OVERLOADED FLEET VEHICLE SOLUTIONS
Six Wheeler Conversions says it has the answer to this common problem
In recent years, there has been an increasing number of fleet and service vehicles on the roads, particularly in the recreational market.
One concern that many of these vehicle operators have in common is overloading.
A number of fleet and service vehicles with trays and canopies have reached their weight capacity even before the vehicles are loaded with people, fuel, tools, and other accessories.
Depending on the vehicle, this can be the case even after the standard 300kg GVM upgrades have been fitted. When fleet and service vehicles require loads to complete their daily tasks, overloading becomes all too common.
However, an overloaded vehicle is not only a safety concern but also a violation of the law. It can lead to considerable fines for the driver and company and can also void any insurance policies.
The operators of these vehicles are taking a risk every time they pull onto the highway and Six Wheeler Conversions says it offers a solution that will help operators avoid this unnecessary risk.
The company provides GVM upgrades on a range of standard utes that will ensure the vehicles are safe and compliant. It can be applied to vehicles with a wide range of carrying and towing applications.
The conversion typically increases usable payloads up to 1.8 tonnes with GVMs of 4,495Kg, providing a more comfortable, user-friendly drive.
The company says this payload increase is often close to one tonne above the base vehicle’s specifications. It also retains the OEM vehicle’s original safety systems and car handling characteristics.
Six Wheeler Conversions say its builds increase payloads, increase load space with larger trays, and improve vehicle ride, stability, and performance.
It says this investment will ultimately save businesses money while making drivers safer with vehicles that comply with the law.
All of the conversions are fully compliant with Six Wheeler’s federally certified Second Stage Manufacturer approvals on a range of vehicles. These include the Toyota Landcruiser 70 series, Toyota Landcruiser 200 series, Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, Mazda BT50, VW Amarok, and Isuzu Dmax.
