HAGERSTOWN, Md. (November 20, 2015) — Jerr-Dan Corporation, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, is releasing a new design for a wrecker that really goes the extra mile. Innovative tool storage and unmatched performance, place this wrecker at the top of its class in towing and recovery.
The non corrosive exterior of the 35 Ton JFB, made of weather-tight and impact-resistant polypropylene, is so durable it comes with a limited Lifetime Warranty* on the body. It offers longer service life than any metallic or composite body in the industry.
“Our JFB body series was designed with our customer’s best interest in mind. We wanted to show them that we truly care by producing a product designed around their needs and opinions. The structure of the JFB will keep long term cost and body repair costs at a minimum for our customers,” says, Jeffrey Irr, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing.
Engineered storage solutions prove that this truck has more than just brawn—it’s got brains too! Here at Jerr-Dan, we realize how important it is that our customers be able to easily access essential rigging and tools to efficiently perform on-scene operations. As part of the JFB body series, this truck will be available in a gold or silver series. Gold series wreckers offer pre-set storage solutions (for a “turn-key” unit), while silver series wreckers allow for the operator to organize the interior.
In regards to the 35 Ton JFB units, Heavy Duty Project Manager, Shane Coleman says, “We offer our 35 Ton units in the Integrated and Independent line. The Independent units can be built with our 480 coach boom, or 530 under-lift— the same under-lifts used on our 50 Ton line. For customers who do a greater percentage of Heavy Towing, the option to build a severe duty towing unit while keeping cost and weight down is possible. Our most popular unit, the Integrated, carries our 300 and 350 underlift fit for the standard heavy duty task load. These units are offered with various equipment options in the winch, wire rope, under-lift, and remote controls. All of this coupled with the JFB Body, brings functionality, ascetics, and performance demand to our 35 Ton unit.”
The 35 Ton JFB carries higher design factors than its leading competitor, making it a great investment for Jerr-Dan customers.
