Aluminum Flatbeds

Available models include heavy duty flats(200 lb/sf load rating), extra heavy duty flats(350 lb/sf load rating), dumping, towing, and specialty flats.  In the Dumping Aluminum Flats  section see our drei-seiten-kipper (three-side-tipper) for pickups , or our Reversed-Hoist dumping flat with a 17,000 lb hoist capacity plus a 30,000 pound tow-capacity gooseneck ball factory installed . All TruckCraft flats are made  of 100% 6061 T6 alloy extrusion in a proven design that gets more strength and rigidity per pound of aluminum than even many steel flatbeds (but at just 60% of the weight).  Sizes and capacities are available for pickup trucks, up to 19,500 pound capacity one-tons.
 
All construction materials are 6061-T6 aluminum alloy extrusion with 37,000 PSI minimum tensile strength. The floor is made of  plank extrusion that is designed with a tongue-in-groove joint on each plank top, and two crossills every 5″ for rigid reinforcement that will take heavy punishment in stride.
 
The standard long sills are 4″ high x 2 1/4″ wide structural aluminum channel, with optional 6″ or 7″ longsills available for hoist, or extra heavy duty applications.
 
Rub rails are a custom shape providing 5 1/2″ side height with extruded ribs for added strength and improved appearance. The rub rails, as well as the front and back rails, have stake pockets cut into the tops. Bed corners are mitered for safety and improved appearance.
 
Body comes complete with flush mounting 2 1/2″ grommet style LED clearance and marker lights, with wiring harness.
 
RATING: TC 500 is rated for 200 lbs/SF evenly distributed load. e.g., 96″W X 110″L= 73SF = 14,600lbs rated load.

TC-501 HERCULES EXTRA-HEAVY DUTY ALUMINUM FLATBED SPECIFICATION

The big brother to TruckCraft’s proven-design TC-500 heavy-duty flat is the TC-501 HERCULES, popular with our Canadian customers. The load rating of Hercules is 350lbs/sq ft level load. The floor planks are  6061 T6 with 3/16″ thick tops, crossills on 5″ centers, and longsills are 7″ H-beams.

TC-502 METRO SPECIFICATION

The new TruckCraft Metro will convert your single rear wheel pickup to a handy, aluminum dropside flat with over 56 sq ft of enclosed deck space that can be accessed cleanly by a forklift from any side. A typical 8 ft pickup box has around 32 sq ft of flat deck that can only be accessed from the rear, over the tailgate. The METRO’s extruded 6061 T6 alloy dropsides and tailgate are instantly latched and unlatched with rugged, load-rated latching hardware that allows a completely open access with no corner posts.
 
Need a dump truck? The Metro can easily be converted to a sharp, three-way dump with the optional double acting hoist kit. That’s right – switch to dump left, right or rear in a matter of seconds by re-positioning four control knobs.
 
Ask for the TruckCraft METRO when you order your next truck, or when you need more from your existing truck.

TC-504 CONTRACTOR EDGE

The new TruckCraft Contractor EDGE incorporates many features into one body to provide a tool to accomplish a variety of job descriptions. The foundation of the CONTRACTOR EDGE is TruckCraft’s  T6 Alloy aluminum platform, rated at 200 lbs/sf level-load, a proven staple for TruckCraft.  At the front of the deck are a welded-on cabguard and above-body, lockable storage compartments. At the rear of the deck, 18″ high extruded drop-side sections enclose the flat area, and can fold down vertically to allow complete access to the load/unload area, or they can fold down to a horizontal position to provide a work surface. The overhead superstructure is aluminum tubing and rated to carry up to 750 lbs of long tools, forms, materials, etc.

TruckCraft offers an all-aluminum heavy duty tow body that allows you to load up to 200 lbs/sq ft on the deck, but still provides lasting great looks and more payload through the use of 6061 T6 alloy extrusion in an ultra-efficient design. LYNX-PLUS provides the same features as LYNX, but PLUS comes with a 30,000# capacity tow ball installed at our factory. Just set it on your truck frame and bolt it down – saves loads of time at installation.
