DuraClass Alumax heavy-duty dump body

The new DuraClass Alumax heavy-duty aluminum dump body is said to offer high strength despite weighing, typically, up to 50% less than traditional steel.

The Alumax features an 8-in. extruded top rail that’s said to resist bowing from heavy internal loads. The bottom rail, which includes an inside radius for faster and cleaner dumping, ties the deck, sides, crossmembers, vertical posts, and outside dirt shedders together to provide structural integrity.

Aluminum 5.75-in. I-beam long-members have an integrated rubber track and rubber riser to reduce shock and noise. The 4-in. stacked U-shaped crossmembers provide extra load-bearing vertical walls. The body’s crossmembers are on 12-in. centers and each one features a gusset.

Many configurations and options are available to meet the specifications of municipalities and contractors, says DuraClass. Options include additional oval light holes, center-sliding patchgate, and spill apron. The Alumax is available in a wide variety of lengths, side heights and rear heights.
