HiVol® Specialty Bodies

  • The HiVol® Difference

  • The PHIL HiVol Body is designed to give your operation what it needs. Sometimes, that is increased life against highly abrasive environments, sometimes our clients need to significantly increase their volumetric capacity over the standard OEM body to give them more production per hour.
  • There are countless reasons why a custom body is important to users of off-highway haul trucks. No one has an operation exactly like yours. And, we accomplish our customer-specific designs without exceeding your truck's maximum Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW).

PHIL HiVol® Bodies - Constructed with ultra-high strength, abrasion resistant steels. Our HiVol bodies are constructed of steel with a nominal Brinnell hardness of 450, but has lower points of carbon than most 450 Brinnell steel, which provide for strength and hardness without being brittle in cold weather climates.

Balanced Load - Our HiVol Bodies for lighter density materials are engineered to provide an ideal load balance of 1/3 on the front axle and 2/3 on the rear axle or as required by the truck OEM manufacturer.

Today's market demands high performance equipment to yield maximum productivity and profits. Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc. off-highway truck bodies outperform the rest to keep your operation on track.

With every PHIL truck body, you get:

Maximum Payload

PHIL truck bodies are specifically engineered to minimize body weight and maximize payload.  During design, PHIL engineers work with our clients to determine the proper body weight to payload ratio as requested by the client.

Safety is Paramount in All Designs

Each truck body is built with the lowest loading height, lowest center of gravity and best weight distribution possible, which provides excellent stability and safer operation.  When body exhaust is requested, we route the exhaust in a way that provides maximum visibility for the driver without the exhaust disrupting their view.

To achieve the best possible opening for a shovel or other loading tool, PHIL HiVol bodies tend to be wider than alternatives, thus providing a larger target for the loader operator, allowing them to place the load into the body as low as possible, further minimizing vibration felt in the drivers cab.

Unlimited Customization

"Stock design" at PHIL is an oxymoron; each design is custom engineered for each client based on their needs.  We build truck bodies for virtually any material hauled and for any make/model of off-highway trucks. No matter what your application, we either have designed or will design a truck body that makes the most of your investment dollars.

Incorporated PHIL Technology

Each PHIL HiVol Specialty Body incoporates the following technologies developed at Philippi-Hagenbuch, Inc.

  • PHIL Body Lifting System & traditional lifting system
  • Reinforced floor structure that supersedes any other floor standard available
  • Reinforced Body Pivot, providing extended pivot life
  • Rounded body side top cap structures
  • Optional - Perimeter exhaust heating that will not affect structural integrity of body
