After speaking to the fire service it became clear that they had a requirement for a small, rapid response vehicle that could get to fires quickly to assess and gather information and put out smaller fires where possible. The absence of such a vehicle meant that standard fire engineers were sent out as standard to all fires, proving an inefficient use of resources.
The SUV 600 offers an up to date, capable, efficient and cost-effective solution to operators of specialist and utility vehicle fleets who have a specific requirement that cannot be met by existing off-the-shelf utility vehicles.
- Large payload
The additional third axle increases the payload capacity and the physical space on offer to allow heavier and larger systems to be fitted, in order to broaden the usability of the vehicle. The vehicle can carry 500lts of water (enough to fight 15 minutes of fire). This can be upgraded to 1000ltrs if required. It has excellent power to weight ratios and can carry a full crew of 4 people.
- Excellent Roadhandling
Operators will benefit from the delivery of a modern automotive base platform, providing ride and handling commensurate with today’s demands whilst gaining the capability and flexibility not currently present across the market place, at this size and weight.
- More Efficient Response
Having a smaller, faster, more agile platform allows for more efficient allocation of resources.
SC Innovation are currently developing other variants of the SUV 600 to meet emerging requirements in other emergency services and alternative sectors.
