Powered by the reliable Toyota 1GD-FTV engine, the Hino 200 Series packs 144 PS of output with 300 Nm of torque. Furthermore, this light duty truck’s compact cab and frame makes it suitable for navigating narrow barangay roads while delivering its dependable pull and loading capabilities despite challenging circumstances. Each rescue truck comes with basic life support equipment including an oxygen tank, blood pressure apparatus, a collapsible bed and a two-way radio. These features ensure that the vehicles are well-equipped and always ready to handle a whole range of emergency situations effectively.
