Any structure is only as good as the framework. Bull Head Products uses Only 6061 T-6 Heavy Duty structural channels or I-Beams. In some cases 6061 square or rectangular tubing is used.
Things we would NEVER sell:
Our Standard Heavy Duty Bed is perfect for most trucks. It can handle general purpose work such as farming, towing a gooseneck trailer, light to medium-heavy industrial, and many other applications. It is built Heavier than anything on the market in it's class. Extra Heavy Duty Upgrades are available!
Our Welders are Certified. They all have been trained in all the different processes. Our beds and accessories are welded using both MIG and TIG Process. We Do Not Spot Weld our Beds Together! No Weld is shorter than 3" long except where the material being welded is shorter such as the frame channels which are only 1.5" wide. Even this will get welded on all four sides.
For more strength and durability our Extra Heavy Duty Beds are the way to go. They are built with a heavier frame and floor plate. We recommend these beds for Heavy Industrial Use, Brush Trucks, Crane Trucks, Dump Trucks, and any other Heavy Duty Commercial Applications. If even more strength is needed, we can build the bed with extra gusset supports, reinforcement plates, I-Beams, etc.
Some manufacturers measure the diamond tread plus the plate to arrive at a “false” thickness (i.e. 1/8” plate + the diamond = 3/16” — thus giving a false measurement)
To check this, just raise the trap door and look at the floor thickness.
BULL HEAD BEDS HAVE A TRUE THICKNESS – 1/8”, 3/16”, 1/4”, 3/8” ARE TRUE THICKNESSES.
