NEW BOWELD Truck Bodies has launched a steel, single-skin, light-weight muckaway tipper body, which it says will increase potential payloads for operators.
The irst of ive single-skin Taperlite bodies, which has European Design Registration, has been built for Manchester demolition and earthworks company PP O’Connor. As a stand-alone body, it weighs 1,730kg, with an additional 470kg for the Edbro CX14 lifting gear. The Taperlite, as the name suggests, tapers from front to rear by 4in.
