Reading Truck Launches Contractor Body

Reading Truck, a premier truck equipment manufacturer and distributor, has expanded its truck body lineup with the introduction of its new Contractor Body. Designed with today’s contractors in mind, the Contractor Body reflects Reading Truck’s commitment to innovation, manufacturing excellence and customer needs.

Reflecting decades of engineering expertise, Reading Truck’s new Contractor Body comes equipped with many of the features that customers expect from Reading Truck, including A60 galvannealed steel construction, e-coat primer and powder-coat finish.

Available in 10-foot and 12-foot lengths, the Contractor Body is built upon Reading’s heavy-duty platform body and includes standard features like a fork truck loadable material rack; 12-gauge hot-rolled deck plate; movable tailboard for different space configurations with 17-inch fold-down rails; and our signature toolboxes. The Contractor Body also addresses the safety of operators with enhanced LED lighting and an interchangeable tapered bulkhead available to improve visibility from the cab. Many options are also available for this body, including a top-opening Spacemaker and shovel box for long storage.
