NEW Stellar® TMAX™ Aluminum Mechanic Service Body.

Stellar Industries Introduces Revolutionary Aluminum Mechanic Service Body


Garner, Iowa – Stellar Industries, Inc. is introducing the TMAX™ Aluminum series of mechanic service bodies.

This body is the latest evolutionary design in the TMAX Series and combines the proven crane carrying reliability of the Stellar Torq-Isolator torsion box with its long-standing success in aluminum service bodies.

The TMAX Aluminum is available in three sizes, the TMAX™ 1-11, the TMAX™ 2-11, and the TMAX™ 2-14.

These aluminum bodies are 780 to 1440-pounds lighter than their steel counterparts while still incorporating the proven Torq-Isolator understructure. The TMAX Aluminum Series features the industry’s first aluminum extrusion compartment top. The extruded top is formed of high strength aluminum and features two built-in accessory mounting rails that eliminate the need to drill holes in the compartment tops to mount equipment. The advent of the built-in accessory mounting rails makes mounting and relocating accessories simple. This rail system also greatly reduces the chance of water intrusion into the compartments. The extruded top also incorporates wire harness channels inside the compartments for easy installation and to keep wires out of the way. The bodies also come with many of the same standard features as the steel counterparts. This includes billet style stainless steel hinges, 3-point compression locks, double-panel doors, and double-spring over-center door closures.

“Stellar is using its unique historical core competencies to bring steel and aluminum together to make the ultimate heavy-duty, yet lightweight, body,” says Tim Davison, product manager at Stellar Industries. He continues, “We’ve designed a great product with this TMAX Aluminum series. We made sure we tested this body in real-world situations taken to the extreme. And we are ready to show the marketplace that we’ve done our homework. We want to prove to the customer that we build a fantastic product.”

Matt Schroeder, engineering manager at Stellar Industries adds, “There is a demand in the marketplace for lighter solutions and a way to combat corrosion. We’ve taken that opportunity to solve these problems with our history, experience, and knowledge, of how to build heavy-duty bodies that can withstand the demands the operators require.”
