#1150 - Compact Hi-Sides™
This option is a ruggedly
designed and engineered hardware kit to increase the volume
carrying capacity of the compact-sized Dump-Pro® from its original 1+ cubic
yards to 3 to 3.5 cubic yards. Hi-Sides comes only as a kit
(even if Dump-Pro is purchased assembled). The complete hardware system is added to
the user-supplied and finished 3/4" plywood sides of the user's
choosing*. The system is designed to "float" and automatically adjust
itself to large variations in ambient temperature, but still be rugged
and strong; not a small engineering feat, since the non rusting poly
dump body it rests upon changes size with temperature. No "floppy
sides" with this option!!
The clips holding the
plywood also act as bungee attachments for the optional tarp system.
Below shows the
powder-coated steel parts and hardware supplied. The major parts are
3@ plastic dump body lip reinforcing tubes (2@ long, 1@ short), 8 @
plywood and bungee clips, 2@ plywood front corner braces, 5@
additional plywood mounting brackets, 1@ top plywood
brace, system hardware and a complete, well-documented manual.
Below is a close-up of
what 1 plywood side clip system looks like before it is assembled to the dump body
lip and reinforcing tube. It is VERY rugged and results in stiff
and rigid side panels:
Hi-Sides can be retrofitted
to an existing Dump-Pro or ordered with a new Dump-Pro.
Weight of Hi-Sides
- is a total of the metal and plasticwork as well as the plywood
chosen by the end-user. The metalwork and plasticwork adds 42.5
lbs. If, for example, 3/4"
7-ply marine ply is used, it will add approximately 70.1 lbs for a
total weight of 113.6 lbs for Hi-Sides.
plywood provided. This is because you can then buy plywood and
make sides that specifically fits your budget and needs. For
instance, you can locally buy either very low cost unfinished plywood
or buy the very best marine plywood available and professionally
finish with your business logo and information painted on the sides
(or anything else in-between) !!
