Dump Body of the Week
This week’s dump truck of the week is a tandem Volvo tractor conversion. Warren receives many requests to convert tractors to dump trucks. Most older tractors have single frames. Therefore, Warren recommends using a frame type dump body on these tractors. However, if you do have a double frame tractor we recommend going with a frameless dump body built with AR-450 high tensile strength steel. Most of all, Warren has a dump body model to fit most any need!
Tractor To Dump Truck Conversion
So, you are wanting to convert a tractor to a dump truck. What all will be involved? Warren will need to know the CT/CA. (cab to tandem measurement or cable to center of the axle for single axle tractors.) Often times, we convert tractors with existing wet kits in to dump bodies. In some cases we are able to use the existing PTOs and pumps on the tractor to save our customers money. This often depends on what application the wet kit was used for. Usually, pumps and PTOs used for dump trailer wet kits will also work for a dump body conversion. Call Warren today to find out more on converting your used tractor to a dump truck.
