READING, Pa. — Reading Truck, a premier truck equipment manufacturer and distributor, expanded its truck body line-up with the introduction of its new Contractor Body. Designed with today’s contractors in mind, the Contractor Body reflects Reading Truck’s commitment to innovation, manufacturing excellence, and customer needs.  

“Our goal is to provide our customers with a flexible, safe, and durable design,” said Eric McNally, vice president of sales and marketing at Reading Truck. “It’s a really great option for our customers who are seeking a versatile workhorse that can be customized to meet their needs.” 

Reflecting decades of engineering expertise, Reading Truck’s new Contractor Body comes equipped with many of the features that customers expect from Reading Truck, including A60 galvannealed steel construction, e-coat primer and powder coat finish.

“Contractors are demanding a better-equipped and more flexible work truck, and we believe that we have met that challenge,” said McNally.  

Available in 10-foot and 12-foot lengths, the Contractor Body is built upon Reading’s heavy-duty platform body and includes standard features like a fork truck loadable material rack, 12 gauge hot-rolled deck plate, moveable tailboard for different space configurations with 17-inch fold-down rails, and Reading's signature tool boxes, among others. The Contractor Body also addresses the safety of operators with enhanced LED lighting, and an interchangeable tapered bulkhead available to improve visibility from the cab. Many options are also available, including a top-opening Spacemaker® and shovel box for long storage.

The new Contractor Body is backed by Reading Truck’s three-year, industry-leading warranty. For more information, visit
