R/S-Godwin Truck Body Company, an affiliate of The Godwin Group, now has an extruded side option for the AG series aluminum dump body.
The new smooth-side AG series aluminum dump body is an upgraded model of R/S's standard AG series body. Whereas the standard all-aluminum AG series body is a traditional formed sheet and post design, the new smooth-side AG uses extrusion construction on the sides and tailgate.
Extrusion side bodies are becoming more popular due to their fuel-saving, drag-reducing smooth sides, dent-concealing double-wall construction and attractive appearance. Weight-conscious aluminum body owners appreciate that the new smooth-side AG body affords comparable weight saving profitability to traditional sheet and post bodies. On most sizes, the weight difference is less than 200 pounds.
Like the standard AG, the smooth-side AG has a sturdy stacked understructure using 4” boxed (6061) aluminum extrusion crossmembers, and 5” I-Beam longbeams with tracked rubber frame cushions.
This body is also available in polished if desired.
R/S Godwin decided to extend the smooth-side option to the AG after the same option was hugely successful on the Hybrid series (aluminum/steel mixed composition) body two years ago.
