We Manufacture a Complete Line of Chipper Bodies

Our Standard series chipper bodies are popular general-purpose models and favorites of residential tree trimmers and arborists alike. They are available in 10, 11 and 12-foot lengths, with and without a pass-through toolbox. These bodies are very well suited to heavy-duty 1-ton cab and chassis trucks that we can also provide if you are looking for a work ready package.

If you do a lot of chipping, and want to avoid frequent trips to the landfill, our Extra Capacity bodies may be just what you are looking for. These bodies are 12" higher than our Standard series and are equipped with a 30" high tailgate for higher cubic capacity. Standard sizes are 14 and 16-foot, and are available with a pass-through toolbox or underbody toolboxes.

Our Multi-Purpose bodies are unique in our industry. They were designed to simplify the conversion to an uncovered chipper using lightweight aluminum roof sections and tool-less pins. The body can be broken down to a post style log body by removing the boltless slide-in side panels, or to a standard flatbed by removing the heavy-duty side posts.

If you do not require all of the features of the Multi-Purpose body, but you need to load from above, our Standard line of bodies is also available with easy off Aluminum roof. The sides and front remain permanently attached and the roof sections can be individually removed with two tool-less pins.

Headquartered in a 45,000-square-foot facility just outside Columbus’ historic German Village, Schodorf Truck Body today operates under the direction of three great-grandsons of company founder Andrew Schodorf. Joe Schodorf, vice president of operations, joins his brother Steve Schodorf, vice president of engineering, and cousin Paul Schodorf vice president of sales, as co-managers of Schodorf Truck Body.
