YOYO Multidrops is ready to reveal its technology and continuing to offer demos around the UK and remains committed to launching sales this summer.
YOYO Multidrops is a unique, patented all-electric interchangeable body system, that can be installed on any manufacturer’s 3.5t and electric 4.25t cab.
It is particularly suited to mixed fleets as it creates flexible LCVs, which can load and unload different body types – refrigerated, dropside, box, Luton, cage, etc.
Lifting and lowering is controlled by a single operator, usually the driver, via a two button handset, obviating the need for additional on-site lifting equipment. YOYO is non-hydraulic, robust and simple to use.
The YOYO Multidrops system significantly reduces turnaround times. Full or part loads up to 1.5t are loaded or unloaded in as little as 80 seconds.
The patented system is self-monitoring to ensure safe operation in a smooth, controlled action and comes with a host of additional safety features. This leaves users free to monitor their surroundings for potential hazards.
Retro-fits are easy on commercial vehicles up to five years old, making them suitable for existing fleets. As a fleet changes, existing load frames can be reused on new vehicles, thereby facilitating cost-effective business expansion.
Derek Bowes, Marketing Director at YOYO adds: “The YOYO system gives an LCV the ability to demount the body to the ground and pick up another load, all in the space of a couple of minutes.
“Operational efficiency is a top priority for fleet operators. They require quick turnaround to ensure vehicles are in use rather than being stuck in depots. Parked vehicles are not efficient and don’t make money!
“We’ve calculated that over three years, investment in the system with three loadframes – which could be three different types – can save over £120,000 compared with the cost of buying and operating three different vehicles.
“We already have interest from a number of LCV manufacturers, end users, converters and main dealers.”
Lee Parkinson at Trailer Express agrees: “The YOYO system has enabled us to fundamentally change the way we do business. We’re much faster to respond, more cost effective and genuinely able to meet the demands of our customers.”
About YOYO MultiDrops
YOYO MultiDrops is a revolutionary system that transforms a 3.5t/4.25t chassis into a multi-use, multi-role vehicle, capable of being used in mixed fleets with unlimited types of bodies. The unique system enables loads to be lowered to ground level and exchanged with minimum delay.
The YOYO system has undergone rigorous in house and third party testing, in line with British and European standards and directives. Type Approval is not required, as the load frame is deemed to be a payload. This frees the converter from the expense of approval schemes or the delay of an IVA.
