work ready trucks


When you need a truck now, Drake-Scruggs has work ready trucks. The Auto Crane® Titan 38 body is fitted with an HC-7 NexStar III Service crane. All of that rides on a 2016 Ram 5500 with an interlocking sub-frame. The 11-foot body has a 38,000 foot-pound crane body with 22-inch deep side packs. The packs are made with 10 gauge galvannealed steel.

Space and Storage

The 50-inch wide cargo floor gives you plenty of space to maneuver around the crane and features six integrated tie downs with a 900-pound rating for each tie down. All of the compartments are 46 inches tall, with the exception of the front passenger side compartment, which is 58 inches tall. All compartment door hinges are on the inside and are made of stainless steel to help prevent break-ins. The door latches are compression style T-handled that have keyed locks and rollers on the latch rods. Finally, the truck features a 20-inch work bumper.

Body Options Included with the Work Ready Truck

The body options are designed to make your job easier. The left and right sides include integrated steps with galvanized steel grated to minimize slipping while climbing into the truck. Extra storage in the bumper has latched doors with latch protection. When you have to haul a trailer, do so easily with the included receiver hitch and seven-pin trailer plug.

The light bar on the front of the body, LED work lights and LED interior compartment lights provide extra light for those days when you have to work after dark. Additionally, the brake, turn and tail lights are LED so they are easier seen by traffic behind you.

Additional options include:

  • 36-gallon hydraulic tanks with a sight glass;
  • A master locking system for the side packs;
  • Arctic package;
  • Zolatone on the compartment interiors; and
  • A bed liner on the cargo walls, floor an on the tops of the side packs to prevent scratching and rust.

The included crane has a 7,000-pound lift with a 38,000 foot-pound capacity. It extends to 20 feet and features power hoist, power boom elevation and power rotation. The crane includes 95 feet of 3/8-inch 14,700-pound single line break strength aircraft-quality cable. With 370-degree rotation and elevation from 14 to 75 degrees, this crane will do most jobs. It requires 8 gallons per minute at 2,750 psi for the hydraulics. And, the crane features overload protection for raising, extending and lowering the boom.

The NexStar III Crane Management System includes an LCD receiver and readout on the controller. Additional features include a proportional controller, a pistol grip with thumb-tip-control for all of the crane’s functions and angle detection of the boom and truck. A transmitter cradle is already installed, and the hydraulics have in/out and up/down outriggers with a rear-mounted control.

The air compressor package includes an Auto Crane AC-40 hydraulic air compressor, which is mounted on top of the left side pack, .40 cfm at 100 psi, two 10-gallon air reservoirs mounted under the body of the truck and an air hose reel with 50 feet of ½-inch air hose.
