Dear National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research Limited,

What weight boat/vehicle do you tow behind any passenger vehicle you have in your fleet requiring a standard full licence? Have just read article about your recent purchase of trucks with 4500kg towing capacity at 170k each and am interested as to why didn't buy 70 series landcruisers at 75k each with 3500kg capacity.also what vehicle were you previously using to do the job these new trucks are replacing?
Yours faithfully,

Kalan baker
