After decades of transportation experience, Tool Rig designed and patented a pickup truck toolbox focused on safety. It doesn’t occupy the truck’s valuable cargo/bed space allowing for more cargo with the tailgate safely closed without jeopardizing the driver’s view of the rear-view mirror. All gear within the toolbox is retrieved from the sides instead of employees having to climb into the bed area of the vehicle. This reduces costly slips and falls. The toolbox also protects the cab/driver from moving or shifting cargo. Each Tool Rig box is custom assembled and fabricated from 1/8-inch 5052 aluminum riveted together using all marine hardware.


H40 and H60

VMAC’s hydraulic-driven air compressors are compact, powerful, and lightweight. VMAC’s 40 and 60 CFM hydraulic rotary screw air compressors produce air on demand and don’t require large air receiver tanks, enabling operators to get jobs done faster without interruption. But what really sets them apart is the sophisticated technology. “This hydraulic air compressor monitors temperatures, pressures, and controls whether the unit can start building air. If it’s too cold the VMAC compressor will limit its use to protect the system and warm it up first. If it gets too hot it will shut off, again to protect itself,” explains Jack from Cloverdale Equipment Company.


DTS Metro

Monroe Truck Equipment’s DTS Metro is a compact service truck, sized below CDL requirements yet still provides versatility for a range of applications. Monroe designed this all-season, live floor, multi-purpose body for 19,000 GVW and higher chassis. It features a standard dump body design while incorporating a live conveyor on the left side. This allows for a front left discharge, permitting the main framework of the body to remain in a lowered position. With the floor tipped toward the left, the material is directed into the conveyor and then into the spinner to spread material.
