ProMAX AL-KO Chassis Vs Standard Platform Chassis
The standard type RWD (Rear Wheel Drive) Luton van has been in production since the early 1900’s when motorised commercial vehicle transport began. The chassis design and limitations have remained almost the same, even today, the same leaf spring suspension system is used on standard type Luton van and FWD (Front Wheel Drive) low floor platform chassis conversions. Only the Maxi mover ProMAX range uses the latest advanced independent torsion bar suspension.
Evolution & Development
The many limitations of standard Luton vans have been overcome with the introduction of the low floor chassis. Today low floor Luton vans are becoming a popular option as seen on the UK roads, the new preferred choice for many of todays transport and logistics companies. Low floor Luton vans still have a number of limitations, however the Maxi Mover ProMAX range has continued to evolve ensuring that all our vans deliver Maximum Payload, Maximum Volume, Maximum Savings & Maximum Efficiency.
The low floor Luton van does not require a tail lift (although Maxi Mover do offer tail lift options) nor the continual expense of maintenance and LOLER testing as needed on standard Luton van conversions with tail lifts. The other significant benefits are increased payload, lower loading height and increased fuel efficiency.
