Body and trailer manufacturer Cartwright has launched a 3.5 tonne urban delivery vehicle based on its Cheetah body design, incorporating a lightweight door which acts as a tail lift.
Known as the Cub, the vehicle includes a rear door loading and unloading feature that converts into a ramp and replaces the need for a tail lift.
The Rampdoor is manufactured from lightweight materials and has a slip resistant surface for safety. It is lighter than a tail lift by about 80 kilos, and is suitable for loading trolleys and cages
The 3.5 tonne chassis has over a one tonne payload. The design includes a new aerodynamic front mould, side collars and bodywork. It can also be based upon a 3.5 to 5.5 tonne vehicle design.
