Good grounding

The Movano Grounds Maintenance Vehicle is designed to suit the requirements of groundsmen, green keepers, park-keepers and other sectors of the land industry

As well as a beavertail loading ramp designed to take small tractors or plant, standard features include full air-lowering suspension with set ride height, eight underbody rope hooks, six load-floor lashing eyes, thermoplastic rear mud wings and LED side marker and rear lights.

Options include an H-frame light box, a lockable plastic belly locker, a range of lockable storage box options, a set of winter dropsides, an eight-litre hot/cold powered handwash plus a 10-litre door-mounted petrol can and 40-litre on-board diesel refuelling tank.

The body is available on any Movano LWB chassis cab, all of which feature a Euro IV compliant 2.5-litre CDTi engine, with a choice of 100, 120 or 146PS power outputs and a standard six-speed manual gearbox. The maximum payload is dependent on engine choice, but is up to 1583kg.

Both body styles come with the same level of standard kit as all Movanos, meaning they get a driver’s airbag, dual passenger bench seat, electronic engine deadlock and immobiliser, stereo CD/radio, remote central locking and optional air conditioning, passenger airbag, remote control security system and satellite navigation.

In each case, the base vehicle, excluding the converted components, is also covered by Vauxhall’s comprehensive three-year/100,000-mile warranty, 12 months’ Vauxhall Assistance roadside rescue package and six-year anti-perforation warranty.
