Slideback Recovery and Transportation Vehicles

TRUK California ‘Ultra Low Approach’ Slidebacks in Steel or Aluminium

Take a Look at the 'Ultra Low Approach' in Action

Our California ‘Ultra Low Approach’ Slidebacks have payloads ranging from 3.5 tonnes to 12 tonnes and are designed and individually custom built to fit the majority of European chassis ranging from 7.5 tonnes and over.

With the optional Aluminium Outer Bodies, hot dipped Galvanised Chassis Sub Frames, Inner Bodies and Chassis Fittings, our Slidebacks give you more legal payload without any of the problems of rust you might have with steel.

Our aluminium sections, that are produced to our unique designs and manufactured from our own dies, give you great strength. And our Outer bodies’ main sliding channels are made from aluminium, not steel, and welded to our aluminium floor. Giving you more payload and none of the problems that can occur when steel channels are clamped with bolts to an aluminium floor.

Our Ultra Low Loading Angles give you the ultimate in low loading angles.
