Stellar has launched the latest body in its TMAX Aluminum Mechanic Truck Series, the TMAX 1-13. The new 13-ft aluminum body offers additional compartment storage and is intended for a 108" cab-to-axle chassis with 22,000- to 22,900-lbs gross vehicle weight rating, such as the Ford F600 or Chevrolet 6500.
“This new offering in our TMAX 1 Aluminum Mechanic Truck product line provides customers another excellent equipment option to fit their unique jobsite demands,” Adam Oppermann, product manager at Stellar, said. “As the needs of our customers evolve, we strive to make smart advancements in our products to ensure we can continue to be the preferred choice for mechanic trucks.”
Similar to other TMAX 1 models, the TMAX 1-13 Aluminum Mechanic Truck is ideal for cranes up to 53,100 ft-lbs, like the Stellar 86 Series Telescopic Service Crane. The TMAX Series features Stellar Torq-Isolator torsion box understructure and crane compartment. This feature is designed to isolate the crane’s lifting forces into the stabilizers and chassis frame, rather than into the storage compartment, avoiding unnecessary twists to the truck’s body and doors.
TMAX Aluminum Mechanic Truck bodies feature aluminum extrusion compartment tops with two built-in accessory mounting rails. These mounting rails eliminate the need to drill holes in the compartment tops, allowing for easier and faster mounting and relocating of accessories.
