Available with either twin or single rear wheels, the Grafter Green can also be specified with a range of dealer-ready body options. Tippers, dropsides and chassis cabs are available, while a number of other body options can be arranged through dealers. A new PTO mated to the MVC6W gearbox also allows for a more flexible range of bodies and powered accessories on the vehicle.

If 3.5-tonnes GVW is not enough there is also the option of a 5.5-tonne, 6.5-tonne and 7.5-tonne version of the Grafter. While the Grafter Green models are only available on the 3.5-tonners, the higher chassis weight vehicles are equipped with a new Euro-6 compliant version of the 3-litre engine. For customers looking to make use of the 3.5-tonne towing capacity of the Grafter at 3.5 tonnes, there is also a 3-litre engine available at that weight size. All of the 3-litre engine Grafters are known as Grafter Blue, as they require an AdBlue after treatment system in order to meet the Euro-6 emissions standard.

Higher GVW models of the Grafter are also available direct from dealers with a range of off-the-shelf body options including chassis, tipper, dropside and box bodies with tail lifts.
