What Is A Truck Chassis?
A truck chassis cab goes by a few names in the industry. You may hear cab chassis or half truck, but this all falls under the same umbrella. In a nutshell, it is a type of vehicle construction that you often find in medium duty truck commercial vehicles.
So what does that have to do with us? Well, instead of supplying our customers with a factory pre-assembled flatbed, cargo container, or garbage truck, the customer is given the vehicle with just chassis rails and a cab. What this does is allows for the owner to customize the vehicle how they see fit. And essentially add any equipment to fit the vehicle to their specifications. Additions like fire apparatus, ambulances, recreational vehicle conversion packages, and for our purposes garbage trucks. There is a nice flexibility when the chassis cab is sold without the rest of the vehicle that has an allure to many of our clients. We often sell this part that is manufactured by Ford, Chevy, GMC and Ram. So you can pick and choose from the model that you want.
Benefits of a Chassis Cab
When you opt for a chassis cab, you get some nice benefits. On average, the chassis cab offers better fuel economy than other models. This is due to the fact that it has a larger fuel tank. One downside of this improved fuel economy may be less horsepower. But for a commercial setting where you need to drive a lot, it helps to save money by using less fuel.
When it comes to towing and payload, you often get higher payload ratings with a chassis cab, despite being more of a stripped down version of a pickup truck. And for the most part, many who look for these cabs tend to need it for heavy up-fitting options and for hauling heavy payloads.
For upfitting options with a chassis cab, there are easy upgrades you can look into. Get great accessories, like a lift kit, to have the cab better perform. The way the manufacturers create this cab allows for simple and easy customization. So it is great to a wide range of tasks, since it can easily adapt to its surroundings. For example, if you need a dump truck, a tow truck or a flatbed truck, the classic chassis cabs can work!
