To show the scope of vehicle personalisation now available on its vehicles, Isuzu has premiered two newly-converted D-Max pick-ups at the 2014 CV Show: the D-Max BRV and D-Max MEWP cherry-picker.
Converted by Pickup Systems, Isuzu claims that the D-Max BRV, or Brigade Response Vehicle, can respond to up to 90% of all fire and rescue 999 calls. The bespoke pick-up is fitted with a 310 litre water tank, 3.5 bar water pump and 55 metre hosepipe to help fight fires. It also includes inbuilt equipment lockers, strip lighting and LED spot lamps as well as a controller for sirens and a public announcement system.
The D-Max MEWP cherry-picker, which was converted by Cumberland Platforms UK, features a work platform attached to a telescopic boom developed specifically for the utility and arborist industries. The boom rotates 360 degrees, can reach a working height of 13.2 metres and has an outreach of 6.5 metres. Its aluminium or reinforced plastic basket has a capacity of 225kg; enough to cope with two workers and their equipment.
William Brown, General Manager, said, “Vehicle conversions are more popular than ever 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.
Isuzu’s range of D-Max pick-ups can be found at the CV Show on stand 5F60.
