January 2014; Westmore, VT—In its new lineup of larger side-by-side utility vehicles, Yamaha Motor Corporation has introduced the 2014 Yamaha Viking, a new UTV model that readily accommodates the Kimtek® MEDLITE Transport skid units. The Viking FI 4X4 and the FI 4X4 EPS UTVs each have a cargo bed capacity of 600 pounds, ideally suited to carry the MEDLITE Transport unit with attendant, patient, and gear.
A useful combination
With its modular, slide-in design and numerous adaptability features, Kimtek’s MEDLITE Transport skid unit can be installed in the Yamaha Viking cargo bed in just minutes. MEDLITE’s included tie-down system coordinates with the Viking’s integrated tie-downs already located in the cargo bed for fast, simple installation. With room for three persons in the driver’s compartment and an additional attendant in the rear, the new Viking-MEDLITE combination allows a total of four responders to reach and return with a patient. This combination gives first responders a powerful tool for off-road rescue, wildland search and rescue, large event medical response, lifeguard operations, industrial medical response, and many more field applications for police, fire, and EMS response agencies.
