Truck body

The DuraClass Sidewinder spreads material during winter months and operates as a standard dump body in warmer weather. Its body sidewall prevents moisture and freeze problems. A front-mounted inverted telescopic hoist with hard chrome-plated sleeves eliminates the need for cylinder housing inside the body and minimizes cylinder contamination. The unit allows operators to spread up to 25-foot widths of sand or salt with continuous feed from the dump body. The construction includes COR-TEN steel, a heavy-duty braced tailgate and continuous welding.
