RWB Dump Bodies

Designed to Resist Carry Back. Engineered to Increase Payload.

Our Ground Force RWB Dump Bodies are engineered to increase your mine production and bottom line profitability. The Ground Force Right Weight Bodies (RWB) are custom-designed, engineered, and built at the “Right Weight” for your specific mining application.

Our innovative overlap design (patent pending) allows us to deliver a stronger dump body built with less material to MAXIMIZE PAYLOAD. The elliptical shape of our Ground Force RWB Dump Bodies RESISTS CARRY BACK, reduces tire wear and fuel costs, and provides a safer loading process. All of our bodies go through FEA ANALYSIS to ensure strength, durability and longevity.

We know every mine site is different so we custom engineer to meet your application requirements.

We factor in many critical aspects, from material to wear patterns and much more – all so we can deliver the perfect dump body for your application. We engage a third-party engineering consulting firm to perform an independent analysis of our dump beds design. Using a combination of traditional engineering analysis and finite element analysis, the designs are evaluated for several cases encountered during operations. Simulations of both normal operating conditions and abnormal conditions in which failure may occur allowed the engineering team to optimize the design for strength, life, and weight.

Your Target Volume

  • Based on mine target in relation to material density

Custom Free Board

  • Designed to capture volumetric capacity for various materials (overburden, ore, coal)
  • Mine-specific for matching loading tools
  • Zero spill rock during transport = less cleanup

PATENT PENDING

Flexible Canopy Length

  • Specific for shop clearance while offering cover to required areas

Dump Tail Height

  • Proper dump ground clearance, dumping over a berm or in a hopper

Our innovative overlap bed design gives you more payload and increased performance.

We do this by designing a dump body that’s not only strong and durable, but with less weight leaving more room for your material. Our elliptical design resists carry back and offers a safe and fast loading process as well as a quick release at dump. Our patent pending design is mine-site proven and offers many benefits over the industry standard.

Lightweight

  • Proven 20%-40% reduction in body weight as compared to other OEM bodies

Increased Payload

  • Lighter body offers more payload

Reduced Carryback

  • Semi-elliptical patent pending design resists carry back

Centered Load

  • Elliptical shape navigates material to the center upon load
  • Design offers diminished movement when loading

Decreased Cycle Times

  • Lighter body translates to quicker return times
  • Quick material release at dump = less cleanup

Reduced Tire Wear

  • Less weight on return trips saves tire wear

Reduced Fuel Consumption

  • Lighter body weight renders decreased fuel consumption

Ground Force Dump Bodies are constructed entirely of Hardox® and Strenx® Steel.

We choose placement of these key materials based on your wear patterns to maximize performance of your Ground Force Dump Body. The strong and durable SSAB materials combined with our cutting-edge overlap, elliptical shape allow us to deliver a stronger dump body built with less material, so you gain productivity and bottom line profitability.

We engaged a third-party engineering consulting firm to perform an independent analysis of the design of our dump beds. Using a combination of traditional engineering analysis and finite element analysis, the design is evaluated for a variety of potential scenarios encountered during operations.  Simulations of both normal operating conditions and abnormal conditions in which failure may occur allow the engineering team to optimize the design for strength, life, and weight. All this allows us to deliver a body with maximum strength, yet lightweight to allow for the highest payload.

Strength

  • Body constructed of Hardox® 450 and 500
  • Elliptical overlap design is stronger and often lighter than standard OEM bodies

PATENT PENDING

Toughness

  • Hardox® 550 for heavy wear areas
  • Sub-frame and bolsters constructed of Strenx® 700

Our Engineering Team analyzes your wear patterns to determine a liner package that best suits your body program.

Custom Liner packages are available with all our bodies. Our engineering department will work with you to ensure we have the most optimal liners in your body for your application. We study your wear patterns and design a liner program to suit those needs.

Ground Force Worldwide can provide you with many common options as well, such as rock ejector brackets, tail gates, safety latches, grease lines, light boxes, and fleet numbers.

Liner Packages

  • Designed to absorb impact and protect body structure
  • Unique lamination process for optimal longevity
  • Tailored to offer maximum wear protection with the least amount of weight
  • Custom liner packages available to meet your application
