MEDLITE and FIRELITE Transport Skids Fit New Gravely Atlas JSV


ORLEANS, VT;—In its recent expansion into side-by-side utility vehicles, Wisconsin-based Gravely®, an Ariens Company brand, has introduced the 2015 Gravely Atlas, a heavy-duty jobsite UTV that readily accommodates the KIMTEK® MEDLITE® and FIRELITE® transport skid units. The new Atlas JSV 3000 and JSV 6000 crew gas and diesel models each have a cargo bed capacity of 1250 pounds, easily supporting any of the nine UTV transport skid units KIMTEK currently offers for off-road fire and rescue operations.

Effective combination
With modular, slide-in design and adaptability, KIMTEK’s skid units install into Atlas JSVs in just minutes. Their included tie-down system attaches simply and quickly to the Atlas integrated tie-downs already located in the UTV cargo bed. With room for an attendant and a patient in the MEDLITE units, and the ability to carry up to 85 gallons of water plus a patient in the FIRELITE units, the Atlas JSV-KIMTEK combinations offer first responders in police, fire, and EMS agencies powerful tools for off-road fire and rescue, wildland search and rescue, large event response, lifeguard operations, industrial fire and medical response, and several other field applications.
