They keep the pin protected and lubricated, so our pivot points require much less maintenance, and have much better longevity, than the average truck pivot point. With regular scheduled maintenance, our pins and bushings will last a lifetime. That’s why it’s easy for us to back every single pin and bushing with a no-nonsense lifetime warranty.
Frame Failure – Steel frames can develop weak spots. Doing heavy-duty work, out in the elements, especially up north where we drive on salted streets. Corrosion, and less-than-ideal structural design can lead to weak spots in the frame. Weak spots, if left unchecked, can create damage and eventually the frame sustains serious damage, which can cost serious money to repair.
Access for Maintenance – Traditional trucks are not designed for easy care. It can take hours for a mechanic to get access to certain crucial components, for example, the hydraulic tank. Traditional trucks have their oil and hydraulic fluid tanks installed beneath the bed. That means, in order to access that tank, you need to slide the bed out. This is a nightmare if you break a line or lose your fluid. You can’t slide the bed back to refill or repair the tank if you’ve lost access to your fluid. That’s why we designed our Low Loader for easy access the whole way. The hydraulic tank is integrated into the light-bar pylon. That way, no matter what position the bed is in, you can always add fluid to the hydraulic tank quickly and easily. And if there’s another issue, it’s easy for our mechanic to access, assess, and complete the repair or service in no time. Traditional flatbeds must be removed to repair the wear pads. This is a huge undertaking for a service team and takes many man-hours, resulting in high labor costs on your repair bill. The Low Loader is different. We designed it so that we can easily replace the wear pads without removing the bed. Our wear pads are 4 times thicker than average wear pads, so they will go that much longer before they need replacing, but when it is finally time to replace it, we can get it done in just an hour. Our winch hoses ride in a pulley system, like you would see on a forklift. The winch hoses are easily accessible for quick maintenance or replacement. Just an hour and we’ll have you back on the road.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
