Coastal Metal Fab (Topsham, Maine) introduced Swap Hogg, an interchangeable roll-off body system for Class 4 to 6 chassis cab trucks.
The frame and hoist system convert a chassis cab into a multi-functional work truck, which can effortlessly switch from a worksite dumpster, to a drive on dump body or platform body. The chassis mounted sub-frame is powered by a 6” bore by 15” stroke scissor hoist, capable of a 50-degree dump angle. The frame rails consist of 6” x 2” structural tube steel, with a Warn 15K electric industrial winch handling the loading / unloading tasks. Nylatron body guides and Polyurethane covered side rollers help reduce loading friction, noise and paint wear. A four button, in cab, control pendant operates both the hoist and winch functions. The frame and interchangeable bodies are painted with Imron Elite Black and oven cured.
The universal design of the Swap Hogg frame also permits other brand’s bodies to be interchangeable. Other options available include a pintle hitch bumper with LED lighting and a universal equipment platform frame for mobile compressors, fluid tanks or salt spreaders.
Kevin Lauze, Coastal Metal Fab’s Vice -President couldn’t be more pleased with the reception he has received for the new Swap Hogg system. “Sales took right off, from the minute we communicated with our dealer network. Our dealers know the quality of our other truck equipment, our dump bodies and sand spreaders (DownEaster), so I think there was strong interest from the beginning.”
