Please be aware that if you request your local dealer to modify the cab on a vehicle in any way (e.g. by cutting holes in the cab) it will:

  • Invalidate the cab's ECE R29 compliance.
  • Invalidate manufacturer's warranty (warranty coverage of any defects that could be attributed to the cab modification would be the responsibility of the modifying agency)
  • Limit the body weight and load capacity of the vehicle by up to 50% (extra 500KG is not permitted on front axle).

It has also become apparent that some body-makers fitting extra front axels and dual steering have not taken into consideration the weight of these extra items when calculating the front axle load rating. It is suggested that you may wish to confirm with the manufacturers that any extra items have been allowed for in the calculation for load capacity of the front axle.

This contract can be accessed via VendorPanel.
