Cape-Ape Mini Trucks*

Affordable, tough, effective and versatile, Cape-Ape mini trucks have quickly established a reputation as a go-anywhere, all-seasons utility vehicle that’s perfectly suited to a broad range of applications.  Agricultural operations of all sizes and varieties are delighted with the fact that Cape-Ape mini trucks have such low ground pressure yet possess enough torque to climb steep hills and pull substantial loads.

Cape-Ape mini trucks boast an enviable list of features and are superior to any other vehicle of their type. Standard 4x4 and manual transmissions make these vehicles perfect for off-road use or slogging through drenched fields.  The drop-down side and rear gates on the bed are ideal for loading and off-loading product, and with a carrying capacity of 1,400 pounds at low speed, these trucks are set to haul some impressive cargo!  Heaters are standard in the two-seat, fully-enclosed cabs, and some are also available with air conditioning to make them truly year-around comfortable.  Cape-Ape mini trucks are also user-friendly with normal vehicle maintenance requirements and excellent fuel economy.

The Japanese have been manufacturing Mini Trucks since the early 1960s for agricultural and on-road use. Cape-Ape Imports, LLC is able to import high-quality, low-mileage mini trucks that can deliver years of reliable service. With affordable and competitive prices, Cape-Ape Mini Trucks are a perfect alternative to their more expensive and less capable competitors.
