Isuzu UK has expanded its offerings for businesses through conversion kits for its Isuzu D-Max pick-ups.
To illustrate the types of conversion available, it is displaying two newly-converted D-Max pick-ups at the 2014 Commercial Vehicle Show to demonstrate the potential for individual businesses to personalise the pick-up to meet their specific needs.
William Brown, general manager, said: “Vehicle conversions are more popular than ever before as businesses and public-sector organisations increasingly require task-specific vehicles that better fit their working environment and needs.
“The Isuzu D-Max is the perfect base vehicle for many of the most demanding conversions, as its rugged chassis and class-leading towing capacity means it can accommodate a variety of specialist adaptations. We will introduce a number of further conversion options to meet an even broader range of business customers.”
The Isuzu D-Max Brigade Response Vehicle (BRV), converted by Pickup Systems, is developed to complement the fleet of vehicles already operated by fire and rescue services across the UK. The flexible platform, four-occupant cabin and high-capacity water tanks mean the Isuzu D-Max BRV is capable of dealing with up to 90% of all 999 calls requiring the fire or rescue services.
The Isuzu D-Max mobile elevating working platform (MEWP) – also known as a ‘cherry-picker’ – converted by Cumberland Platforms UK, is a work platform attached to a telescopic boom developed specifically for the utility and arborist industries.
