USGS Mobile Lab Vehicle

VEHICLE OVERVIEW

USGS had LDV create their own mobile field laboratory! Built on a Ford Transit T250 cutaway chassis, this vehicle boasts a 3.7L V6 gas engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. USGS opted to use the T250 upgrade package as well, which includes trailer wiring provisions and brake controllers, a heavy-duty alternator, and back-up parking sensors.

The inside has a heavy-duty rubber floor covering to combat heavy usage. Four dark slider windows with screens have been added throughout the vehicle to provide natural light. A stainless steel galley sink drains to a curbside waste tank. For added durability, solid surface countertops have been used on all counter space.

On the back of the vehicle, a full width aluminum gripstrut bumper provides a step to enter through the rear entry door. A translucent one-piece roof gives the vehicle a more open feeling. Eight 12 volt outlets can be found throughout the vehicle as well. For additional exterior storage, two horizontal and one vertical utility-style bed access compartments have been added to each side of the vehicle. To finish it off, an emergency lights package has been added for visibility when traveling to a scene.

"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.
