Fat Truck® introduces its new amphibious pickup model for the utility industry

Zeal Motor Inc. the manufacturer of the famous FAT TRUCK® is proud to announce the  official production launch of its new FAT TRUCK® pickup version 2.8P. The 2.8P was designed to answer the specific market need to  transport material and tools to the job site. The Utility industry was requiring an amphibious vehicle to bring payload through harsh  conditions with the occupants separated from the payload. The 2.8P redefines the operations on the job site with improve safety  standards and productivity level while bringing material to the grid.  

The Pickup model of the FAT TRUCK® will be used by the Utility industry as a new type of vehicle to facilitate working in hard-to-reach jobsites.  Furthermore, the wide variety of options available such as the high-speed  capstan, vegetation control spraying unit, water tank, firefighting foam kit  and small service crane for recovery after a storm make the new 2.8P a highly  versatile tool.  

With a payload of 2200 lb (1000 kg) and amphibious capabilities, the FAT  TRUCK® 2.8P answers the market needs of having an amphibious pickup that  can carry a high payload. This new FAT TRUCK® pickup is available in two  versions to suit your specific need: open cab or closed canopy. “The pickup  version of the FAT TRUCK® is a great addition to a fleet for all jobsites. Having  a vehicle capable of traveling to speed up to 25 Mph (40 kph), traveling on the water at 3 Mph (5Kph) and climbing steep muddy hills up to 75% of grade  with all the safety requirements are some non negligible advantages that only  the Fat Truck® can provide. The footprint of the 2.8P is 1.6 psi at its maximum payload, which is 5 times less than a human footprint. These are the reasons why the 2.8P can go everywhere.” Says Amine Khimjee  Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at Zeal Motor.  

The Fat Truck®2.8P first public appearance will be at the Utility Expo in Louisville Kentucky in booth N1819 from September 28th to  September 30th.
