SWB 10' Contractor Is Great Combination

This is a short wheel base (141") 60" cab to axles F350 Ford Chassis with a Carter Industries 10' Contractor Body with the Aluminum Box Package. It also has fold-down, removable gates around the rear, a HD Forklift Loadable Rack, Class IV Receiver. They did an extra tasty touch by adding stainless steel pieces to the top of the rack. Nice.

What's great about this combination to me is that the turning radius is very similar to a plain old 8' pickup truck, yet we have a 10' HD bed that can get a lot of gear to and from the job site. This gives the 60" CA chassis a good deal more maneuverability than the typical 12' Contractor on the 84" CA with a 165" wheelbase. Big difference. These shots were taken some time ago at Razzari Ford in Merced.
