Maintainer expands removable compartment options


Maintainer Corporation of Iowa Inc. (Sheldon, Iowa) continues to enhance its line of Removable Compartments for Maintainer service bodies. 

“We first introduced our removable compartments in 2017,” said Tom Wibben, Director of Sales & Service for Maintainer. “Based on feedback from customers using the product in the field, we now provide a variety of options plus a unique locking mechanism.”

Maintainer’s patent-pending design was created particularly for operations that run 24/7 or for operators that work several days on, several days off. Many use the removeable compartment for a technician’s personal tools. In under five minutes, one technician’s compartment can be exchanged with another technician’s box. Plus, with heavy duty casters underneath, a removed compartment is still mobile and functional in the garage if needed.

“The ability to swap compartments means fleet managers and buyers now can save money on chassis purchases,” explained Wibben. “Plus, you can keep your service truck working instead of sitting idle until the technician comes back to work.”

Removable compartments can be placed crane side, opposite side or both. Above-deck or full-side compartment options are available. The compartments have four convenient lifting points for removal with the crane, or you can select optional forklift pockets. A warning indicator in the cab will alert the user if the compartment is not securely in place.

The Removable Compartments can be wired for power, so compartment lighting will function. Other popular service body options like DuaLock aluminum drawer sets and Maintainer’s patented Pressurized Storage System (PSS) are also available in Removable Compartments.
