Understanding Industrial Equipment and Our Manufacturing Legacy

I'm Sandra Adams, a blogger and enthusiast of many eclectic targets, including pottery and industrial equipment and supplies. I've traced my family tree as far back as I can go and there is not one moment where my family hasn't been involved in manufacturing. My dad worked as a mechanic repairing industrial machinery and if it wasn't for me, he wouldn't have anyone to pass down his knowledge to. I've always wanted to know what my dad was up to, so I'd ask him what he did everyday. I've always been really curious and this has lead me to develop a really strong understanding of industrial equipment. My love for industrial equipment hasn't waned and now I feel like sharing this knowledge with others. I've created this blog for this exact purpose.

Utility Truck Bodies: How To Choose The Right One For Your Needs


Do you own a truck and need a way to haul cargo? If so, consider getting a utility truck body. Utility truck bodies are a great way to add extra storage space to your truck and make it easier to transport your belongings. 

There are many different types of utility truck bodies available, so it's important to choose one that's right for your needs. Here are a few factors to consider when selecting a utility truck body:

  • The type of cargo you'll be hauling: The first thing you need to consider is the type of cargo you'll be carrying. If you're hauling heavy loads, you'll need a body made from durable materials. If you're moving fragile items, you'll need a body designed to protect them.
  • The amount of cargo space you need: Another essential factor to consider is how much cargo space you need. You can get away with a smaller body if you only need to haul a few small items. But you'll need a larger body to transport a lot of cargo.
  • Features that are important to you: Some utility truck bodies come with a variety of features, such as: 
    • Lockable compartments
    • Tie-down points
    • Ramps
    • Ladders
    • Work surfaces

Think about which features matter most to you and choose a body with them.

  • Your budget: Utility truck bodies can cost between a few hundred and several thousand dollars. Analyzing your budget before shopping is essential so you spend your money wisely.
  • Your truck's make and model: When choosing a utility truck body, it's important to consider your truck's make and model. Some bodies are only compatible with particular trucks.
  • The climate you live in: If you live in a hot climate, you'll want to choose a body made from materials that won't warp or fade in the sun. If you live in a location prone to cold temperatures, you'll want to choose an insulated body to protect your cargo from the cold.

Once you weigh these factors, you can choose the right utility truck body for your needs.

Some additional tips for choosing a utility truck body include the following:

  • Do your research: Review online reviews and talk to other truck owners for recommendations.
  • Visit a few different dealerships and compare prices: Don't hesitate to negotiate. Many dealerships are willing to work with you on price.

By following these tips, you can choose the right utility truck body for your needs and budget.
