Rick Marino owner of Cobra Roll Off Service and a local business leader in the Waste Management Industry needed to replace 3 trucks in his fleet, and desired a unique yet efficient design. He knew exactly what he wanted; a complete hoist mounting system with a jib hoist reinforcement, PTO, controls, tower, heavy duty front bumper with tow point, hydraulic exterior rear ICC bumper assemblies, hydraulic actuated scaling system and a hydraulic articulating tarper assembly. The hook lift is a SL240 Swaploader with 24,000 lb capacity mounted to a new Kenworth T370 truck. Due to the demands of Ricks business, he added heavy duty hitch assemblies with pintle hook options. Finally, we designed and fabricated custom light bars, light boxes, utility baskets with broom and storage compartments, a board storage rack and stainless steel trim. It was Ricks vision to equip his employees with the necessary tools & equipment to get the job done in a time efficient manner yet, he wanted to give his trucks a professional and noticeable appeal while on the road servicing his customers. We wish Cobra continued success, thank them for the opportunity be a part of their vision and look forward to working with them on their next project.
