Crysteel Mfg - Hoists & Dump BodiesCrysteel Select Dump Bodies


The Select Dump TruckBuild it Your Way

The Select body program allows you to essentially design your own dump body without incurring the extra cost and leadtime normally associated with custom designed products. Crysteel’s industry exclusive “Build it Your Way” program is more than just a concept — it’s a customer-driven ordering system that makes manufacturing to specific requests a reality.

Select between traditional square body styles or elliptical bodies, and then choose the best steel for the floor, sides, and ends to fit real-world applications.

A complete list of options are available for front design, side height and bracing, tailgate design and understructure. Additional accessories further customize your Crysteel Select dump body such as cab shields, fenders and ladders. Crysteel’s 5-year warranty is not an option, it is standard on every Select dump body.

Selecting the proper steel to build your dump body is extremely important to the performance of your body. Steel comes in many strengths and thickness and it is important to know that thicker is not always better. The high strength steels available allow the use of thinner materials that have higher yield ratings to add strength and can reduce body weight significantly. Lighter, stronger bodies increase body life, payload capacity, and hauling revenues. Build your body your way to best fit your applications.

  • Asphalt Contractors: As an Asphalt contractor you need functionality and versatility in the dump body you use. Crysteel offers you both the ability to custom design your body with features like a sloped front that promotes better clean out, as well as an asphalt rear that allows you to pull away from a paver box without lowering your body. Being functionally efficient on the job saves time and improves profit margins.
