A Little Change Can Offer A Big Difference




This is a little twist on a combo body from Harbor Truck Bodies in Brea, CA. Harbor calls this the ComboMaster Body and the twists are these:

This unit has a horizontal series on the curbside and vertical series on the streetside. It is very unusual to see a horizontal series on a combo body--matter of fact, this is the first I have seen in all the years I have been around bodies. Horizontal series means that the horizontal compartment extends beyond the normal place just over the wheel well and usually it extends to the end of the body to the rear and then instead of having a vertical door, there is a small square door and compartment.

In the case of the combo body, there is no rear vertical compartment, so in this case the horizontal compartment is extended through the second vertical compartment to the front and the smaller square compartment below. Very interesting mix on compartments. This style allows for longer tools and other objects to be stored in the much longer horizontal compartment.

The other twist which has become more common as time moves forward is the fold-down gates and then the spray-on liner has become very popular too. This particular body also has the Master Lock System, Stainless Steel Open Top Lids and a Forklift Loadable Rack which is bolted, not welded on and has no posts at the rear allowing full use of the work area which makes the combo such a popular unit.

Check out all the offerings at www.htbi.net or call Harbor at 800-433-9452.

A-OK - All One Key System Makes Life Simpler



Harbor Truck Bodies announces a wonderful option for our service body and tool box products: The A-OK Lock System, or the All One Key Lock System. This is a new lock cylinder of high quality components manufactured by Bolt Locks, part of Strattec. These locks are also available in padlock form and the video below shows how those operate. The locks shown above operate in the same way. Once the ignition key is inserted and twisted, the lock remembers only that key and then you can use your ignition key for all the locks on the service/utility body. Think how great it will be to only need to use that one key for your truck and all the doors on the service body! No more fumbling for the right keys.

Call Harbor at 800-433-9452 for more information on this exciting option--the A-OK Lock System.

Custom Service Body Adds Many Features and Space





This is a custom SuperStructure 9' Service Body manufactured by Harbor Truck Bodies, of Brea, CA for their customer Mono County Search and Rescue. This is a great looking, and very functional body with room for lots of things.

This body has horizontal compartments on both sides, where the horizontal compartment normally over the wheels only is extended to the end of the body to allow the carrying of longer tools and items that would not normally fit in any of the service body compartments. The good news about that is that it is typically a "no charge" option. Those huge upper compartments can carry some really large items by removing the shelf. Then there are those awesome light to light up the whole area on all three sides of the body. And, last, there is the whole lockable area in the rear which will take care of what won't fit in the compartments. All that mounted on a Ford Crew Cab F450, makes for a awesome package.

Harbor Truck Bodies would love to build your next body! Give them a call at 800-433-9452 and visit the website at http://www.htbi.net/.

Set Your Own Standard



Ordering up and well-equipped black truck chassis like this F450 Ford with the Alcoa Wheels is an excellent choice to match with the Harbor Contractor Body painted black instead of the more common white. Or, another way to go is a bit of contrast like the second photo. Set your own standard! Try blue, green, purple, yellow, brown, or any other color. Get noticed!

CSI Unit by Harbor Truck

 


 



 


 

Here is a great C.S.I. unit built to spec by Harbor Truck Bodies of Brea, CA and delivered through Ken Grody Ford.

What makes this body interesting is the rear platform extension with the unique fold down, lockable step and rather than have little doors outside, this platform has a full-length lid that opens making that storage space so useful and more effective. On the inside is special LED lighting including in the compartment areas. Notice the sliding mesh screens on the inside which are lockable and keep things where they need to be. Of course, this is built in full stand-up height.

Kimberly Bellamy of Harbor Truck Bodies put this unit together. Give her a call at 800-433-9452 and she would be happy to spec one for your specific needs. Visit Harbor's website at www.htbi.net.
