Stellar Mechanic Truck

Stellar Introduces the TMAX 1-13

Written by Kate Wade on . Posted in .

Stellar – a 100% employee-owned and -operated manufacturer of high-quality mechanic trucks and cranes, tire service trucks, hooklifts, trailers, and service truck and van accessories – has launched the latest body in its TMAX Aluminum Mechanic Truck Series: the TMAX 1-13. The new 13-foot aluminum body offers additional compartment storage and is intended for a 108-inch cab-to-axle chassis with 22,000 to 22,900 pounds GVWR, such as the Ford F-600 or Chevrolet 6500.

Similar to other TMAX 1 models, the TMAX 1-13 Aluminum Mechanic Truck is ideal for cranes up to 53,100 foot-pounds, like the Stellar 86 Series Telescopic Service Crane. The TMAX Series features the crane-carrying reliability of the Stellar Torq-Isolator torsion box understructure and crane compartment. This feature isolates the crane’s lifting forces into the stabilizers and chassis frame, rather than into the storage compartment, avoiding unnecessary twists to the truck’s body and doors.

TMAX Aluminum Mechanic Truck bodies feature aluminum extrusion compartment tops with two built-in accessory mounting rails. These mounting rails eliminate the need to drill holes in the compartment tops, allowing for easier and faster mounting and relocating of accessories.
