BrandFX Light Weight, Fuel Efficient, Service Bodies

Sponsored by

BrandFX composite utility & service bodies fit chassis with a cab to axle of 39" to 84". These composite bodies offer a powerful return on investment with 40% weight savings over an equivalent steel body. In a recent study comparing a Ford F-350 with a 1000-pound composite body with a Ford 350 and a 1500-pound steel body, the heavier body was found to have an increased emissions penalty of 52%, used 2.6% more fuel, and required more frequent maintenance of tires, brakes, and shocks. Many fleets re-use composite bodies, transferring them over two or three chassis life cycles, while averaging resale values of 35 to 50% more than steel. That is a powerful return on investment. Standard features include all stainless steel hardware, rust free composite construction, air-tight/water-tight ventilated compartments, tough .25 ml. gel coat exterior, and PVC high-density foam core.
