Aluminum dump body introduced

Rugby adds aluminum dump body to its Class 3 through 5 truck bodies.

Rugby, N.D., January 14, 2011—Rugby Manufacturing recently added a new aluminum dump body to its line of Class 3-5 truck bodies. The new aluminum body features lightweight fold-down sides that provide versatile and easy access to the body. The unit’s aluminum construction provides the strength of a work truck in an attractive dump body. Aluminum weighs over 30 percent less than traditional carbon steel, decreasing fuel expenses and increasing payload.

The hardened aluminum alloy material provides long-lasting durability and eliminates the need for paint. The Rugby aluminum fold-down side body features a reliable stainless steel EZ-LATCH upper tailgate mechanism and is available with a crossmemberless understructure. Aluminum fold-down sides and tailgates are also available as options on standard Rugby steel bodies. Rugby backs each of its dump bodies with a three-year warranty.

Rugby Manufacturing is a leading designer and manufacturer of Class 3-7 dump bodies, truck and trailer hoists, landscape bodies, platforms, and related truck equipment and accessories.
