Metso Truck Body is 20-30% lighter than a conventional steel-lined truck body.
This lets you haul more payload per round, improving operational efficiency.
The rubber lining in Metso Truck Body lasts up to 6 times longer than conventional steel lining, drastically reducing the need for maintenance.
Once it's time for maintenance, the elemental composition of the rubber lining means that only the worn parts of the lining need to be replaced.
Thanks to the bolted fixing method, this is done quickly and easily without welding.
Better working environment
Metso Truck Body is an investment in the well-being of your staff.
Thanks to the rubber lining, Metso Truck Body is much more comfortable to drive than a conventional steel-lined truck body.
The proven benefits include 50% less perceived noise and 97% less vibrations, which significantly improves the working environment for truck drivers.
Each Metso Truck Body is engineered with a customized lining solution fit for the specific requirements of the operation.
This means that the body is suited for all applications. Sticky material that builds up in the truck body, also known as carry-back, can be prevented with Metso's Flexible Lining option.
With no carry-back, the entire capacity of the truck can be fully utilized to haul payload, which further improves operational efficiency.
Better fuel economy
The lower weight of Metso Truck Body in combination with the increased payload equals a lower fuel consumption per hauled tonne.
The benefits add up during return rounds when the truck is empty - it simply takes less fuel to move a lighter body.
Maximized wear protection at the lowest possible weight
The elastic rubber in Metso Truck Body absorbs the energy of every impact during operation, preventing it from reaching the frame and thus allowing for a lighter-than-usual, high structural strength steel frame beneath the rubber. Thanks to this, the body can absorb maximum shock at the lowest possible weight.
Bolted rubber elements require no welding during maintenance
The rubber lining in Metso Truck Body consists of elements that are bolted in place, utilizing pre-welded studs. Worn elements can be changed individually, and replacing them requires no welding or oxycutting.
Up to 300% longer wear life
High-quality rubber is excellent for damping impact and vibrations and is widely used to reduce stress and strain in different applications. Due to its high elasticity and material characteristics, the energy of an impact is efficiently absorbed into the rubber and spread out as heat.
The rubber lining in Metso Truck Body outlasts a conventional steel lining by up to 300%. For best results, the lining in Metso Truck Body is always custom-engineered to fit your application. Different thicknesses can be used in different spots, depending on factors such as load angle and drop height.
