Ford Transit Conversions – One-Stop Dropside

Make light work of drop-offs with a Transit Dropside

The Dropside is ideal if you want a cost-effective, professional image for your business. It may be easy to drive, but it’s no slouch. Available with Single or Double cab, in FWD or RWD, automatic transmission on FWD models, and with body lengths ranging from 2.9m to 5.3m there’s a model to suit most needs. On L2 350 FWD models, there’s also a choice of Standard or Premium dropside float bodies.

Strong tubular steel headboard

Helps protect the cab and also secures ladders in place when you need to carry them.

Load anchors

Pull-up retention rings sit flush with the load platform when not in use.

Fold-out steps

Enjoy easy load access when the sideboards are lowered.

Ford Transit Conversions – 1-Way Tipper

Make your working day easier with this handy tip

Rugged, powerful and purposeful, the Ford Transit Tipper combines brilliant functionality with clever design and durable construction. Extremely reliable, it can cope with the most adverse site conditions and a wide range of payloads.

Sequenced Hydraulic Body Hold Down

This fully-automatic system will secure the body in its lowered position, without the need for operator attention.

Dual mode hinged tailboard

Both the top-hinged and ‘tip-thru’ operation modes are easily controlled by the side-mounted remote lever.

Tipper controls

The Control Station is conveniently located next to the driver’s seat and houses all the Tipper controls.

Ford Transit Conversions – 3-Way Tipper

Designed to deliver anywhere

The Ford Transit 3-Way Tipper offers you the ultimate in versatility. It can tip left, right and rear, making it especially useful for sites with restricted access. Robust, reliable and flexible, the 3-Way Tipper will be a welcome addition to your company.

Remote wander lead handset

This plugs in to the socket below the driver’s seat to give you assured and easy control when side-tipping.

5-stage chromium plated ram

Mounted in a durable steel gimbal, complete with shock absorbers and electrical limit switches to control the tipping angle.

Dual mode hinged tailboard

Use the side-mounted remote lever for a top-hinged operation, or the pillar latches for a bottom-hinged operation.

Ford Transit Conversions – Luton and Box Van

Packed with features and space for larger loads

The drive-away solution for those who deal with larger loads. The One-Stop Transit Luton / Box Van can handle a competitive payload. Yet it’s light, nimble and durable enough to cope with multi-drop distribution. Innovative restraints secure any load size and there’s an emergency door-override in case the shutter is accidentally closed while someone’s in the load space.

Available in Front Wheel Drive with a choice of manual or automatic transmission or Rear Wheel Drive.

Load Retention Poles

These tough, telescopic retention poles can be easily configured in a number of ways to secure any size of load.

Rear Shutter

The wide-slat shutter rolls up and out of the way for maximum headroom.

Load anchors

Further load security comes from anchor points located in the lower rail.

Ford Transit Conversions – Skeletal Chassis Cab

Make light work of heavy jobs

Skeletal Chassis models are ideal for conversions that require a low floor and walk-through access from the cab. The vehicle is supplied without a cabin back panel and it incorporates interface points on the B-pillars. This is designed to enable the correct fixing of the conversion. And once converted, the new body contributes to the overall rigidity of the complete vehicle. These models are also ideal for conversions that require a low floor; the Skeletal Chassis floor is 633-635mm, compared to a standard Chassis Cab floor which is 736-738mm.

Low chassis floor

A low chassis floor allows easy entry for conversions, removing the need for a tail lift.

Heavy payload

Built with a strong full ladder frame chassis, the vehicle has a substantial payload capacity of up to 2,390kg.

Open-back cab

Allows unrestricted walk-through access from the cab to the load space of the converted vehicle.
