Ox Bodies helps maximize payload with the introduction of its TrailMaker dump body. Constructed of carbon steel that offers the weight of aluminum, it’s said to be 35% lighter than standard Ox dump bodies. The company is a subsidiary of Truck Bodies and Equipment International (TBEI).
Designed specifically for the transportation of sand, dirt, asphalt, and small construction aggregates, the TrailMaker is available in 14- to 20-ft body lengths and offers capacities ranging from 7.3 to 33 cubic yards.
In addition to the durability offered by its carbon steel construction, a key feature of the TrailMaker is a dump floor free of weld seams to ensure payloads – particularly asphalt – are completely discharged, eliminating the need for operators to shovel trapped material.
The TrailMaker is also available with a wide range of options like retractable mud flaps that make dumping asphalt easier; a tailgate coal chute for efficient metering of materials; and cab shields ranging from 12 to 42 in.
Additional design and configuration options include side-mounted hydraulic tanks with sight glass, steel or Tread Brite aluminum gravel guards, as well as recessed and rubber-grommeted LED lighting.
