Utility Vehicles

In many places all around the world, utility vehicles have become a staple for many businesses such as landscapers, contractors, painters, and other fields which require one to carry their equipment with them from one job to another. They offer a convenient means of transporting various items such as ladders comma, compressors, pipes, hoses, and a variety of other things, when they are needed for the work being performed. There are a range of accessories especially designed to enhance the functionality of these trucks.

The versatility of these vehicles is part of what makes them so attractive for contractors and individuals such as farmers, who need a way to transport their professional equipment. Fitting the truck with specialized utilities can increase the amount of usable space in the most efficient manner. These items permit one to customize the vehicle to their own unique needs and specifications.

The first item most people will purchase is a tray. This goes in the area formerly occupied by the bed of a pickup, and serves as the cargo transport surface. It differs from the traditional in that it sits above the wheel well, which makes taking equipment on and off easier by eliminating the need for bending and reaching, and provides an opportunity to add more customization for storage.

If the individual prefers, they can add drop-down sides and a tailgate to the tray to keep things inside the storage area. Steps may also be installed either along the sides, or at the rear of the vehicle. They are easily pulled down when one needs to step up into the tray, and conveniently fold up to be stored when not in use.

Another item that many people choose to have installed on the tray are tie-down hooks. These can be placed in specific locations along the edges, or they may be in the form of rails that run the full length of the bed, allowing for more versatility in where the ropes and straps may be secured. Articles of this type are very useful in preventing equipment and other cargo from sliding around during transport.

Ladder racks are yet another very common accessory chosen by individuals who use utility vehicles regularly. These custom fit items are installed directly to the tray and allow for over-sized equipment, such as pipes and tubes, to be carried above the cab of the truck. This practically doubles the amount of cargo space available.
