Public Utilities Appraise Medium and Heavy Duty Trucks and Equipment 670129

Many troublesome areas exist in the public utility industry with regard to trucks bodies and equipment. The problems presented are a result of a survey conducted by the author; they include: inadequate space for mounting PTO's on Allison MT-40 transmissions; gearshift linkage trouble; poor accessibility to engine components, battery, radiator, and so forth; lack of space on dual wheel units for tire chains; and inadequate capacity gas tanks; to name a few. The material is presented with the hopes of creating a better understanding between the public utility, the truck manufacturer, and the body or equipment manufacturer.
