Body Chassis

The chassis of a HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) refers to the main structural frame of the vehicle. It serves as the foundation for all the other components such as the engine, cab, axles, and suspension system. The chassis is responsible for supporting the weight of the vehicle and its load, and for transferring the power from the engine to the wheels.

The chassis of an HGV can be made of different materials such as steel, aluminum, or a combination of both. It typically consists of a ladder frame, with longitudinally-oriented beams running along the length of the vehicle and cross-members connecting the beams. The cab and engine are usually mounted on the front of the chassis, while the axles and suspension system are attached to the rear.

The chassis of an HGV is designed to withstand the heavy loads and long-distance travel required of the vehicle. It must also be able to handle the stresses of turning and braking, as well as the rough terrain that HGVs may encounter on the road.
