Load King Launches New Mechanics Body, Propane Service Body Series

October 31, 2018 - Today, Load King LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Custom Truck One Source (Custom Truck) has launched its new Voyager Series, a collection of high-performance mechanics bodies designed to serve an array of heavy-equipment industries. 

The new Voyager Series offers three main models: The Voyager I mechanics body, an Under-CDL model, the Voyager II mechanics body, and the Voyager P propane service body, built specifically for propane marketers. 

All models in the Voyager Series are expected to surpass the competition in payload capacity and quality, while maintaining a competitive price. 

The Voyager I and Voyager II mechanics bodies both feature a state-of-the-art modular control system with pushbutton control panel and an LCD diagnostic monitor, CTECH drawer sets, a custom-designed cab guard, an industry-leading compartment and bed storage, supreme corrosion protection through Load King’s full-lining coverage and chrome-plated handles, and unmatched visibility and lighting. Both are available with optional rail gear. The Voyager® P propane service body will feature a tri-axis sensor to stay level with ease, Rumber bed floor for no-slip bed access, with a removable pipe vice attachment and aluminum side rails. 

The launch of the Voyager Series marks the latest addition to Load King’s recent vocational collection, which was introduced beside several new and enhanced trailer lines in 2017. 

Fred Ross, chief executive officer of Custom Truck, said, “We brought several lines in-house in order to meet the needs of our customers. The vocational collection paired well with Load King’s iconic trailer portfolio and strong reputation for quality manufacturing.” 

Ben Link, executive vice president of production and supply chain for Load King, added, “Since joining Custom Truck in 2015, we’ve deliberately expanded Load King’s product offering outside of trailers, to further position the company as the only single-source equipment provider in the industry. By leveraging Custom Truck’s leadership in the vocational realm and its proximity to operators, and merging Load King’s manufacturing expertise and innovative design, we are able to efficiently penetrate and influence the equipment markets, with superior offerings.”
