Stellar Industries launched the Stellar TMAX Low Cab Forward Aluminum Service Body. The TMAX 2-14 Aluminum body, coupled with a low cab chassis, delivers unique operational advantages, according to the manufacturer.
The TMAX LCF Aluminum is ideal for a 44,840-77,800 lb.-ft.-rated service crane (the Stellar 7621 crane up to the Stellar 12630 crane).
The body also features the crane carrying reliability of the Stellar Torq-Isolator torsion box understructure and crane compartment, which isolates the cranes lifting forces into the stabilizers and chassis frame, not into the storage compartments to avoid twisting the body and doors.
The body side compartments are constructed of 1/8-inch high strength aluminum floors and walls, with double-panel aluminum doors featuring a bonded internal hat channel. The TMAX LCF Aluminum body also features an aluminum extrusion compartment top, standard on all Stellar TMAX Aluminum Series bodies. The extruded top is formed of high strength aluminum and features two built-in accessory mounting rails that eliminate the need to drill holes in the compartment tops to mount equipment.
The advent of the built-in accessory mounting rails makes mounting and relocating accessories a breeze. It also greatly reduces the chance of water intrusion into the compartments. The extruded top also incorporates wire harness channels inside the compartments for easy installation and to keep wires out of the way.
The TMAX LCF Aluminum continues to use the stainless-steel billet style hinges, three-point stainless steel compression latches, and double spring over center door closures found in all TMAX Series of service bodies. Each body is completely undercoated for additional protection from corrosion. Additionally, all Stellar bodies are painted with a two-part polyurethane enamel paint for added protection and visual appeal.
