Vauxhall and VFS launch caged tipper LCV conversion 29 November 2012

A Movano caged tipper has been designed and built, following a joint development between vehicle manufacturer Vauxhall and conversion outfit VFS.

The latest conversion is 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 now available.

The cage is 2m high and boasts a galvanised mesh and rear doors that open to 270°. 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.

A folding aluminium platform features on the tail-lift, the external controls being mounted within a dustproof and waterproof enclosure, while an instrument panel and operasting signage are all included.

"The Movano Caged Tipper is the ideal vehicle for a wide range of trades and public services, including waste and scrap collection and construction," says 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," he adds.

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.
