Donovan® Brand FLASH™ Tarping Systems

Condition: Build to Order
Make: Donovan

The Flash™ is the toughest dump body covering system on the planet, engineered for both durability and superior safety. The spring assembly features five per side to ensure loads are secure. An exclusive extra-strong stamped-steel spring enclosure, dubbed “the clamshell” for its impressive closing capabilities, protects the springs from rocks, mud and debris. A two-part stamping process eliminates welds and contributes to a more indestructible product, and the heavy-duty Grade 8 spring pin will not break. Models marked “UB” are designed with 22-coil underbody spring assemblies.

Pivot arms are thick-walled and guaranteed unbreakable. The professional, high-polish zinc protective coating protects the system from corrosive environments. Optional 30° arms are bent with a specially-made die in a one-piece design, for optimum structural integrity. Die-cast 90° aluminum elbows at rear cross piece match arm shape and enhance arm strength. An upper bolt slot simplifies arm installation.

The dependable Durabuilt™ 12V direct-drive electric motor has an in-cab rotary switch for operator convenience. (The motor comes with a three-year full replacement warranty.) Optional upgrades include 40-amp Durabuilt™ rocker switch kit with solenoid, wind deflectors, pivot arm rests and spring trap and tarp trap hold-downs. Approximate shipping weight: 225 lbs.

When pricing your Flash™ system, you will need to order your choice of tarp and add that to the price. Choose from heavy-duty mesh, multicolored PVC mesh, 18-oz. vinyl or asphalt lumite.
