In 2003 HMS developed their own cab to body access whilst still maintaining the tilt cab option. The system gives the feel of a larger living area and also gives the possibility to carry more people in the vehicle without isolating the driver, the most important function is that you can still tilt the cab for servicing to date 10 systems have been installed.

Mcload Side View
7.5 tonne Ford Cargo converted internally only by HMS for a karting team. Carrying capacity 4 karts and all spares required, Initially our contract was only to fit windows and side doors but as with many vehicles that customer bring for alterations the jobs grow and grow.
This was the first vehicle we designed for karting, from our experience gained on this build and further research we are now in a position to substantially improve on this design if required.
The more information and input the client can give the better the final vehicle can be for their specific form of motorsport.
