Reading CSV57 and CSV75 aluminum service bodies are over 50 percent lighter than comparable steel bodies, according to the company. The units feature welded design construction and aluminum alloy and extrusions throughout, including the load space floor. It is 210 pounds lighter than previous generations, allowing for greater payload capacity, improved fuel efficiency and less wear and tear on the chassis, Reading says. The service bodies also have a seamless wheelhouse panel, shuttle panel pass through, flush mount floor to threshold channel, and the company’s patented hidden hinge technology with recessed and concealed hardware, and LED lighting.
