As landscaping companies begin planning for winter snow and ice removal, DuraClass is pushing hard to attract their attention to its “Sidewinder Jr.” dump body, which was specifically designed for both standard dump use and snow and ice control.
The 3-4-yard Sidewinder Jr. is designed for medium-duty truck applications and complements the larger 5-14-yard capacity DuraClass Sidewinder dump body. With its compact size, the Sidewinder Jr. increases maneuverability while minimizing clearance concerns, an important consideration for landscape professionals.
The body is easily prepared for unexpected early or late snowfalls, according to DuraClass, and can be used for mid-winter construction events, such as water main breaks, without having to remove sanding equipment. The Sidewinder Jr. delivers salt or sand to the front of the truck’s tires through a conveyor system, providing added traction for traveling up and down hilly terrain.
The Sidewinder Jr. is also available in stainless steel construction, offering significant corrosion resistance and durability.
With more than 100 years of engineering and manufacturing expertise, DuraClass makes a range of premium Class 3-8 dump bodies, in addition to hoists and related equipment. DuraClass is part of Truck Bodies and Equipment International (TBEI), whose other brands include Crysteel, Rugby, J-Craft and Ox Bodies.
