|Honda Pioneer 1000 with Kimtek FIRELITE Transport
First responders have expanded options with new UTV/skid unit combination
ORLEANS, VT; September, 2016— In its continued expansion into side-by-side utility vehicles, the newly introduced Honda Pioneer 1000-3 readily accommodates the Kimtek MEDLITE and FIRELITE skid units. The Honda Pioneer 1000 has a cargo bed capacity of 1,000 pounds, allowing enough capacity to carry most of the UTV skid units KIMTEK currently offers.
A Useful Combination
With its modular, slide-in design and numerous adaptability features, Kimtek’s MEDLITE and FIRELITE Transport skid units can be installed in the Honda Pioneer 1000 cargo bed in just minutes. The MEDLITE and FIRELITE’s included tie-down system attaches to the Honda’s integrated tie-downs already located in the cargo bed for fast, simple installation. With MEDLITES offering a place for an attendant and a patient and the FIRELITES offering up to 70 gallons of water and patient transport area, these combinations give first responders a powerful tool for off-road fire and rescue, wildland search and rescue, large event response, lifeguard operations, industrial fire and medical response, and many more field applications for police, fire, and EMS response agencies.
