New IMT Mechanics Truck Increases Fuel Efficiency

Iowa Mold Tooling Co., Garner, Iowa, introduces the new DSC12 mechanics truck, a compact, fuel-efficient addition to the Dominator family of mechanics trucks. Built on a Dodge or Freightliner Sprinter chassis, the DSC12 is the perfect option for customers looking to get maximum fuel economy out of a vehicle that can easily maneuver in tight, urban environments.

“The new IMT DSC12 fills a niche for customers who don’t require a full-sized mechanics truck and who are interested in significant fuel savings,” said Steve Fairbanks, IMT president. “Customers who are trying to save on fuel will welcome the addition of the DSC12 to the IMT lineup. The DSC12 is another example of IMT’s commitment to innovation and customer profitability.”

At 2,150 pounds, the DSC12 unit is the most compact of all the trucks in the Dominator series. The DSC12 body can be mounted on a Dodge or Freightliner Sprinter chassis and burns about half as much fuel as a full-sized mechanics body mounted on a traditional Class 4 chassis. This increased fuel economy means the smaller truck also produces fewer emissions, making the DSC12 more environmentally friendly.

The DSC12 is 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 comfort and mobility around the vehicle and make the truck easier to use, including improved tools and parts access; patented floor structure that reduces body weight; three-point door latches that require less force to operate; single-hand operation on the tailgate; shelf hanger bracket system; side packs designed for greater storage and improved visibility of rear LED taillights.
