Features

Overhead Switch Console

Overhead Switch Console

A Leader exclusive, we have designed the cab headliner in order to move the switches and siren overhead.  Making it easier for the driver to remain focused on the road without having to look down to locate the appropriate switch.  This frees up more space in the dash area for radios, laptops and MDT (mobile data terminals).  

Leader Electrical

Leader Electrical

The power distribution system has the best of both worlds.  We combined individual printed circuit boards on a rail system with standard automotive relay and circuit breaker technology.  You get the high reliability of printed circuit boards with the in the field serviceability of readily available automotive replacement parts.  We designed these circuit boards to meet stringent military specifications.  They have reverse polarity protection, come with built in diagnostic LED’s, and auto reset circuit breakers.  The individual boards quickly snap in and out for replacement requiring no special tools.  One of the most maintenance free systems on the market.

Ducted Heat/AC

Ducted Heat/AC

At Leader we have engineered the shape of the duct to maximize even air flow and to provide you with the fastest most efficient exchange of air in the patient compartment.  We put the vents on the upper left of the full length of the vehicle near the ceiling in order to provide conditioned air directly to the patient and medics.  With six adjustable vents you will be able to put the air where you need it to warm up or cool down immediately.

AC/Heat Intake and Filter

AC/Heat Intake and Filter

We move the intake vent down low for more efficient air circulation.  Provides easy maintenance access and a replaceable air filter behind the stainless steel intake vent.

All Aluminum Slanted Backboard Storage:

All Aluminum Slanted Backboard Storage:

Almost every call requires a backboard so we provide you with quick rear door access and an all metal storage compartment that will last the life cycle of the vehicle.  We slanted the storage compartment to provide an ergonomically correct squad bench that is the not too high and provides needed foot space.

Vertical rear O2 Storage

Vertical rear O2 Storage

To shift weight off the front axle we moved the oxygen tank to the rear of the vehicle. We engineered a steel powder coated bracket to safely hold the bottle in place.  The cabinet has an aluminum “L” shaped door to make it easier to load the “M” size oxygen bottle.

D bottle Storage

D bottle Storage

The DE design maximizes space as much as possible.  Giving you additional storage areas throughout the vehicle.
