The 10T-16T allows for much greater carrying capacity whilst maintaining the manoeuvrability of small trucks, as new 7.5T chassis will often not achieve sufficient payload.
This body weight comes with straight ramps, giving a very low loading angle due to its lower chassis height. It also retains the small external dimensions of the smaller 7.5T body, making it ideal for inner city deliveries, which is a popular usage of this truck configuration.
As trucks are getting heavier, more and more clients choose this particular range, giving them up to double the payload for little extra purchase and running costs. For example, a 12 tonne chassis will give a payload of up to around 6 tonnes, compared with just around 3 tonnes for a 7.5T vehicle. The most common deck length for this size of truck is around 6 metres.

Reasons to buy
The Higher Standard
Our stringent Quality Assurance processes, combined with high quality materials and CE marked components, guarantee the reliability of the product and minimise down-time. Those exacting standards extend to our customer service too, the Sterling culture of integrity means responding quickly and keeping you informed at every stage of the process.
Built to last
Our products are built using only the finest and strongest materials, finished off with a galvanising process that ensures they stand the test of time. This eliminates the need for costly maintenance, making the cost of ownership lower. It also means that many truck manufactures value a truck fitted with a Sterling body with up to 10% higher residual value.
Intelligent additions, like our electro-hydraulically operated ramps, not only save effort, they save fuel too. That means lower operating costs overall. Or how about something you can’t put a price on? The unique shallow loading angle of our cheesewedge ramp dramatically improves loading safety, giving you peace of mind.
Intelligent innovations are made all the better when they are easy on the eye. Our clean aesthetics give a visual boost to your brand image, hiding rams on our cheeswedge design and keeping overall clutter to a minimum.
