Default Flat Bed Offer coming soon

Register to stop seeing this ad!

We are working on a brochure for the US/Canadian market now as well as pricing for the two Ute Beds for these Mahindra trucks. Once we have everything in order we will work up a special deal for those who want to get the first ones, sort of like Jay has done with Motorcars Mahindra. Way to go Jay....

Just mark this thread so that you get updates or keep checking back. Should have the brochures and details in a week or so.
Regards,
Randy Cryer

Do you have a dump bed option for this, that would be perfect for my farm use.

Yes, this will accommodate a dump. The dump mechanism will take away some of your payload capacity, but that shouldn't be an issue with the Mahindra's payload.

Hey Randy, how much further out does the flat bed go past the sides of the cab?
Do you have a photo looking down on the truck?

I'm thinking about wind resistance.

Shouldn't be much wind drag. Maybe a couple inches on either side, but this will be in the wake of the cab. You can remove the drop sides also, when not carrying a load and that will cut wind drag at the rear. That also makes backing and parallel parking a breeze.

Here's a photo from the front of the Australian model cab. Should be the same "dimensionally" as the US model cab.
