Any 6×2 or 6×4 Chassis with rear air suspension is compatible with this body and will deliver a sizeable payload of between 14.5 and 15T, depending on chassis weight.
The 26T plant body is configurable for many different sectors and can be supplied with any ramp system from the comprehensive range offered by Sterling.
This body can transport a multitude of vehicles efficiently, from excavators, dumpers and rollers, to large access platforms boom lifts and scissor lifts. Every client has unique requirements and different machine combinations to transport, but the huge choice of extra options and accessories mean we can configure a body for almost any scenario. With deck lengths possible of up to 9.5M, there’s no limit to what different combinations of machines can be carried.
The 26T body works perfectly when fitted with front mounted lorry loader cranes and gives the versatility of transporting driven plant and access machines as well as non-powered cabins and other equipment which would be loaded using the crane.
Alongside this, a double-bend Beavertail is fitted as standard to give the shallowest possible loading angle which gives you confidence that machines with the lowest ground clearance can be loaded with the highest safety.
Extensive use of high tensile steels allows us to save weight and increase strength, which is paramount for our customers, no matter what sector. We can also guarantee short lead times with our National Small Series type approval available on the vast majority of 26T builds.

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.
