HiVol® Hot Slag Specialty Bodies

  • Legendary Toughness Starts with the Right Design - PHIL Slag Bodies have two distinctive components which include the skeleton structure and the load containing envelope, which the hot slag comes in direct contact with.
  • Designed to combat Differential Expansion & Contraction - Hot slag will tear most bodies apart because they are not designed to expand or contract; their welds pop, the plates warp and then thngs start to get ugly.  Not with the PHIL Hot Slag Body; it's designed for the Hot Slag environment.
  • Built for Easy Maintenance - When internal load containing envelope is compromised, individual plates can be changed out easily and const effectively.
  • Optional Tailgate for Containment - It's not wise to haul around molten steel that can fall out the back of the truck; cap it off with an authentic PHIL Autogate(R) Tailgate designed for containing hot slag.

PHIL HiVol Hot Slag Bodies are constructed to be durable, long-lasting and high performing. To balance the need for tough, strong materials with light-weight, vehicle wear-reducing features, the HiVol design team combines innovative solutions with available technology, creating an unbeatably tough product.

PHIL HiVol® Bodies - Constructed with ultra-high strenth, abrasion resistant steels. Our HiVol bodies are constructed of steel with a nominal Brinell 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
