The Aquarius Load Tray Extension attaches to the front or rear of the R2R 4×4 for towing on the rail to increase the payload and flexibility of the vehicle. It allows the easy transportation of equipment from the track access point to the work site whilst still retaining space in the R2R 4×4 RRV for personnel and other tools.
For road transport this neat piece of kit is carried on the back of the Aquarius R2R 4×4 RRV and is easily deployed once on track. A second Load Tray Extension can be carried in another vehicle with equipment to the access point.
