Roll-Back Bed For Pickups
"So far as we know, it's the first rollback truck in the industry for 314 ton pickups," says Don Brown, designer of Roll Arc, a new roll-back truck bed that fits both 314 and 1 ton pickup trucks.
"It's hydraulically powered, so you can lift a full load with a 3 ton pickup. Hydraulics also let you install a roll-back on a truck with automatic transmission," Brown explains.
The 314 ton Roll Arc has a lifting capacity of 3,000 lbs. It features an electric winch for loading and anchoring freight. Bed is 84 in. wide, 136 in, long and includes a grilled
backboard up front and stake pockets around the edges. The bed for 1-ton pickups is 88 in. wide and 188 in. long.
"The bed slides back 36 in. before lowering to the ground. You can drive small implements right onto the truck and easily load or roll other loads right on. Otherwise, it can be used like a regular flatbed," says Brown.
