Bonnell’s new bodies command attention

Bonnell’s new bodies command attention

Commander” evokes visions of a leader, authority, and control. That word and the word “integrity” are often associated with Bonnell Industries Inc— integrity in manufacturing, integrity in sales staff interaction with customers, and integrity in relationships with vendors and business partners.

These two concepts result in the Commander Series multi-purpose bodies exclusive to Bonnell Industries and its certified dealers. This design features a prism shape that tapers both toward the middle of the body and toward the back of the unit. The distinctive body design and heavy-duty conveyor chain or auger assembly allows for quick dispersal of materials without raising the body.
