Devon Hardwoods grow demountable fleet.

Devon Hardwood 057
Devon Hardwood 058

Long established timber importer Devon Hardwoods Ltd of Sidmouth have added to their fleet of demountable equipment with the introduction of an additional DAF FA LF55 chassis provided by Wessex DAF and two demountable curtainside bodies.

All of the demountable equipment and bodywork has been manufactured by Abel Systems Ltd to be compatible with that previously supplied by their parent company Wheelbase Engineering Ltd.

The equipment of choice in this case is for a ‘Contact System’ where all of the demountable legs are within the width of the body, which is an ideal situation when loading long lengths with a side loader fork lift truck.

In this case the trucks rear axle air suspension provides the lifting medium when mounting and demounting the body, so eliminating the need for any supplementary lifting device.

The body specification, including the width, has intentionally been kept compact to reduce the possibilities of damage when negotiating narrow West Country roads and to enhance manoeuvrability when operating in confined spaces.
