Jerr-Dan Corporation, an Oshkosh Corporation [NYSE: OSK] company, announced that it has received an order for 14 vehicles –12 Jerr-Dan HPL-3560 standard-duty wreckers and two Jerr-Dan MDL 320 medium-duty wreckers—from the Vietnam Ministry of Public Security, Police Department ordered the trucks.
The vehicles will be delivered and placed into service in Hanoi this fall.
The HPL-3560 steel wrecker bodies will be mounted on Ford F-550 chassis. The wreckers feature a self-contained recovery boom with capacities from 4 to 12 tons, and an extended underlift with 3,500 lbs of capacity. The units also offer dual manual wheel lift controls and a six-function hydraulic wheel lift system for easier vehicle loading.
The MDL 320 medium-duty wrecker bodies will be mounted on Hino chassis. The lightweight, composite body resists stress cracks and never rusts. With its long underlift and negative tilt crossbar, the MDL 320 allows for easier reach, especially when making downhill recoveries. The underreach and boom are mounted to the chassis subframe to transfer forces away from the body, reducing wear.
“This order from the Vietnam Ministry of Public Security is testament to the strength of our products,” said Wilson Jones, Oshkosh Corporation executive vice president, Fire & Emergency and interim president of Jerr-Dan Corporation. “We continue to make inroads throughout Southeast Asia with sales such as these.”
