Isuzu FRR - Landscaper's use of a Beavertail Body makes loading lawn mowers easy!



This Platform/Flatbed Body is being used by a Landscaping Company in Tampa, Florida. The body has a beavertail extension and ramp that enables the easy loading of mobile equipment such as mowers. Notice the extensive use of expanded metal, including in the headboard, the cabinet enclosure on top and the drop-down sides. This design allows for increased visibility, while looking back through the headboard and visibility into the cabinets.




The Chassis is an Isuzu FRR Single Rear Axle with a Standard Cab. This truck cab allows great visibility for the driver, being close to the windshield. The driver and passenger have a great view down through the side door windows which start at an elevation close to the floorboard. 

This body was installed by Knapheide Truck Equipment in Orlando, FL. Find out about Knapheide products at: www.knapheide.com
