IMT Expands Mechanics Truck Line

IMT Expands Mechanics Truck Line

Iowa Mold Tooling Co. Inc., Garner, Iowa, has expanded the DSC12 mechanics truck line to include a compact, fuel-efficient addition to their Dominator family of mechanics trucks. The DSC12 includes an option for any 10,500-pound GVW chassis, while the previously announced Sprinter chassis version will become the DSC12S. At only 1,700 pounds, the DSC12 is the most compact of all the trucks in the Dominator series. The DSC12 body can be mounted on either a Dodge or Ford 10,500-pound GVW chassis, and features an integrated crane structure capable of handling a telescopic crane up to 12,000 foot-pounds.

“The IMT DSC12 line fills a niche for customers who don’t require a full-sized mechanics truck but still need the service and capabilities they offer,” said Steve Fairbanks, IMT president. “There is a growing demand for these new chassis today, and IMT now offers our customers a truly compact option to meet their needs. IMT remains committed to our customers, and the expansion of the DSC12 line demonstrates our dedication to providing customers with innovative products.”

The DSC12 can be equipped with an IMT 3203i electric telescopic crane, which has 3,200 pounds of maximum lift capacity and a maximum 15 feet of horizontal reach. This new body incorporates all the key features of the Dominator lineup that give the operator more mobility around the vehicle and make the truck easier to use, notes IMT. Some of these features include a new floor structure that reduces body weight; a shelf hanger bracket system; side packs for additional storage; and three-point door latches that require less force to operate.

IMT also offers the DSC12S, which is mounted on a Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter chassis. Both the DSC12 and DSC12S packages consume less fuel than a full-sized mechanics body mounted on a traditional Class 4 chassis. This increased fuel economy means the smaller trucks also produce fewer emissions, making the DSC12 and DSC12S more environmentally friendly, according to IMT.
