A demountable body is typically used by logistics companies delivering to the high street stores or manufacturers delivering own products.
The MW U-Mount is a universal straight lift de-mount system. It works by lifting the body clear of the chassis in a single operation and at the same time positioning the support legs. The lifting gear is then lowered allowing the truck chassis to be driven clear of the body.
The body is lifted either by using pneumatic lifts mounted on the chassis or by utilising the air suspension of the truck.
To ensure the body is loaded safely and securely our location guides ensure the driver correctly positions the body on the truck chassis. Depending on the application different guidance systems are provided, however the principal is the same.
To secure the body to the chassis four twist locks are used and this is the recognised industry standard.
