What Makes ‘em Tough


Forestry Hook N’ Go

Royal Truck & Equipment knows a thing or two about trucks. We design and manufacture our own bodies, buy and completely overhaul each truck that goes out the door, and do a great deal of hydraulic work. What does all this experience give you? Some awesome hooklift builds! Hooklift trucks are becoming the preferred choice for the refuse, safety, forestry and landscape industry because of their versatility. They allow you to completely repurpose a truck. When we build our hooklift bodies, we don’t just take a standard body and slap some rails on it to make it “hooklift ready”. We completely design the body to the specifications and geometry of the frame, the capacity of the axles and the hoist we will be using. Doing this ensures that the body will always preform perfectly and that there’ll be no imbalance or safety concerns with the integrity of the truck, hoist, frame or body.

Royal’s forestry bodies are known for being the toughest in the industry. Some may argue that we go overboard with our designs, but we argue that we don’t settle for anything less then perfection. From our HD steel bodies including angled gussets for extra strength to prevent bending or denting of the sides of the body, HD removable lids for easy accesses and the ability to load larger loads, to our super HD steel barn style doors and heavy duty hoists, we build our trucks knowing that they will be worked hard and by some of the best in the industry. A lot of thought and engineering goes into each truck so you are able to be on the job longer with the best results possible!
