Traffic Management Dropside Trucks For Sale

Traffic management trucks feature standard cabs fitted with specially adapted bodies that can accommodate all of the equipment associated with properly controlling the flow of vehicles on highways of all sizes. Because these vehicles are intended to be deployed on busy and dangerous roads, they come with features that will not be found elsewhere. And a variety of used models in this category are available for contractors that are looking to extend their fleets as their business grows.

The dropside trailer is a common feature of traffic management trucks, providing operators with easy access to the equipment in the rear. Many models will also come with reversing camera systems to make sure that manoeuvrability is not compromised if they are being used in confined spaces or places with restricted visibility. While some of these trucks will be capable of taking on a fairly broad range of roles on the road, others are customised further, with incident vehicles that feature workshops which specialists can use for on-the-fly maintenance and the repair of equipment. A buyer will need to decide which type of traffic management truck will fit their needs, although the limited availability of bespoke models may help to make this decision a little easier.

Traffic Management Dropside TruckSafety Features

One feature that will need to be present, correct and operational on a used traffic management truck is the rear direction arrow, which performs a vital function when the truck is being used in areas of high congestion or where drivers are travelling at speed. This illuminating arrow and other beacons around the truck will ensure that drivers coming towards it from behind will know on which side it is safe to pass, rather than having to play a guessing game. And such safety and warning equipment is just as necessary to keep the crew safe, which is why second-hand models must be inspected to check that everything operates as expected.

Integrated Crash Cushions

The body of a traffic management truck may be built of aluminium to help keep the weight down and improve fuel efficiency. It can also come with cone wells so that traffic cones can be stored safely and accessed quickly when they need to be deployed on the road. Modern models can come with integrated crash cushions so that damage to other vehicles and road users in the event of a collision is minimised. And because of the hazards that these vehicles invariably face in daily use, buyers of used models should establish the history of any that they consider and look out for any major repairs or signs of damage.

Day cabs will room for three are typically used in conjunction with traffic management bodies. And the previous owner may also be providing a range of signage and other equipment to go with a second-hand model, helping to keep costs down as long as the kit is in a usable condition. Air conditioning, electric windows, satellite navigation and digital tachometer technology can be found in contemporary cabs, improving comfort levels and ensuring operator satisfaction.
