The U.S. EPA took delivery of their LDV-built mobile lab vehicle for conducting lab work in the field. This mobile lab was built on a Ford E450 commercial cutaway chassis and includes a 6.8L EI V10 unleaded gas engine and 6-speed automatic transmission.
Inside, custom-fabricated aluminum cabinets have been integrated for storage space. A host of customer-supplied equipment has been added as well including a sub-zero laboratory freezer, incubator, field refrigerator, and fume hood for preservation of samples. A compact flammable cabinet has also been added for use in the field. Multiple VersaTie tracks have been added. Chemical and stain resistant laminate countertops are used for protection against lab tests being conducted.
On the exterior, a color backup camera system aids with parking duties. A 7kw 120 volt AC generator provides electric power to the vehicle in its own custom-fabricated generator housing. Emergency lights help with visibility when traveling to a scene. There are multiple points of entry into the vehicle including a curbside and rear entry door. For HVAC, a power roof ventilator, low-profile air conditioner, and a 5,120 Btu/hr electric heater has been integrated.
"We are extremely happy with both of our LDV-built trucks. We have already recommended other Departments check-out LDV for their custom vehicle needs."

"I was very satisfied with the whole experience and process. I believe that the sales personnel and technicians are very knowledgeable and have years of institutional knowledge that shows in the execution of the unit. My questions were all ways answered immediately and if there was any reach back for additional confirmation it was always followed up with a phone call and email. The open lines of communication provided both of us the full awareness of where we were in the build process and helped eliminate unnecessary delays or unanswered questions. Everyone I encountered during my visits were always smiling and happy while working, which was great to see and experience. This is reflected in the finished product that was noticed by my staff and all others that have visited to see the new addition to our fleet."

The best feature of the vehicle is the flush floor slide-out in the front of the vehicle. It provides a very functional work area and always receives favorable comments.
