HAGERSTOWN, Md. (November 19, 2015) — Jerr-Dan Corporation, an Oshkosh Corporation Company (NYSE:OSK), is releasing a new 50 Ton wrecker that delivers what matters most: performance, innovation, and dependability.
While still maintaining Jerr-Dan structural design, the new and improved JFB body series is the strongest on the market. Constructed of weather-tight and impact-resistant polypropylene, its rugged, non-corrosive exterior is so durable it comes with a limited Lifetime Warranty* on the body.
Following NFPA guidelines, the body of the 50 Ton wrecker is constructed with load rated access areas and designed for efficient incident management. Jerr-Dan Corporation engineers understand how important it is to design their products with the customer in mind. This truck’s roll-up aluminum doors, strategically placed LED lights, and increased storage space prove that Jerr-Dan is once again listening to the voice of their customers.
The JFB body series is available in a gold or silver series. The Gold series offers pre-set storage solutions (for a “turn-key” unit), and the silver series allows the operator to organize the interior. Both options provide solutions to keep essential rigging and tools organized for ease of access and efficiency during on-scene operations.
Jerr-Dan 50 Ton units are offered in both Integrated and Independent configurations with a two or three stage recovery boom option. The Independent units can be built with the company’s 530 three stage or 565 three or four stage underlift options. In regards to the underlift options, Heavy Duty Project Manager, Shane Coleman says, “These options allow our customer to equip the unit based on their particular book of business. The Jerr-Dan under-lift equips the operators with an under-lift that targets heavy and severe duty towing. Now coupled with the JFB Body, the 50 Ton brings the functionality, ascetics, and performance demanded in the industry today.”
Once again, Jerr-Dan Corporation completes the package and offers you more for your business. Senior Director of Sales and Marketing, Jeffrey Irr says, “More towing performance, more storage, and more time-saving organization– equals less time on the side of the road.”
*48 business hours from notificiation, valid in North American only, some restrictions apply. Limited lifetime warranty provided only by the body supplier and not Jerr-Dan. For more information or to obtain a copy of the limited lifetime warranty contact Jerr-Dan warranty department.
