Details Make the Difference.
Arrow Fleetline models include a variety of components and design elements that add convenience while improving operator performance. Examples include the following standard equipment:
A centrally located power distribution center (PDM) is at the core of the system for powering electronic devices onboard.
Arrow also has electrical wiring diagrams for all our lighting systems and chassis interface. The diagrams label each chassis circuit number, location of the splice and when necessary amperage draw and balance of load remaining.
Another “nice touch” on Arrow Fleetline bobtails is drip rails that protect door openings from rain and water runoff. Side and rear compartments feature continuous full length drip rails. A second rail is attached to the hatchback door for added protection from surge during down pours and when door is opened.
DROP PANEL DOORS
Arrow Fleetline models come standard with 2 Drop Panel Doors (one each side) for single axle units and 4 drop panel doors (two each side) for tandem axle units. Other fabricators may include only one compartment on one side only and in some instances, no cabinets whatsoever. Polished stainless steel D-ring handles and slam lock hardware finish the door assemblies.
You ask your Bobtails to work in the harshest environments mother nature can offer. The lighting system is an extremely high priority when it comes to safety and reliability.
Standard LED light fixtures draw minimal amperage and illuminate brighter than incandescent lamps. Wires are molded into a PVC jacketed harness and plug-in connections at each junction are sealed with shrink tube for superior protection from the elements.
Standard lighting components include high mount LED stop and turn lamps as extra measure of safety to warn following vehicles of your intended travel. This is especially helpful when making left handed turns on roads with 2-way traffic (opposing lanes).
Stadium type work lights cast a combined 200 watts of power to provide excellent visibility darkness. Additional assistance is provided via dual 50 watt docking lights mounted outside rear cabinet with 55° projection angle.
The hose reel is equipped with a GuideMaster hose roller, ultra low temp hose with hose end swivel and quick acting delivery end valve. Additionally, the hose reel is mounted to the deck between rubber isolation blocks to improve cleanliness.
TANK FABRICATION (IPD)
The secret to our success begins with vessel fabrication that features internal pump discharge (IPD) and internal bypass piping if desired. Most notable benefits are improved safety, cleaner installations, and excellent corrosion protection. Future chassis remounts are simple due to minimal exterior piping.
To enhance flow the pump discharge/re-entry piping is accomplished using a single piece of die formed pipe. Flanged connections are used throughout to improve safety, serviceability, and minimize leaks. Smooth bends enhance flow and reduce the equivalent length of pipe by 70% when compared to threaded elbows. Lastly, we use 2” piping all the way from pump to hose reel inlet to take full advantage of volume.
Volume + Unrestricted Flow = Top Performance & Longevity
