There are many options available for the Flatbed and Stakebed such as a liftgate to help get heavy items on and off the bed, under bed tool boxes, HD trailer hitch and wiring, tapered headboard, steel overlay on floor for added strength and longevity (smooth or diamond plate), cranes, tool boxes on top of the bed, HD material rack and many more.
Some samples of what we can do at Enoven:

Tire Maintenance: It’s Not Just Checking Tire Pressure


This truck demonstrates uneven treads on dual tires. Photo by Les Smart.


You have built a $3 to $30 million business over one or more generations, and you are making an appropriate profit most years. Do you think about liability? I bet you do, but do you relate that to tire failures and more specifically to catastrophic tire failures? What happens to your business if a worn, damaged tire fails at speed — it doesn’t even have to be high speed — and your driver loses control of your fleet vehicle and it plows into another vehicle?

If one or more of the occupants is a young to middle-aged passenger, especially a working mother or father, your liability skyrockets. I like to call this the $5 million accident. You don’t want to lose your business in the event of one of these failures just because you were lax in making sure that your tires were in good condition. Let’s see what you can do to avoid this type of situation where your tires are concerned.

VMAC launches new interactive vehicle application list

 
 VMAC announced the launch of a new interactive vehicle application list for dealers and customers on VMACAIR.com.


This latest list features several improvements over the previous application list, including the integration of a searchable application database. Users can now search and filter by VMAC system, vehicle model year, chassis, engine, and manufacturer to find the available vehicle integrated air compressors, multi-power systems, and Throttle Commander controls.


“VMAC is committed to being the responsive leader in mobile compressed air innovation. This spirit of innovation has resulted in the development of new online tools that help create an exceptional user experience from the start,” said Mike Pettigrew, VMAC marketing manager. “The search and filter functions on the vehicle application list enhance the online experience for our dealers and customers, allowing them to promptly find the compatible VMAC systems for their vehicle.”

In addition to the search and filter functions on the new VMAC application database, the application list also includes drop-down fields and the ability to sort results by model year, make, engine, system type, chassis, VMAC part number, max CFM and max psi. Further features include easy-to-access links to applicable system manuals and tech bulletins. VMAC dealers will find that once logged into the VMAC website, the application list will also show estimated install times for each system.

The VMAC application list has been designed to be responsive, which means it can automatically resize itself for proper viewing on mobile devices, including phones and tablets. Those who prefer to review the list on paper will be pleased to know it has been formatted to be printable with the push of a button.

“With this new interactive vehicle application list, our customers and dealers will be able to access the most accurate and current information within a matter of seconds,” Pettigrew explained. “This new tool is just the start of VMAC’s commitment to innovation online, which will continue to ensure our dealers and customers have the best online experience in the industry.”
