New Skid Plate Design
Patriot Marine Fabricators has completed the design for the skid plate on the new F-350 brush trucks. They decided to go with a full belly pan type skid plate due to the amount of emissions hoses, tanks and very expensive exhaust components. The design allows for air circulation around the components while still protecting them from impact damage and getting caught on tree stumps. The smooth under surface should help prevent the truck from getting hung up on stumps and rocks.
