Municipalities utilize a number of truck body styles and equipment for material hauling and snow and ice control duties. Combination bodies have come closest to delivering a single body style capable of doing it all and being relied upon as an all-season body. Yet, all of these body styles (including combination bodies) encounter limitations of some sort.
Henderson Products Inc.’s BlackBelt Maxx is a new class of work truck body, the first true “Universal Body,” according to the manufacturer.
The BlackBelt Maxx’s capabilities include: anti-ice applications, deicing applications, pre-wet applications, salt slurry generation, material hauling and high volume material conveying, perfect for feeding asphalt pavers or for shouldering projects.
The unit handles salt, sand, gravel, medium sized rock, asphalt, snow, leaves, dirt, ash, mulch and much more.
The BlackBelt Maxx’s features include: load sense belt tensioning, 54 in. (137 cm) wide pure belt design (no chain maintenance), planetary drive system (providing 75 percent roller-to-belt engagement), low working center of gravity (no hoist, avoiding interference with all overhead obstacles), steep 71 degree sloped side walls (material rests on the floor, not on the side walls), high capacity hopper, high capacity anti-ice liquid tanks, high volume material output, controlled load management and the system is available in 10 to 18 ft. (3 and 5.5 m) body lengths.
And finally, the BlackBelt Maxx expands Henderson’s growing lineup of green products with its anti-ice applications, deicing applications, pre-wet applications, salt slurry generation, precision material placement and multi-tasking capabilities.
