Zeal Motor, the manufacturer of the Fat Truck, has announced the official production launch of its 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. and amphibious capabilities, the Fat Truck 2.8P answers the market needs of having an amphibious pickup that can carry a high payload. The Fat Truck pickup is available in two versions to suit specific needs: open cab or closed canopy.

“Having a vehicle capable of traveling to speed up to 25 mph, traveling on the water at 3 mph, and climbing steep muddy hills up to 75% of grade with all the safety requirements are some non- negligible advantages the Fat Truck can provide. The footprint of the 2.8P is 1.6 psi at its maximum payload, which is five times less than a human footprint," said Amine Khimjee VP of Sales and Marketing at Zeal Motor.
