1995 Foden DROPS 8x6 Hookloader Truck Left Hand Drive


In Service Date: 30/08/1995. 12,897 kilometres unwarranted.

In the mid-90s, the British Army ordered several hundred Foden with a hookloading capability, to fulfill the requirement for delivering loads to front-line troops in locations requiring an off-road capability. Needing to deliver items such as containers, flat racks and various other "drop and go" items, the loading could reportedly be carried out within or around 30 seconds.

DROPS (Demountable Rack Offload and Pickup System) was the named specification, having been also assigned to their cousins fabricated on Leyland Daf platforms. Smart and low mileage Foden DROPS are a rarity, and this one comes from a very small number of this quality.
