Stellar Industries introduces low cab forward aluminum service truck body

TMAX™  Aluminum Service Body

Stellar Industries has introduced the next step in aluminum service truck advancements with the Stellar TMAX low cab forward aluminum service body. The TMAX Low Cab Forward (LCF) Aluminum is the latest addition to the long-standing TMAX series, providing another level of options for service truck operators. 

The TMAX 2-14 aluminum body coupled with a low cab chassis delivers operational advantages. The TMAX LCF provides users with a wide turn radius, making it ideal for metropolitan and small working areas. Additionally, through the use of a larger body, operators won't have to sacrifice storage space and lifting capacity.

The TMAX LCF Aluminum is ideal for a 44,840 - 77,800 foot-pound rated service crane (The Stellar 7621 crane up to the Stellar 12630 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 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 for ultimate strength while still reducing overall weight. 

The TMAX LCF Aluminum body also features the iconic 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.  The advent of the built-in accessory mounting rails makes mounting and relocating accessories a breeze.  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, 3-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. All Stellar bodies are painted with a two-part polyurethane enamel paint for added protection and visual appeal. 
"We continue to work with customers to ensure we're meeting their ever-changing needs," said Adam Opperman, Stellar Industries Product Manager. "By adding the TMAX 2-14 Aluminum LCF to our product offering, it allows customers flexibility in choosing the right combination of equipment to fit their requirements."
