PHil's Propane Service Body with Crane and specialized compartments

Built for Phil's Propane in Tiverton, this Ford F-650 features a Roush electronic liquid propane injection conversion with dual 75 gallon saddle tanks. Aquidneck Machine then equipped it with an MCB hybrid propane body. We bumped the center of the headboard out about 4 feet to allow for large propane tanks to be carried in the body with the Theiman aluminum lift gate closed. AlumLine custom cabinets mounted on either side of the bump-out provide extra storage.
This truck is a great example of Aquidneck Machine's ability to work closely with truck owners and operators to build a truck specific to their individual needs.

The body features lots of tool and small parts storage, the horizontal compartment has slide out bins for fittings and other necessities needed for propane service and installation work. The Venturo HT50 KX crane does the heavy lifting and is equipped with radio remote wireless proportional controls and hydraulic outriggers.

PHil's Propane Service Body specialized side compartment

This 1952 Chevrolet Model 5700 15,000lb. GVWR (the equivalent of today's 4500) truck started life working for Coca-Cola in the Mid-West with a beverage body out back. At some point it was relegated to life on the farm where it worked with a dumping grain body. 
vintage Chevy custom car carrier
A few years ago a used car dealer in Berkley, MA rescued it from the scrapper's torch and dragged it home for a meticulous 2 year restoration. The truck retains it's original 250 cubic inch, inline 6 cylinder engine with 4 speed transmission and vacuum operated 2-speed rear axle. 

The only modification made to the truck was an upgrade from a 6 to 12 volt system.

 Aquidneck Machine  contracted to build (to customer spec) the period looking auto transport body for this 1952 Chevrolet. 

The body is 16ft. long overall and has a curved transition deck. 

A 5000# line pull Warn winch is recessed into the deck up front with a cable roller recessed in at the crest of the slope. 

A pair of 7000# Ox-Lite ramps reside hidden underneath with a lever operated lowering device for access and stowage. 

A pair of 48" tool boxes with Stainless Steel doors are built into the deeply skirted sides. The only departure from 1952 technology is the 12 volt recessed lighting. 

The color is current Jaguar, the paint is PPG urethane enamel, the deck is Rhino-Lined, and the results are spectacular.

combo proclass dump and leaf blower body
11 foot Pro-Class Dump Body performs double duty as a leaf blower body

This custom leaf-blower body started life as an 11ft. Pro-Class dump body. Aquidneck Machine built removable high sides from bright aluminum treadplate, than we raised the tailgate hinge point (and tailgate) to the same height as the sides, providing a much larger tailgate opening to allow large loads of mulch, grass clippings, and leaves to be dumped without laying the tailgate down. We created an opening and attachment provisions for the customer's BillyGoat leaf vac, which can stay mounted while a load is dumped. The cover is nylon mesh stretched over bows that are held in place only by the bungees that secure the tarp. The whole leaf rig comes off in minutes when not needed, and an aluminum plate covers the vac hole.
