Thomas Heatherwick: Building the Seed Cathedral

A future more beautiful? Architect Thomas Heatherwick shows five recent projects featuring ingenious bio-inspired designs. Some are remakes of the ordinary: a bus, a bridge, a power station ... And one is an extraordinary pavilion, the Seed Cathedral, a celebration of growth and light.

2-3 Yard Rugby Steel Dump On F350 Chassis Frog Eyes

Okay, we're having a bit of fun with the title, but if you look at the first picture, maybe you'll see what we're talking about! Those amber lights at the top of the dump body do look a lot like frog eyes.

Here is a 2-3 yard capacity Rugby Steel Dump Body with Fold-Down Sides so it can be off loaded from the side, or used as a flatbed from time to time and loaded with a forklift. It has two underbed boxes and side boards and is painted white to match the truck. And, of course it has those custom mounted amber "frog eyes" to help people see a truck at work on the side of the road.

All this mounted on a Ford F350 chassis with 13,500 lb. GVWR. Nice setup. Let us build one for you! Call us at 800-433-9452 and visit our website at http://www.htbi.net/.


A Warehouse On Wheels By Harbor Truck Bodies

Here's a body that was nearing completion when the photos were taken. We need to call this a Warehouse On Wheels considering how much this body can carry, but the real name is a Harbor 11' TradeMaster Service Body. It has some options. This unit has 56" compartments except the front compartments are 60" tall. The front compartments are set up for welder bottles with bottle brackets and rings and vented doors. Notice that the horizontal compartment over the wheel wells is now a vertical compartment and has much more space than usual. This unit also sports an 19" Floor Extension for a work platform to get some quick jobs done in the field. All this was mounted on a Ford Super Duty 450/550 chassis.

We are happy to help you with the body that suits your needs. Give us a call at 800-433-9452 and visit our website at http://www.htbi.net/.


2012 Ford F-650 with 6.8-liter V-10 Gas Engine

From the 2011 NTEA Work Truck Show, PickupTrucks.com's Mike Levine takes a look at the 2012 Ford F-650 with the new 6.8-liter V-10 gas engine and a six-speed automatic transmission.


The Low Pro Service Body Looks Great And Cargo Bed Enclosure Is Sweet Option

The low pro 8' Harbor Service Body is a very attractive choice. In this case, it is even more functional with a 3-piece Cargo Bed Enclosure with a sliding top that opens up two thirds of the bed area for access. Take it one very comfortable step further and add a Bedslide, so all you need do then is roll it out. Never crawl in the back ever again!
