BUSINESS CLASS BODY BUILDER GUIDE

Freightliner has rolled out Version 3.0 of its medium-duty body builder information tool, the Business Class M2 Resource CD. It’s designed to help body builders,
dealers and customers construct the right truck for their business needs by engaging them in vehicle design before a truck is physically built. It’s a serious time saver.

The new CD offers digital spec’ing abilities for the complete Business Class M2 product line which includes the 100, 106, 112, 106V and 112V truck models. Users can pick from a multitude of vehicle views including exterior, interior, axle, engine and component dimensions. The user is able to construct important dimensions of the vehicle, from the cab configuration down to the exhaust system.

First introduced in July 2002, the upgraded version includes improved graphics and an expanded viewing area, making dimensions and drawings easier to read and print. The extra room achieved by expanding the viewing area has also improved navigation, Freightliner says. Scrolling through multiple pages has been minimized and it’s no longer necessary to return to the main menu to start new dimensional designs on a different area of the vehicle.
Additionally, a user can select a new base model through the
top navigation bar.

For sales people, the information on the CD provides an understanding of the whys and wherefores in applications and engineering. Additional features of the new CD include the ability to save configurations and recall them later, eliminating repetition, and the ability to capture data codes in print mode for convenient reference. Chassis and body relevant dimensions are also consolidated in the new version.
