What we (Tate’s & Sun Country Truck) put together for a customer in Hawaii is the ultimate self contained construction truck. This truck must be able to do everything once it gets to its remote destinations and must be configurable prior to leaving the shop for the job at hand.
It all starts with a F550 4×4 165″ Regular cab chassis equipped with the super reliable all Ford 6.7L V8 diesel, 6-speed automatic w/ PTO port, Low deflection package, 19,500 GVWR, power windows/locks/mirrors and door pockets, cruise control, Sync Hands free phone and more.
The body must be able to withstand the very corrosive environment of Hawaii so we went with the Stahl 11′ 60″ tall A60 Galveneel constructed body which is e-coated and powder coated inside and out. You have got to see this body to really appreciate the thought Stahl engineers put into it. The rest is all custom work by Sun country Truck.
Prior to mounting the body what you can’t see is the Van-Air PTO driven compressor mounted next to the transmission.
At the back they first applied the poly-urea coating prior to mounting the Aluminum Tommy Gate. Note the all custom bumper and vise stand. The yellow box is 110v power from the Bobcat welder which will find a home at on top of the passenger side rear compartment. The customer requested the lighting to be mounted low so he can hang water coolers and other equipment.
In the pictures above you can see components of the air compressor system. The compressor cooling cradle is all custom by Sun Country which also houses the diesel transfer tanks hose real keeping it out of the weather all components are coated with poly-urea along with the load space and tops of the body. The transfer tank is mounted below the cradle and the other tank is for water for the saw cut machine. The diesel transfer nozzle is hung in the passenger side front compartment and is well ventilated. Sorry didn’t get pics of that.
This is the Bobcat welder
Check out this awesome hitch system that is undercoated.
Bottom line is we can build one of these for you today customized to your needs. We have the tools, experience and contacts to develop the perfect truck for your job.
