The new Fat Truck 2.8P amphibious pickup delivers where most can’t

Zeal Motor, the manufacturer of Fat Truck, announces the official production launch of its new Fat Truck pickup version 2.8P.

Often, within the utilities industry, job sites require an amphibious vehicle for transporting material or tools through harsh conditions. Also, it is often necessary—or necessary— to keep the vehicle’s occupants separate from the payload.

So, Fat Truck hopes that the 2.8P pickup model will be put to use in this industry as the answer to this need, facilitating the work at hard-to-reach job sites.

Furthermore, there are a variety of options available. A high-speed capstan, vegetation control spraying unit, water tank, firefighting foam kit and small service crane are all available as add-ons.

The Fat Truck 2.8P offers a payload capacity of 1000 kg (2200 lb). Also, is available in two different cab styles—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.
