There are plenty of options to choose from when it comes to the chassis and superstructure of a truck. You first need to know what the purpose of the truck will be. Is it to dump and transport heavy materials? Then a Tipper truck will suit you best. Or do you need to lift cargo in and out of the truck? A Crane truck is then the best thing to consider. In short, every situation requires a truck with a specific superstructure. Other examples of superstructures are: Concrete mixers, box trucks, recovery trucks, garbage trucks, BDF-system trucks and many more.
A tipper truck, also known as a dump truck or dumper, is mainly used to transport sand, gravel, earth, rubble and other construction materials. The name of this vehicle says it all, they dump all your construction materials by extending a hydraulic cylinder to unload the payload. Looking for a dumper to transport, load and unload your construction materials?
A container truck is perfect for transporting containers. However, each container truck may have a different container system. For instance, there are trucks with a hooklift, chainlift, skip loader or cable systems. Some systems are used for smaller containers in the city, while others are made for cargo containers.
A refrigerated truck, also known as a reefer truck or refrigerated box truck, is mainly used for transporting food and flowers, for example. Therefore, a refrigerated truck is almost always used for distribution within cities and towns and for delivery purposes. Multi-temp units are often very important, creating different temperature zones within your refrigerated truck.
A box truck, also called a closed truck or closed box truck, can be used for many purposes. Buying a box truck can therefore be challenging. There are box trucks with tailgates, box trucks with different heights and box trucks with different weights. Fortunately, at basworld.com you’ll find more than enough options to succeed.
A truck with BDF swap body is essential for fast and efficient loading and unloading of containers. BDF systems, also called BDF swap systems or swap bodies, are in fact easy to use. A truck lowers its height and can therefore drive under certain containers. If they then come back up and secure the container, they can continue driving with the container.
A flatbed truck, open box truck or platform truck is a great and convenient way to transport goods. You can choose from box trucks with a platform only, or with sideboards. This allows you to protect your cargo. Trucks without side boards are used when the load is just too wide. A tailgate closes the rear in most cases.
It's quite often difficult to decide which truck really suits you and your business. That is trucks and box trucks are used for many different purposes due to their different models and designs. Below, we compare some of the leading models and their main difference.
The DAF XF and DAF LF are two completely different models. When it comes to heavier work, the XF (like the CF) is often used. DAF's latest model is the XG, this model is also often used for heavy work and transport. The DAF LF box truck, on the other hand, is mainly used for distribution within cities and villages. As such, the DAF LF is a smaller version than the XF and CF.
You can use a Mercedes Actros for everything. This powerful truck can be used with a BDF swap body, as a container truck or tipper truck. The Mercedes Antos, on the other hand, is used almost exclusively as a distribution truck. You can think of closed box trucks or refrigerated trucks. Other Mercedes models include; Atego, Arocs, SK and Axor.
The MAN TGS is the king of any construction site. That is why it is most commonly used for heavy-duty and construction work.

Other MAN models include, for example, the TGX, TGA and TGL.
The Volvo FMX is mainly used for heavy work, such as construction work. An FMX is therefore also often equipped as a tipper truck, with a crane or as a concrete mixer. The Volvo FM, on the other hand, is suitable for many types of work. In fact, an FM is your all-round business partner. It is mainly used as a distribution truck. Other models from Volvo are FH, FL, FE, FH16 en FH500.
