Can-Am to Isle of Wight Zoo
C&O custom upgrade Can-Am HD8
C&O’s Isle of Wight team have supplied a rather unique Can-Am utility vehicle to the Isle of Wight Zoo. The Can-Am HD8 Defender has be modified to meet the very specific requirements of the view and will be used to transport sedated animals to the animal hospital at the Zoo.
The HD8 started as a 6 seat machine, C&O’s engineers have adapted it via fabrication to become a 3 seat machine with extended tipping body and carrying capacity. The Can-Am has a 800kg pay load capacity in the box with a 1200kg tow capacity in hydraulic tipping body. There are two storage draws in chassis (30kg capacity each), Flip up front screen and Wiper, Electric windows and 14” alloy wheels, all powered by a 800CC V-Twin Rotax engine (LPG convertible upon request) with a top speed of 62 MPH.
