New Performer body caters to cleaning and restoration industry

Washington, NC, May 7, 2015 – Hackney Performer bodies have been a mainstay in the plumbing, electrical, and HVAC markets for over 15 years, but the all-aluminum work truck will now make its presence in the cleaning and restoration industry.  At this week’s RIA International Restoration Convention and Industry Expo in Las Vegas, Hackney unveiled the new Performer customized with shelving and side door compartments tailored to meet operator requirements and increase job site efficiency. 

“Our restoration body was designed by operators,” says Richard Ball, Director of Marketing and Business Development for VT Hackney.  “Hackney bodies have a history of delivering value to our customers by maximizing the storage and efficiency inside, while providing a durable aluminum body that is re-mountable and can serve over 20 years.”

Hackney’s custom shelving organizes equipment such as air movers, humidifiers, and extractors, while providing additional storage for tools and bin trays.  The base model features a 90 gallon tank.  The swing out curbside door provides quick access to vacuum, airline, and water hose reels.  Additional options such as a driver side service compartment and rear pull-out ramp are also available.  The Performer features smooth side walls for graphics to provide a great outlet for advertising.  For more information on the Cleaning and Restoration Hackney Performer, please visit
