CROSSWAY - Modular Mission Vehicle

Based upon OVIK’s own, ultra strong HEAVY DUTY STRIVE chassis.


One Vehicle - Multiple Missions

The OVIK CROSSWAY Modular Mission System utilises the unique YOYO load changer system both to manage logistical loads and / or to completely re-role the vehicle.

This is a highly specialised demount or load changer system; but gone is the cumbersome, expensive and heavy hydraulic hook system normally required to change payload as part of a demount or 'DROPS' system; the YOYO load changer is a revolution in vehicle modular load system management. YOYO utilises cables and electronics to swap loads of up to 3 tonnes in a little under 60 seconds.

Mounted onto the OVIK CROSSWAY 6x6 the YOYO system transforms the vehicle into a truly modular demount vehicle; making loading, unloading and management of containerised loads simpler than ever before.  What's more, with the OVIK Modular Mission System - the YOYO load changer is employed to actually swap the rear body; effectively re-roling the vehicle.
