New Product Release-GVM Upgrade Kit for Mazda BT50
22 October 2013
If your Mazda BT50 carries loads for a living or if you are serious about what you take with you on your next journey then Pedders has the answer for you! When your BT50 is fully loaded for the journey ahead or if you’re carrying the tools of your work trade, chances are that your BT50 may be overloaded beyond its GVM and you may not even know it. Common items such as tools, tool boxes, cargo, bull bars, winches, towbars, recovery gear and even your passengers all combine to increase the overall gross vehicle mass. Its also important to note that if you have purchased a cab/chassis, the weight of the tray is not part of the “curb weight”. Every vehicle on our roads today has an official legally allocated gross vehicle mass rating (GVM). The GVM rating is a legal weight figure (in kg’s) that results in the total maximum allowable weight of a vehicle when fully loaded. It’s essentially the maximum legal weight, that you can safely drive at for that particular vehicle. Pedders now offer a GVM upgrade solution for selected BT50 models to assist in compliance for GVM ratings. The reason for this solution is for the following requirements: O.H.&S. vehicle insurance, warranty issues and being road legal. Through exhaustive and detailed testing, the Pedders GVM Upgrade Kits have been approved by the Federal Department of Infrastructure and Transport.
