Another Champion Slidebed For Oasis Rescue
Following on from their 2022 fleet upgrade and expansion programme, Rayan and Anya from Oasis Rescue and Recovery returned to Boniface to collect their first Champion slidebed of 2023 – this time fitted to a new 14 tonne GVW, Volvo FL250 with crew cab and rear air suspension.
As always, the striking Oasis graphics combined with the bright blue steel deck of the Champion slidebed make this vehicle a real head-turner and one that will promote a very positive professional company image whilst out on the road. Oasis’ continued investment into their business has resulted in a very modern fleet – most of which is Euro 6 compliant enabling them to travel without restriction or additional expense into the new low emission zones which are now becoming increasingly common throughout the country.
The Champion slidebed is a very robust, reliable and capable product that has been extensively used by operators all over the UK and Ireland for many years. It is available in three capacities, 3.5t, 5t and 6t and is available with either a steel or aluminium deck making it suitable for many different chassis and applications. One of the many standard features of the Champion 5t & 6t products is a hydraulically sliding 8,000lb hydraulic winch that allows the operator to easily maintain a straight pull on the vehicle’s towing eye. The 2t capacity 2nd car lift is adjustable for both width and tire size allowing the operator to move anything from the smallest car to the largest van. Like most Boniface slide beds, the subframe and tipping frames are fully galvanized to help prolong equipment life and the body is fitted with LED beacon, work lights and marker lights - all of which will provide years of reliable service. The Champion slidebed has lever controls housed in a locker at the rear but may also be specified with a remote control for the winch or all functions if required. Operation of the bed is smooth and quiet whilst clearly labeled controls make operating the product very user friendly.
This latest vehicle for Oasis was built to their exact requirements and included some optional extras such as low winch facility in the deck allowing casualties to be winched onto the 2nd car lift, wrecker kit, trailer board, radio remote control, side winching points and many more.
