• A dual-purpose pantechnicon, based on a Seddon chassis and built by Boalloy Ltd, of Congleton, has recently been supplied to Lewins Removals Ltd, of Consett. It has a drop-well at the rear that is convertible into • a full-length level floor. For handling pallets the floor has Joloda tracks set into the floor. Loose extensions of Joloda track are supported over the drop-well by a cross-beam of rectangular box section steel which is itself removable when an operator wishes to expose the well for easy loading of furniture.
The tailboard is hinged both vertically and horizontally so that it can be swung to one side. The cross.-beam is then dropped into place across the back of the drop-well and with the Joloda track in place the van can be pallet loaded. The dual-purpose capability, including a specially reinforced rear-end, costs an extra £55.
