Thanks to a remarkable innovation, Champagne et Frère is the talk of the town in the trucking industry.
This new leading product is a dump bed which can be installed on all trucks once the original box has been removed, even trucks of less than 4500 kilos, such as ¾ to 1 ton Ford, GMC and Dodge vehicles. This is very interesting for persons with a class 5 driver’s permit, since they do not need to obtain a specific class 1 permit. They will be driving a truck that does not have the mention heavy vehicle at the automobile insurance bureau.
« We are constantly preoccupied by the needs of our customers, which brings us to offer trucks and bins made to order without any compromise on quality », says Daniel Champagne, president of Champagne et Frères, an industry located in Saint-François-Xavier-de-Brompton in the Eastern Townships.
Indeed, this product is of exceptional quality. The dump bin made by Champagne et Frère has sides which can be folded down and are also removable. Moreover, the back corners can be dismounted thus becoming a flatbed. These were especially designed for ¾ to 1 ton Ford, GMC and Dodge trucks. Activated by a 7 ton hydraulic cylinder, the bin has a 48 degree angle for easier unloading. It offers 60 percent more loading capacity than the original bin. It is highly durable due to the exterior powder coating, thus making it remarkably resistant.
Take note that the installation does not require any piercing since we mount the bin in its original anchorage and it also has supports for tools and canvases. « We have 20 installers throughout the province and within the next few months our product will be exported to the United States and will also be available in Western Canada» proudly concludes Daniel et Jocelyn Champagne.
