Reading Truck Body Introduces New SL Dump Body to the Marauder Line
September 28, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsReading Truck Body, LLC has engineered a new SL Dump Body to add to the rugged Marauder Dump Body line. The SL Dump will have Reading's exclusive features, such as an E-Coat primer and Powder Coat finish. Built for Class 4 and 5 chassis' the Marauder SL Dump Body is engineered to be an industry leader. Utilizing Reading's high quality manufacturing methods and procedures found in other Reading products the SL is built to get the job done. The body will be sold through Reading's nationwide distribution network and is great for construction, landscape and other vocational applications.
The new SL model complements the already successful Marauder Dump line, carrying many of the same features that are important to Marauder users, while eliminating some extra components which drives a price competitive product that still meets and exceeds the needs of the everyday user.
Some of the features that were passed on to the SL include: E-Coat priming, black powder coat finish, laser cut 'banjo' eyes on full depth rear corner posts, fast action dump hardware, and grease 'zerks' for easy maintenance. The SL also follows the Marauder in design with its continuous welded construction and dirt shedding top and bottom road spray rails. The body is engineered with a crossmemberless understructure and trapezoidal longsills which provides a lower center of gravity for a more stable truck when under load. This understructure design also helps to control debris build-up, corrosion, and is very easy to clean. All Reading Marauder Dump Bodies are also fitted with a standard electric-hydraulic double-acting NTEA Class 30 Hoist that is sub frame mounted.
