Masterack SmartSpace Cargo Management System Introduced at the 2013 Work Truck Show


SmartSpace - A Revolutionary Change in Cargo Storage
SmartSpace Cargo Management System was developed from the ground up, with the support of Masterack’s largest fleet, OEM, and distributor customers. The highly configurable storage system features stackable shelf units, designed for use in the new high-cube cargo vans coming to market within the next 18 months, which include the Ford Transit and Ram ProMaster, as well as smaller fleet vehicles such as the Ford Transit Connect and Nissan NV200.


The new system is engineered with lightweight materials which provide fuel efficiency over traditional steel cargo management systems. SmartSpace is modular, giving users the ability to easily and quickly customize the system for different trades and needs, even after delivery of the vehicle. 





Additionally, the system satisfies Masterack’s installation partners’ desire to reduce installation time for the system. “Our customers asked for a cargo management system that would save them time, so we designed a shelving module that can be installed at 90 or 180 degrees for rear and side door access,” said Jenn Voelker, Marketing Manager. “We focused on the details, down to new drawer latches which secure drawers individually and provide quiet, rattle-free storage.”

For all your Masterack needs, give Harbor Truck Bodies a call at 800-433-9452.

Pulltarps® From Harbor Truck Bodies



 
Harbor Truck Bodies sells the original Pulltarps® Truck Tarps

American made Semi-Automatic Pulltarp® Truck Tarp Systems are the original spring return tarping system. These tarp systems operate by manually pulling the tarp out over the load with a pull rope. The tarp is then rolled back into the housing using spring tension within the roller mechanism. Semi-Automatic Pulltarp® Systems are fully upgradeable to electric drive, manual arms, or automatic arms. These truck tarp systems are great for all applications and are the most economical solution to your tarping needs! And tarping your empty trucks can save fuel, that's important for a single truck or a truck fleet. We all benefit with better fuel economy from tarping commercial trucks.
- See more at: http://pulltarps.com/pull-tarp-spring-loaded-truck-tarp-system.htm#sthash.oFsdPGWA.dpuf

We also offer a full line of Manual Arm Systems, Automatic Arm Systems, and Front to Back Cable Systems. So no matter what type of truck or trailer you have and no matter what type of material you haul, Pulltarps has a truck tarp system for you. - See more at: http://pulltarps.com/#sthash.qCzofC1F.dpuf

Manual Arms use the same Pulltarps® semi-automatic roller mechanism to retract the tarp back into the housing. The arms deploy manually by pulling the tarp over the load using the pull rope. Manual arms are great for applications up to 22’. Tarping peaked loads is made easy because the arms lift the tarp up and over the load. - See more at: http://pulltarps.com/manualarmtrucktarpsystems.htm#sthash.ahMhMiyU.dpuf

Automatic Arms have an electric motor to retract the tarp back into  the housing. The arms automatically deploy the tarp using spring tension within the arm pivot. This entire process is done by simply turning a switch. Automatic Arms are great for any application up to 40'. Tarping peaked loads is made easy because the arms lift the tarp up and over the load. - See more at: http://pulltarps.com/automaticarmtrucktarpsystems.htm#sthash.9VkFqBOt.dpuf

All Automatic Arm sets come standard with Pulltarps Double Wrap Teardrop Technology. A process where the Hem Tube slides into the Universal Teardrop Pullbar and the tarp wraps around the bar twice in order to eliminate bunching and the stress on the stitching. The Urethane Bumpers are then fastened to the pullbar. This keeps the tarp centered and reduces noise. - See more at: http://pulltarps.com/automaticarmtrucktarpsystems.htm#sthash.9VkFqBOt.dpuf

Lift The Heavy Loads With a Harbor Cranemaster and a Venturo Crane




A CraneMaster body begins as a standardized Harbor TradeMaster Service Body. This Harbor 11' CraneMaster body is mounted on a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty 4500/5500 Dually. The crane is a Venturo ET18KX.The right rear compartment includes special reinforcing for the mounting of the 18,000 ft. lbs. crane with 4,500 lb. lifting capacity. 

The crane has electric functions for the winch, elevation, rotation and extension. We typically add a leaf to the spring on the crane side to help keep the body level after the installation of a crane.  Notice the crane rest for cradling the boom. We can also install outriggers for stability, particularly on larger cranes mounted on higher bodies. 

This unit also has an optional 18" bumper extension with tool box compartments.
