Providing a comfortable and reliable ride, the severe duty twin-steer chassis offers a stable platform for increased truck efficiency and performance.
- 114SD Set-Back Front Axle Truck with Beck Industrial Mixer—114SD: The 114SD SBA features a lightweight, yet durable steel-reinforced aluminum cab with a 48-inch bumper-to-front-axle setting for optimized weight distribution and turning ability for more productive ready-mix operations.
