Vauxhall And VFS Collaborate On New Caged Tipper
LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM – nov 30, 2012: Vauxhall has partnered with commercial vehicle conversion specialist VFS to produce a new Movano Caged Tipper. The latest conversions are available as a purpose-designed cage for the existing Movano Tipper core conversion, or a custom-built VFS caged tipper based on a Movano chassis cab. A utility cab conversion based on the Movano double cab is also available to provide even greater versatility.
The cage is two metres high with a galvanised mesh and rear doors that open to 270 degrees. The vehicle includes a full height sliding door and a rear header bar with marker lamps for optimum visibility. The assembly is painted in dark grey to match the original tipper body structure, while all handles, latches and door retainers are highlighted in ‘traffic’ yellow.
The tail-lift features a folding aluminium platform and the external controls are mounted within a dustproof and waterproof enclosure, while an instrument panel and operation instruction signage are all included.
The cage is available on Vauxhall core conversion tippers or alternatively a custom-built VFS caged tipper is available on Movano chassis or crew cabs.
“The Movano Caged Tipper is the ideal vehicle for a wide range of trades and public services, including waste and scrap collection and construction,” said Steve Bryant, Brand Manager, Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles. “It offers customers the flexibility to easily load and carry different payloads, while the cage provides excellent space and security.”
The cage is available from £1,560 + VAT and the tail-lift is available from £2,480 + VAT. Prices for specific custom builds are available from VFS on request.
