The Tuff Truck Bag is a cargo bag that can protect luggage, equipment, and cargo. It’s depicted as “tuff” because it’s waterproof and dustproof.

The bags are sized to fit both full-size and mid-size pickup truck beds. Dimensions include 40 inches wide by 50 inches long by 22 inches high. Available in tan and black, each bag holds 26 to 30 cubic feet of storage space.

Made from waterproof, non-breathable PVC, each bag is sealed with high temp, heat fusion weld seam. For weather protection, there is a triple-fold zipper cover. Four straps and a storage tote bag are also included with each bag.

In addition to recreational use, the bag could be used to haul seed, transport fertilizer, move hay, or anything else you need to transport and want to keep clean and dry.

A truck bag retails for $200.

Buyers Products, a provider of work truck accessories and snow and ice management equipment, introduces the new Slide Out Truck Bed Box line that’s specifically engineered for truck beds.

The new slide out truck bed boxes fit comfortably in truck beds for easy access to tools, according to the company.

With a smooth aluminum construction and a rain-gutter design, these toolboxes provide year-round durability and protection. A push-button locking latch releases the drawer, which automatically locks in position every 8 inches to control drawer motion.

Movable partitions and dividers provide configurability for a range of tools and hardware.

“We really wanted to focus on a design that provided a lightweight framework with an industry-leading weight capacity,” said Scott Kalanish, senior project engineer at Buyers Products.

The truck bed boxes are offered in various sizes to fit any work truck model.

The all-new Venturo VC100 van crane is designed for the Ford Transit and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter models. The crane has a maximum weight capacity of 1,000 pounds and can reach 6 feet.

This new crane was created by Venco Venturo Industries, a manufacturer of truck-mounted cranes, crane bodies, and hoists.

To ensure structural reliability, the crane uses a dual floor and ceiling mounted telescopic mast. The mast allows the crane to fit in the Transit mid- and high-roof as well as the Sprinter standard- and high-roof models.

Additionally, the crane includes two rotation control features for the primary and secondary booms, which use two hand levers to operate multi-positional locks.

The VC100 provides safe cargo handling without needing a forklift or a lift gate, according to the company.

Venturo also offers side-door mounts or rear-door mounts for cargo vans.
