Enoven Steel Dump Bodies

 


The steel dump is useful for carrying and dumping heavy cargo and it takes a good deal of abuse from materials such as rocks, gravel, and dirt. This is also becoming more popular in aluminum to save weight and fuel, plus avoid the potential problem of corrosion. The flatbed or stakebed dump can be very helpful for those who need a dump occasionally. The landscape dump body is a favorite with landscapers and generally is a flatbed with solid wood or steel sides and a swing-away gate system at the rear. It is not meant for heavy items generally, but clippings, brush, and similar materials. You can also get a dump body for a pickup truck, as either an insert or utilizing the truck bed as a dump.

Some of what Enoven offers:

  • Rugby, Galion, Williamsen, HD Tommie Dump
  • 8’ up to 18’, 2cuyd up to 22cuyd capacity
  • Fully hydraulic or electric over hydraulic hoists
  • 10ga Mild Steel up to 5/8” Hardox 450 construction
  • Custom builds are our specialty

Illuminated LED Guides for Snow Plows and Truck Bumpers - Product Overview


Our Illuminated LED Guides have a patented light-up design that makes it easier to see your equipment in low visibility situations. 

This is great if you’re plowing snow in the middle of a storm and need to maintain precise control of your plow, or in general, if you regularly drive in bad weather and want to know exactly where your bumper ends.

The guides also give your truck a unique, highly visible look. That means you’ll stand out from other contractors on the road and be more likely to draw the eye of potential customers. 

Speaking of visibility- don’t worry about the guides straining your eyes while you’re driving. They are less bright on the driver-facing side so they don’t become a distraction while you’re on the road.

The Ability To Dump A Load Rather Than Unload A Load Can Be So Helpful

 




Enoven Truck Body makes a wide variety of dump trucks from dedicated dump bodies like our steel dump to the ever-popular landscape dump body to the flatbed dump truck. The flatbed dump can have no sides or short gates or as in the landscape dumping flatbed, tall sides with swing-away rear gates and more. Yet the flatbed dump is one of the most versatile of truck bodies that can be used for a lot of different types of businesses. Some need to dump loads often, and others not so much, and either way, the flatbed dump offers great value because of its ability to get a load off quickly.

10 ways to improve diesel efficiency

Ten lessons learned during NACFE’s 2017 Run on Less event 
prove what fleets can do to improve its miles per gallon.

Diesel Fuel Station Vitpho Dreamstime

In all of the excitement about developments in electric trucks, I want to make sure we don’t lose sight of the necessary work of improving the efficiency of diesel-powered vehicles. They will make up the majority of the new truck production for a while.

As many of you may recall, in 2017 during NACFE’s first Run on Less, seven drivers achieved an average 10 MPG over a three-week period. Remember that was the average of all seven trucks over the 17 days (99 truck-days) with four truck-days reaching between 12.5 and 13.0 MPG.

Since that event, we are hearing more fleets and drivers talk about striving to reach 10 MPG consistently. As we analyzed the data from the Run we came up with what we called 10 Actions to Achieve 10+ MPG.

Whenever I am asked about what one thing can make a difference in improving MPG, I always refer to our 10 Actions graphic. The truth is there is no one thing that will get a fleet to 10 MPG. Each fleet has different operating conditions, duty cycles and challenges. And each fleet is at a different point on its path to better MPG.

It’s been awhile since I talked about the 10 Actions, so I hope you won't mind if I do so now. I figure a little refresher is always a good thing.

In no particular order, here are the 10 lessons we learned about improving MPG from Run on Less 2017.

  • Use downsped powertrains and AMTs: AMTs enable downspeeding but be aware that the most aggressive downspeeding is best suited for applications with high average speeds and a low amount of starts and stops. 
  • Educate and incent drivers: The driver is one of the key elements to success in achieving high MPG. Hire drivers that are already committed to driving in a fuel-efficient manner or train existing drivers about how to save fuel. Enlist the aid of drivers who are getting excellent MPG to share their tips and secrets with other drivers and to talk about why good MPG matters. 
  • Buy all available tractor aerodynamics: Manufacturers have worked hard to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of their base models but adding all available sleeper tractor aerodynamic devices has proven to have a high ROI in line-haul applications. 
  • Adopt appropriate trailer aerodynamics: Look at trailer aerodynamics in three key areas — side, rear and front. Invest in those that are most appropriate depending on the characteristics of your duty cycles. 
  • Optimize cruise control and vehicle speed: Engine parameter settings are your friends. Use them wisely to optimize for fuel efficiency. And remember to review them periodically or as your operation changes. Tweak as needed. 
  • Keep equipment well maintained: Solid maintenance practices ensure vehicles run as intended and play a role in improving fuel efficiency. 
  • Implement the right axle configuration: Use the correct axle specification for the job depending on payload, speed, maneuverability and fleet practices related to tire management. 
  • Embrace low rolling resistance tires: Low rolling resistance tires are one key element to achieving high MPG but be sure to make tire selection based on application and region. 
  • Provide tools to reduce idle time: The truck should be shut off whenever possible, but drivers need to be comfortable and have access to creature comforts as well. Technology and engine parameters can help you achieve both goals. 
  • Build a culture of methodically choosing technologies: Make sure you have a process in place to vet technologies that can increase fuel economy. It is imperative that you understand the performance they can achieve and their payback or ROI. 
These 10 actions taken together or separately can help you boost the MPG of your existing diesel-powered vehicles — and all of these, except for number 1, will be just as important on electric trucks. Together, they will help increase the range of electric trucks by 30% or 40%.

Curt BetterWeigh™ Mobile Towing Scale Smartphone Ready


This video is about the BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale – a Bluetooth-enabled, smartphone-compatible device that plugs into any OBD-II port and weighs the vehicle, trailer, cargo, tongue weight, pin weight, weight distribution and trailer brake gain.

Equipped with TowSense™ technology, BetterWeigh™ provides real-time, live measurements to take the guesswork out of towing and hauling. With it, you can know exactly how much weight you’re towing, and whether it’s safe to tow with your vehicle.

It has virtually no installation requirements. BetterWeigh™ simply plugs into the OBD-II vehicle diagnostic port below the steering wheel, wirelessly links with your smartphone and comes with a free, downloadable app.

Unlike physical towing scales and tongue weight scales, BetterWeigh™ gives you a digital readout, sent right to your smartphone -- no more walking to the back of the vehicle to check the weight.

BetterWeigh™ also makes brake controller setup fast, easy and accurate by calculating the exact trailer brake gain needed for your particular load size.

The CURT BetterWeigh™ mobile towing scale is compatible with Apple iOS and Android OS. The downloadable app is intuitive, easy to use and completely free.

BetterWeigh™ Features & Benefits

ECCO TAILORS SAFETY SOLUTIONS FOR PUBLIC WORKS

CUSTOMIZED WARNING AND LIGHTING DEVICES FOR DIVERSE APPLICATIONS

ECCO Tailors Safety Solutions for Public Works

Whether patching up a road, clearing brush or building a playground, there is never a dull moment in the Public Works department. Each job requires a specialized set of tools and often demands the use of different vehicles or heavy equipment to accomplish the task at hand. Fortunately, ECCO’s diverse product line meets the many needs of Public Works so crews can operate safely while protecting the citizens they serve.
Choose from a vast array of warning and white lighting products to enhance visibility on site and on the road. Beacons and lightbars are must-haves for work trucks and other vehicles that primarily operate in the roadway and make frequent stops. Directional lights complement that visual warning capability and worklights provide useful illumination on low-light worksites.
Reversing safety equipment is also essential, especially when operating in high-traffic areas and neighborhoods. Back-up alarms are more advanced now and they can adjust their tone based on ambient noise. Multi-frequency alarms reduce noise pollution and may be an appropriate solution in residential communities. Supplement the alarm with a camera system so operators can see potential hazards and maneuver in tight spaces.
Learn about these and many other devices that are designed to work hard and keep people safe with ECCO's Public Works Solutions Guide. ECCO has you covered with a no-hassle warranty and unparalleled customer service. With reduced lead times, easy-to-install components and a helpful technical service team, your crews will be ready to roll out for another shift in no time.
