For unloading flexibility, the Hercules Manufacturing bodies have a curbside door, sliding-swing combination rear door, and large platform Leyman Hide-A-Way liftgate. The dairy has spec’d a sliding interior strip curtain that is adjustable. This reduces the space needed to be refrigerated as the load diminishes during the delivery route.

Maola Milk and Ice Cream is equipping all new trucks with Safety Vision back-up cameras systems. The view from the video camera mounted on the top rear center of the body is shown on an in-cab monitor. Return to article | Return to photo galleries
At the end of each day’s run, drivers load their trucks for the next day’s delivery. Orders are pulled for them and stored in a large cooler behind the loading area.
