Many troublesome areas exist in the public utility industry with regard to trucks bodies and equipment. The problems presented are a result of a survey conducted by the author; they include: inadequate space for mounting PTO's on Allison MT-40 transmissions; gearshift linkage trouble; poor accessibility to engine components, battery, radiator, and so forth; lack of space on dual wheel units for tire chains; and inadequate capacity gas tanks; to name a few. The material is presented with the hopes of creating a better understanding between the public utility, the truck manufacturer, and the body or equipment manufacturer.
