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