The Hercules is lighter, stronger, more durable, requires less maintenance and can carry more dirt than the rest. The curved design reduces stress throughout the dump body, enabling us to go thinner and lighter while maintaining structural integrity.
Hardox® wear-resistant steel means your Hercules HX is even lighter, so you can carry more payload each trip. You'll also see an improvement in fuel economy and be able to increase the legal truck payload, or even choose to downsize to a smaller model of haul truck.
Every Hercules HX carries the certified Hardox® In My Body mark, which is your guarantee that your Hercules HX is manufactured using Hardox® wear plate and not an inferior imitation.
