 FLEET READY 2018 MODEL GO4 EXT– Hydraulic Refuse Hauler

Winnipeg, MB – October 29, 2018Westward Industries, a Winnipeg, Canada based manufacturer of gas and electric vehicles, is pleased to announce the release of its 2018 model extended (EXT) frame platform equipped with optional hydraulic refuse  tub, with features that will appeal to the fleet buyer looking to dramatically reduce vehicle operating costs while increasing efficiency and performance.

The GO4 EXT Is reinforced, enhanced, and equipped with a more robust suspension system of our widely popular GO4 model. Our GO4 vehicles are available with a 45mpg gas and 100 mile range EV (exact economy numbers will depend on the application). This first offering of the GO4 EXT will be available in a gas model utilizing our 66 h.p., liquid cooled, 3-cylinder, overhead cam 4-cycle, electronically fuel injected 4-speed automatic propulsion system. (automotive transaxle with electronically controlled shift). The vehicle is street legal (check with your local DMV for licensing requirements) with a 1000lb payload and 1.75 cu yard capacity. This is the most nimble refuse hauler on the market and is the ideal vehicle for refuse collections including: campus setting corporate environments, neighborhood collection, universities (fitting thru pylons), parks/beach, compact urban settings, memorial gardens/cemeteries, zoos, shopping malls, etc. Our vehicle is the perfect size with remarkable maneuverability, payload, safety and performance.

Typically off-road vehicles are being utilized to carry out on-road duties. These vehicles are not designed for the day to day requirements that on-road vehicles must be in a position to handle. The GO4 EXT is manufactured with automotive grade components which offer a typical vehicle lifespan of eight or more years with many fleets experiencing longevity far exceeding that.

The GO4 EXT – Hydraulic Refuse Hauler is in Full Production with orders currently being fulfilled and available for purchase thru our dedicated Distribution Partners https://westwardindustries.com/find-a-dealer/ .



 With Head Offices in Winnipeg, Canada, Westward Industries is dedicated to being the global domestic manufacturing leader in producing niche vehicles with gas and electric propulsion systems thus creating transportation solutions for today’s fleet markets. The Company has been producing the widely popular GO4 which is primarily used for parking enforcement since 1990 with tens of thousands of vehicle deployments. In 2012 Westward Industries was acquired by the Franz Brothers who improved upon the popular gas vehicle platform and also expanded the offering to an all-electric high performance version as well.

“We are a family business with focus on product innovation and quality production.
With an entrepreneurial spirit as well as deep rooted mechanical knowledge,
our father started working on cars back in the late 50s in Northern Italy.
He then moved to Canada in the mid-60s and remained a top automotive technician for the rest of his career.” ~ Franz Brothers

Today these three brothers and a fantastic staff are working diligently to strengthen and expand the GO4 brand. Since purchasing the company in 2012 the company has launched many improvements to the vehicles and company as a whole. The GO4 line of vehicles is available thru our highly qualified distribution partners across the country.
