A Flatbed for Every Application




A flat bed is a very versatile work truck body, being that it can be configured for many different industries or trades and for a variety of uses. Not only can cargo be carried but tools and semi-permanent equipment can be carried for day-to-day use, for instance spray tanks, pumps, welding machines and air compressors.


And here are some different up-fits for different work truck applications:



Often a flatbed body will be used primarily for one application in one season and then refitted for another in a different season. An example would be a contractor using it in the spring and summer for landscaping work and refitting it in the fall with a sand spreader for snow and ice control contracts. So in other words a flatbed can be outfitted with a variety of equipment limited by the weight ratings of the chassis and possibly your imagination!
