First responders have expanded options with new UTV/skid unit combination
November 30, 2015 - Orleans, VT –– In its new expansion into side-by-side utility vehicles, Gravely/Ariens Company has introduced the 2015 Gravely Atlas, a new UTV model that readily accommodates the Kimtek MEDLITE® and FIRELITE® Transport skid units. The Atlas JSV-3000 and JSV-6000 crew gas and diesel model UTVs each have a cargo bed capacity of an astounding 1,250 pounds, allowing enough capacity to carry any of the nine UTV skid units KIMTEK currently offers.
With its modular, slide-in design and numerous adaptability features, Kimtek's MEDLITE and FIRELITE Transport skid units can be installed in the Gravely Atlas cargo bed in just minutes. The MEDLITE and FIRELITE's included tie-down system attaches to the Atlas' integrated tie-downs already located in the cargo bed for fast, simple installation. With MEDLITES offering a place for an attendant and a patient and the FIRELITES offering up to 85 gallons of water and patient transport area, these combinations give first responders a powerful tool for off-road fire and rescue, wildland search and rescue, large event response, lifeguard operations, industrial fire and medical response, and many more field applications for police, fire, and EMS response agencies.
