We build the car. We build the engine. None of the competition can say that. Our tough, reliable low-emission 357cc engine produces 8.5kW of muscle and is the most fuel efficient in the industry. And thanks to a splash-style positive lubrication system, the need for an oil pump and oil filters has been eliminated.

Headlights and tail lights

We use an automotive-style, coil-over-shock strut suspension that minimises roll and delivers a smooth, comfortable ride. That means extra heavy-duty performance, front and rear.

With a 535 litre, 363kg payload capacity, pneumatic-assist tilting, fold & lock tailgate, and roto-molded linear polyethylene construction, the dump bed is where the hard work gets done.

HybriCore™ chassis

How do you make a chassis nearly 20% lighter and 2.5 times stronger? We combined an automotive, ladder-style, 100% robotically welded steel frame – protected by an 18-step paint process – to a polypropylene structural floor. It’s unique design provides added strength.

Energy-absorbing bumper

The extra-thick 8km/h-rated bumper is designed to protect the body and frame, releasing air upon impact. The textured surface minimises scratches and scuffs, and if you need to replace the bumper, simply loosening two bolts does the job.
