Knapheide to Display New Products at the Work Truck Show
Knapheide will display 12 products in booth number 3739 at the 20th annual Work Tuck Show at the Indianapolis Convention Center in Indianapolis March 3-6, 2020. “The Work Truck Show is such a great event for us,” said Product Strategy Manager Haily Meyer. “It gives us the opportunity to have all of our new and updated products in one place for everyone at the show to see.” New products on display in the Knapheide booth include Knapheide Van Equipment, Combo Body, and Saw Body. In addition, the 46-inch tall and 60-inch tall Service Bodies, aluminum KUVcc, and a newly-designed Forestry Body will also be on display. Knapheide Van Equipment includes a lineup of partitions, shelving, options, and accessories to fit the needs of the majority of van users. The Combo Body is a combination of Knapheide’s popular service body and contractor platform body. The body provides optimized storage, transportation solutions and a full cargo area with drop down racks. The Saw Body was designed with the concrete cutting contractor in mind with its primary purpose being to haul concrete cutting saws. It includes specific storage areas for items such as saw blades, hoses, cords, slurry tanks, and coring and drilling equipment. The 46-inch and 60-inch tall Service Bodies are available in both steel and aluminum. These bodies add more capacity to safely and securely store cargo in compartments. The 46” tall bodies add 20% more storage over the standard 40” tall Service Bodies and the 60” tall bodies offer 55% more storage over their 40” counterpart. The Knapheide aluminum KUVcc offers the same features and specifications as our aluminum service body, but features an enclosed cargo area with increased payload and longevity through superior corrosion resistance. The newly designed Forestry Body offers increased capacity and new safety features including an integrated ladder tunnel with lockable storage on the curbside of the body.
The rear gate swings a full 270 degrees around the curbside of the body and is designed to avoid interference with the storage tunnel. Knapheide will release videos featuring these products daily during Work Truck Show hours on their Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube social media channels. Knapheide welcomes all media outlets to share and learn from these videos as well as stop by our booth to speak with our product specialists on any or all of the products being showcased in our booth.
