wires out of the way.
The TMAX LCF Aluminum continues to use the stainless-steel billet style hinges, three-point stainless steel compression latches, and double spring over center door closures found in all TMAX Series of service bodies. Each body is completely undercoated for additional protection from corrosion.
