National Truck & Equipment Sales is the Columbus’s division of Robertson Truck Group. Providing a full mechanical shop on site and access to our fabrication division, Ohio Truck Equipment, located in Mount Vernon, we can build any of our existing chassis to your industry specifications.
What makes us different from practically any other truck dealer is that we provide our clients the opportunity to upfit their own trucks or choose one from our inventory and build it to their own specific needs. National Truck & Equipment Sales understands how important it is to keep your equipment functional and on the road in order to keep your business moving that is why we work with only trusted body manufactures and source quality vehicle parts. Within our 25,000 square-foot fabrication facility, we can take any chassis and alter it in order to make your next job easier.
Having the right piece of equipment on the back of your truck is key to any job, large or small. Many factors are important in order to establish the capability between a body and a truck. Gross vehicle weight rating, payload, gross axle weight rating, wheelbase, fuel and DEF tank location are just a few to consider. Most importantly understand how the cab to axle (or trunnion) and wheelbase measurement comes into play. See descriptions below:
- * Cab-to-axle (CA) dimension. The distance from the back of the cab to the centerline of the rear axle, this dimension helps determine the length of body that can be mounted on the chassis. A similar concept for tandem-axle trucks is the CT dimension, measured from the rear of the cab to the centerline of the tandem.
- * Wheelbase. The distance between the front axle and the rear axle (or the centerline of tandem axles) affects body installation, truck performance, and whether a particular axle is overloaded.
