Today’s Service Trucks Offer New, Improved Features

Versatility is the name of the game in many aspects of today’s tire business, including service trucks. Currently, tire service truck suppliers provide many options. Durability is among the most important features built into every truck – this not only helps offset fuel costs, but prevents the need to purchase a new service truck before it’s absolutely necessary.

No matter what type or size service truck you buy, double-check to see if it’s made of lightweight aluminum. Not only is an aluminum body rust resistant, its lighter weight equals more miles to the gallon, longer drive train life and longer tire life. It all adds up to money in your pocket – all the more reason to shop carefully.

Look around and you’ll find extruded aluminum plank floors for greater strength and longevity; extruded aluminum body liners; stainless steel hinges with stainless steel automatic-style slam latches; innovative work lights that really work; and direct hydraulic-driven air compressor systems.

You’ll also find unique cranes and compressors on a common base, freeing up valuable tool storage space and eliminating drive shafts and U-joints. Rotation for a 9,000-pound hydraulic knuckle boom crane is accomplished through a turntable bearing. This type of crane can also be operated by remote control.

Beyond the purchase of any tire service truck, you can expect the support of a trained account management team and/or a certified specialist to lend a hand. These people will provide you with such things as proper operation and a lifecycle cost analysis to help you determine proper replacement cycles for vehicles in your fleet.

Even though some might think a new tire service truck is pretty much the same as the last service truck they bought, nothing could be further from the truth.

Even small tire service vehicles for metro, road and light fleet service applications have been appropriately equipped for the times and types of tires out there. You will find tire service trucks in this category that come with several types of compressors – from hydraulic to gas-powered – with room to carry 10 11R24.5 truck tires in the load bed.

You can also rely on tire service truck builders to adhere to the highest standards throughout the design, manufacturing and assembly stages. Your new service truck will be thoroughly tested before it is shipped to you, and it’s tough to put a dollar value on that.
