DUMP BODIES

Maximise your fleet capabilities with an Austin off-highway dump truck body. Austin engineers and manufactures Westech and JEC truck bodies, as well as OEM-designed bodies. Our dump bodies are custom-engineered to suit all makes and models of trucks and applications.

At Austin, we produce dump bodies to suit our client’s unique application. Our engineering design team work closely with our clients to discuss their site and operational conditions, including material density, the abrasiveness of material, hang-up history and loading practises.

WESTECH BODIES

The Westech range of bodies delivers reliability, durability and efficiency. Westech bodies are designed to lower operating costs and maximise fleet capabilities.

Westech bodies are available in three distinct body types—hard rock, coal and coal/overburden combo. A variety of wear packages are available to suit specific mining applications.

Other features include:

  • Special-grade steel bolsters, ribs and structural components for increased durability
  • Optimised welding for improved structural integrity
  • Maximised payload potential to suit gross vehicle weight for the lowest cost per tonne
  • Highly refined design proven to reduce hang up
  • Superior load stability and operator comfort for improved safety

WESTECH FLOW CONTROL BODY

The Westech Flow Control Body® has a revolutionary floor design that controls the flow of material during the dumping cycle, keeping the load’s centre of gravity in front of the rear axle longer.

This unique design reduces material surge from the truck body and eliminates lift at the front of the truck, increasing stability and safety.

The more even and controlled flow also:

  • Reduces dust generated during the dumping process
  • Extends body life by causing less friction on the floor
  • Enhances lift cylinder life by keeping them in compression
  • Improves crusher life and efficiency

The Westech Flow Control Body® is available for all truck brands and models in coal, coal/overburden combo designs.

JEC BODIES

The JEC body is a lighter weight modular design that improves payload and reduces overall operating costs.

The bodies feature an easy-to-remove replaceable floor, eliminating the need for heavy-wear liner plates. This saving in overall body weight improves the carrying capacity and increases payload potential.

Other features include:

  • A replaceable canopy plate
  • A skeleton frame to last for the life of the truck
  • Curved internal transitions to reduce hang-up
  • Customised floor and sidewall thickness to suit the loading tool
  • Compliance with OEM specifications

JEC-LD

The JEC-LD truck body is a high-performance dump truck body designed to increase productivity and reduce hang-up.

The body design is fully customisable to suit any mine-specific application and fatigue requirement, and is available in both ‘straight floor’ and ‘combo gate-free’ designs to cater for fixed or varying specific gravity (SG).

Other features include:

  • Optimised body structure for real-world loading conditions
  • A true 10–15% weight saving over standard conventional bodies
  • Increased fatigue resistance over conventional bodies
  • Tapered sides over the full length of the body resulting in less damage from loading equipment
  • Impact resistant plates
  • Large radius transitions assisting in the reduction of material carryback
  • Compatibility with all OEM chassis
