Spec'ing Work Trucks

This 18-foot steel dump body has a combination double-acting and high-lift tailgate that works well with loads like large rocks, and a forklift can push palletized cargo aboard. The gate is operated by a pair of air cylinders, one on each side, so the driver can stay in the cab.
