SportChassis – Exclusive to Johnston Sweepers
With design features intended to maximize safety and comfort, while minimizing driver fatigue, the SportChassis DualSteer was created for Johnston Sweepers to be the safest, most ergonomic vehicle conversion platform to pair with the best sweeper on the world market.
Safety and comfort. Just two words, but more than that; two concepts that drove the design elements of the DualSteer. When looking at the conversion process, it wasn’t enough just to “piggyback” parts to existing OEM components and hope for the best.
The precise placement of driver controls, the attention to maintaining identical seating positions, full leg and headroom, completely independent steering components – from the steering wheel to the axle, and intuitive accessory controls were just a few of the well thought out considerations.
The function is all-important in a work truck, but the style is nice too. Interior conversion components, manufactured by Salient Designs, a SportChassis company, complete the look of the interior, giving a seamless look to the dash. A vinyl covered center console top with integral cupholders comes standard. Custom door panels with door speakers are available.
Built at the SportChassis OEM vehicle manufacturing facility
The DualSteer is built at the SportChassis OEM vehicle manufacturing facility on a Freightliner M2106, and comes standard with independent left and right-side driving positions.
Both positions are equipped with separate steering wheels, steering shafts, steering gears, and steering linkages. Each driver position has been designed to work independently of the other and is selectable with the flip of a switch. It is a proper left-hand drive and a proper right-hand drive in one package. Built with OEM components, most of which are available from your local Freightliner dealer.
The steering wheel, brake pedal, accelerator, wiper, and turn signal controls are virtually identical in both positions on the DualSteer.
When the reaction time is all you have, identical driver controls make muscle memory all you need to avoid accidents.
Behind the wheel of the DualSteer, left or right, it doesn’t matter if you’re tall or short, big or small. With full leg and headroom, adjustable – tilt steering wheel, and air-ride seating, everyone is comfortable. More operator comfort and ergonomics equal less stress and healthier, happier drivers.
With a driving position designed to maximize ergonomics, ease of use and driver safety, the choice is easy. See your Johnston Sweepers dealer to test drive the new DualSteer today, and see the SportsChassis advantage for yourself.
