From 1995 to 1996, manual handling injuries cost UK employers almost ?335 million. CBI Director General Digby Jones, said: ?People are more aware of their rights and more willing to take legal action.? A commercial vehicle that saves labour, reduces injury risk and can even improve productivity is designed with a hydraulic system that raises and lowers the cargo floor. It enables its entire load bed to drop to ground level for loading and unloading. Called the Razorback, the vehicle can be fitted with a variety of front wheel drive cab options. For electrical contractors the vehicle has a number of benefits for loading and unloading panels, heavy equipment and cable reels. As the entire load bed can be fully lowered to the ground, the contractor can directly wheel loads on and off from ground level. It has a payload of 1000kg and operated at the push of a button. At 3.5t, the Razorback can be driven by anyone with an ordinary car licence. It has a two-year, unlimited mileage warranty.
