AWI of Phoenix provided the upfit of this Model 866 Rodder which has some pretty thoughtful features, first and foremost is the chain driven Yoke, It is the most balanced and concentric yoke available. When you look in the housing which has dual side access doors that lock you will note that for a truck mounted application they just didn’t set it on a flatbed……it is open to the ground. This allows moisture and stuff to go to ground instead of corroding a bed. They also provide a deck all the way around with non slip tape and fold out steps to access the decks. Furthermore all of the yoke access doors feature a stop switch when opened, the yoke will not rotate when they are open. The operators deck has a guard rail and super easy big controls which are wired to NEMA codes. For workman safety the back of the one piece yoke enclosure features an arrow board and up top a beacon. The 866 comes standard with 1200′ of .375 rod, dual lever hydraulic controls, three 36″ lockable toolboxes, 25′ hose guide, two assembly wrenches, wheel chock pockets and this one it features the optional cone holder
