Dodge Medium-Tonnage Tilt Cab & Heavy-Duty Tilt Cab

Dodge Medium-Tonnage Tilt Cab

   This is the truck that answers the question: How would truck users and buyers design a tilt if they could be in on its planning from the start? Many of its basic design factors were actually checked out with owners, drivers, and mechanics across the country. The result is a strong, quiet, cool cab with remarkable maneuverability. Access for servicing is total ; you can get at every system easily. And the price invites comparison. For the features it offers, the Dodge medium-tonnage tilt cab has just about the lowest price in its field. The two models (L600 and L700) cover GVW's from 17,000 to 27,500 lbs. The L600 is offered with gasoline power, while the L700 can be equipped with either gasoline or diesel.

Ideas that work

    The Dodge medium-tonnage tilt cab was designed to incorporate the best ideas proposed by truckers and engineers ; here are a few examples. The truck is capable of a 50° wheel turn angle. This, added to the cab’s shortness and some special steering refinements, makes it exceptionally maneuverable and one of the easiest trucks to steer. Proof of its maneuverability : the 89" wb tractor pulling a 40' semi can U-turn in 41'10". Critical areas of this all-welded cab are galvanized to protect against rust and corrosion. The engine, clutch, and transmission are all readily accessible because the cab tilts a full 45° (with one-handed ease). And routine servicing can be done without tilting the cab...for items like water and oil. High-level ventilation, variable-rate suspension, and heavy-duty electrical system are all standard.

Standard Equipment

    Full-foam bucket driver’s seat with vinyl upholstery and seat belt Left and right armrests Dual long-arm mirrors Driver-adjustable hand brake Padded left sun visor Fresh Air heater/defroster Coat hook Rubber mat on cab floor Front and rear grab handles Love box with door Ashtray Dual dome lights Push-button door locks Variable-speed electric windshield wipers Windshield washers Options for the cab include : one full-foam passenger bucket seat and one center auxiliary seat, padded right sun visor, cigar lighter, rear corner windows, and tinted windshield and windows.

Cummins Diesel For Dodge Tilts

If your medium-tonnage tilts spend most of their time on short runs with a lot of idling included, you may want to consider equipping them with a Cummins diesel engine. It has the traditional staying power and long life characteristics of diesels. And Dodge offers it as a factory-installed option designed to save you money on installation first, then on any high idling operation.

Dodge Heavy-Duty Tilt Cab   

   First offered in the mid-60's, the Heavy-Duty Tilt cab offered by Dodge was designed to be their first major long haul truck. As an ad for the truck says, For Any Road...And Any Load.  The Cabover was offered with three different cab options, the first, a non-sleeper short-cab model, the other two, a 24" and 36" sleeper models. The links below are for several different years of the heavy-duty tilt cabs.
