Utilimaster, a Spartan Motors brand, showcased its utility walk-in van at the Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference earlier this month. The 14-foot Utilimaster walk-in van, is built on a Ford F-59 commercial chassis with a Kubota gas generator, and designed for Hawaiian Electric Company.
“Working closely with our customers through our Work-Driven Design process enables a better understanding of their drivers, technicians, and the mission, which helps them more efficiently tackle the job at hand,” said Chad Heminover, president, Spartan Fleet Vehicles and Services.
The utility service walk-in van is a workshop on wheels, with auxiliary power, interior and exterior storage, warning and working lighting, and specialty equipment to accommodate third-party accessories. Made from lightweight aluminum, the van provides maximum versatility and interior design accents with a highly modular cargo area and multiple side and rear door configurations.
Utilimaster's dedicated utility service sales and engineering team was onsite at the EUFMC show to demonstrate the latest advancements in utility service vehicles and educate visitors on Utilimaster products as well as the unique ways to enable the specialty service market.
