It is the perfect choice for solving a common relevant problem affecting dump vehicles.
A truck chassis receives severe hammering from the tipper body caused by potholes and bumps on the road surface.
Driving on corrugated roads or across building sites (quarries, construction or mining sites) can cause severe damages to the chassis. The rattling of the dump body does not cause only a high noise nuisance, but also quite unnecessary wear and tear to the chassis, to the dump body and to the hydraulic tipping gear itself.
Bodyfix resists the forces which occur both in light and heavy load conditions.
It stops the rattling of the dump body on the chassis and prevents damages
It avoids unnecessary wear and tear while travelling
Reduces noise nuisance
It creates a “fixed” connection between the dump body and the chassis.
The compression load in the power block can be adjusted by the continuous bolt and nut, depending on where the Bodyfix is fitted and on the dimensions of the dump body.
The compression load can vary from 550 to 3527 lbs.
A locking bar (mounted on the chassis underneath the dump body) engages with the hook (installed on the body) as the body is lowered and the weight of the body itself forces the hook over centre into the lock position.
The compression load in the power block is sufficient to clamp down an empty tipper body and prevent rattling.
