Since the start of time, the evolution of the dumptruck has been spurred by one constant – time is money. State laws and restrictions are big factors here. A lighter dump body allows for more payload. The ROGERS ALUMINUM SERIES dump body is a lighter-weight solution for all standard hauling. Aluminum also provides a corrosion resistant bed material that is ideal for snow and ice removal applications. Rogers Manufacturing has built the standard on aluminum dump bodies.
The AB Series consists of aircraft-grade alloy material. Boxed style cross-members are placed on approximate 12-inch centers. Extra heavy-duty cross-members are used in both front and rear sections of the body floor structure. Heavy-duty extrusions are used for the longitudinal members. Various styles of tailgates are available, including straight, sloping, coal chutes, and hydraulic hi-lift. Various cabshield and asphalt lip sizes are available, as is an optional electric tarp assembly with rubrail springs. See below for capacity and dimension detail:
