January 13, 2023  By  Don Horne

There will be numerous presentations featured at CONEXPO in March, including how to improve efficiency with haul truck customizations and efficiency.

In his session, Josh Swank of Philippi-Hagenbuchwill discuss how customized bodies and attachments can allow producers to maximize the efficiency of their off-highway haul trucks.

Swank will showcase how customizing a new truck or retrofitting an old one can maximize payload capacity, reduce dump times and down time, eliminate carryback, minimize repair service, and maintenance needs, while making the truck more environmentally efficient.

Swank will close out with a Q&A session


The learning objectives include:

  • Understand aggregate-specific truck bodies and attachments;
  • How to prevent damage and reduce maintenance to extend the life of your haul truck;
  • How to maximize the efficiency of your haul truck and improve ROI; and
  • Learn how little changes can add up to major productivity gains in terms of volume moved as well as payload gains.

Where: ConExpo – Con/AGG 2023, West Hall, Room 201-202

When: Thursday, March 16, 2023 at 10:45 am – 11:45 am
