What Is De-Mount Bodywork?
De-Mount Bodies refers to bodywork that can be simply detached/re-attached from the chassis cab or draw-bar trailer unit and stand independently on integral landing legs.

The Don-Bur De-Mountable Bodywork system is engineered and manufactured in-house, including chassis-cab installations, trailers, base frames and bodywork.
- Extensive galvanisation
- Curtain or Box bodywork
- Straight Lift or Contact Systems
- Compatible with your existing equipment
To give greater flexibility in the warehouse, loading and unloading can be carried out at a time to suit the warehouse staff. The vehicles and drivers are out delivering instead of remaining on the loading dock waiting to be loaded.
- Reduced driver hours
- Faster Turnaround from the loading point
- Eliminates "parked-up" units
Action: Bodywork frame rolls horizontally along guide rails before being fixed with Twist-Locks.
Two fixed legs at rear corners and two fold-up legs at front.
Action: Bodywork lifts vertically away from the chassis using the vehicle air suspension or on-board hydraulic lifting device before being fixed with Twist-Locks. Heavy duty cones are fitted for ease of unit location.
Four fold-up legs positioned at each corner.
The Straight-lift system lends itself well to draw-bar combinations as both de-mountable units can be positioned and fixed in one move.
By using De-Mountable Bodywork with Draw-Bar combinations further flexibility is achieved, enabling both trunking and secondary distribution without expensive warehousing or staff. By optimising the number of prime movers/draw-bar trailers and de-mount units, operators can minimise their fleetholding.
