Webinar: Haul More with Less, how to improve haul truck performance
Haul more with less. Lower hauling costs and maximize payload while lowering your carbon footprint and ensuring a safer working environment. The Metso Truck Body is a unique, one-piece, lightweight hybrid haul truck tray. The customized combination of high-strength steel and rubber is optimized to your specific process.
Haul more with less
Less carbon emissions
Lighter body weight equals lower fuel consumption per hauled ton.
Up to 97% less vibrations
Better working environment and reduced maintenance costs.
Up to 50% less noise
The flexible rubber liner absorbs the energy of every impact reducing the noise levels.
The rubber lasts up to 300% longer than steel resulting in a significant operational cost saving as well as fewer liner parts being used.
The Metso Truck Body is 20-30% lighter than a conventional steel-lined truck body.
This lets you haul more payload per round, improving operational efficiency.
Better fuel economy
The lower weight of Metso Truck Body in combination with the increased payload equals a lower fuel consumption and less CO2 emissions per hauled ton.
The benefits add up during return rounds when the truck is empty - it simply takes less fuel to move a lighter body.

The rubber lining in Metso Truck Body lasts up to 300% longer than conventional steel lining. While absorbing the impact of loading, it also protects the chassi of the truck and the body itself from wear, prolonging the life of the truck and drastically reducing the need for maintenance.
The modular design of the rubber lining means that only the worn parts need to be replaced. This is done quickly and easily without welding, thanks to the bolted fixing method, resulting in fewer parts and less transportation.
Each Metso Truck Body is engineered with a customized lining solution fit for the operation's specific requirements.
This means that the body is suited for all applications. Metso's Flexible Lining option can prevent sticky material that builds up in the truck body, also known as carry-back.
With no carry-back, the entire capacity of the truck can be fully utilized to haul payload, which further improves operational efficiency.
Better working environment
The Metso Truck Body is an investment in the well-being of your staff.
Thanks to the rubber lining, the Metso Truck Body is much more comfortable to drive than a conventional steel-lined truck body.
The proven benefits include up to 50% less perceived noise and 97% less vibrations, which significantly improves the working environment for truck drivers.
Maximized wear protection at the lowest possible weight
The elastic rubber in Metso Outoec Truck Body absorbs the energy of every impact during operation, preventing it from reaching the frame and thus allowing for a lighter-than-usual, high structural strength steel frame beneath the rubber. Thanks to this, the body can absorb maximum shock at the lowest possible weight.
Bolted rubber elements require no welding during maintenance
The rubber lining in Metso Truck Body consists of elements that are bolted in place, utilizing pre-welded studs. Worn elements can be changed individually, and replacing them requires no welding or oxycutting.
Up to 300% longer wear life
High-quality rubber is excellent for damping impact and vibrations and is widely used to reduce stress and strain in different applications. Due to its high elasticity and material characteristics, the energy of an impact is efficiently absorbed into the rubber and spread out as heat.
The rubber lining in the Metso Truck Body outlasts a conventional steel lining by up to 300%. For best results, the lining in the Metso Truck Body is always custom-engineered to fit your application. Different thicknesses can be used in different spots, depending on factors such as load angle and drop height.
Available for all major off-highway trucks
The Metso Truck Body is available for all major off-highway trucks. It will increase your hauling capacity, independent of what brand of truck and truck box you are using today.
