Truck body


GLT truck bodies are designed and built using the same level of detail as all our trailers.

If you are ordering a dog trailer with the truck body, then our engineers will design both bodies to match each other in both overall height and looks. The complete range of body styles are available. See below for options.


Combination is the chassis tipper lead with a 6 axle dog chassis tipper GLT has the ability to build bodies onto all popular brands of trucks. All nuts, bolts and washers are stainless steel. Grain scrapers, shovels, brooms and grain chutes are equipped as standard. Every truck body is professionally detailed before it is delivered to the customer.

Technical specs

Truck body

Length:14’9″ to 23′
Height:4′ to 8’6″
Capacity:13 to 44 cubic metres
Tare Weight:1.3 to 2.1 tonnes

All GLT aluminium bodies are fabricated from European sourced marine grade aluminium plate. Floor and wall sheet thicknesses can be customised to suit the application.

Each body is built on our exclusive extruded aluminium floor beams. The beams are specifically cambered to suit the body length. The process of welding the floor sheet to the beams and cambering the beams all happens simultaneously.
Top coamings are also an exclusive aluminium extrusion. These specialised extrusions increase the tub body strength while maintaining exceptional tare weight. All top coamings are either huck riveted or bolted with stainless steel bolts. This method of construction allows the coaming to flex and reduces the risk of cracking.
All trailers with a king pin position less then 900mm come standard with a Jost body lock. GLT bodies are designed to have the hoist feet mounted directly above the king pin to increase strength and stability while tipping. Bodies with upright hoists need the body lock to help hold the body in position while traveling.
Fronius machines are used to create superior welds on all aluminium sections.

Body type options include

Straight Body – This standard body type is a strong, cost effective and a light weight option. Choose from two body widths: Narrow – 2,330mm or Wide (standard) – 2,480mm.

Side wall options include

Plate – 4mm to 12mm thickness. Choose from either mill finish, mill bright (polished), painted or vinyl.

Standard Lower Curve – The GLT lower curve is an exclusive extrusion. The side sheet and floor sheet slot into the extrusion before they are hand welded into place.

Pressed Sides – GLT can remove the lower curve and press the side sheet to meet the floor sheet. This will reduce the tare weight by around 70kg. It also increases the strength of the tubs making it an ideal option for carrying liquid based goods.

Plank – GLT custom extruded planks. These are ideal for maximum height bodies as they reduce the amount of side wall bulge. This option will increase the trailer tare weight by around 80kg depending on length and height.

Front sheet options include

Standard Flat Front Sheet – This is our standard front sheet which is 5mm thick with a polished finish. Other thicknesses and finishes are available.

Rounded Front Sheet – This option is ideal for carrying liquid based products. The front sheet is specially rolled before being welded into the place. As liquids move forward when decelerating, the shape of the front sheet reduces the liquid’s impact. We recommend a thickness of 6mm to add stiffness to the front sheet which reduces fatigue.


Each truck body is mounted to our sub frame which is fabricated from a mixture of RHS, 700 grade and 350 grade profiles.

Sub frames are sand blasted and then painted to match your truck chassis colour. Body Rear pivot points are fabricated onto the sub frame and also bolted onto the truck chassis.

Ringfeder assemblies are custom built to suit each truck. Our team fabricate the assembly from 700, 350 and 250 grade steel. Just like the sub frame, all steel parts are sand blasted and painted to match the truck chassis.
