• PANTHER T12 Carrier

    The PANTHER T12 Carrier combines the proven capabilities of the Cat® C7.1 ACERT™ engine model with the industry expertise in off-road vehicles by PRINOTH.  The PANTHER T12 has a payload of 25,000 lb. (11 340 kg) and a ground pressure of 5.95 psi, fully loaded, making difficult types of terrain accessible. Together with a strong pull ratio, these features allow this carrier crawler to access your pipeline construction site, even if the terrain is difficult, without damage to the environment.

    Built with a widened chassis to accept virtually all implements without any modifications, PLM makes the PANTHER T12 available in these configurations; flat bed with crane, tilting flat bed and the auto tie-in crane application for welding operations.

    Features & Information

    • Cat® C7.1 ACERT™ engine, 250 hp (186.5 kW), U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final / EU Stage IV
    • Highest payload in its class at 25,000 lb. (11 340 kg) with a ground pressure loaded at 5.95 psi.
    • Carrier stays in contact with the ground with numerous blocks that provide bite while the angular cuts and “zig-zag” tread provide side hill grip.
    • A dynamic track tension offers proper tension while working at all times. Large wheels allow for more contact with the track, more stability, longer track life and prevent freezing of the undercarriage in harsh winter temperatures. 
    • Steering wheel control is ergonomic, telescopic and tilt able.  This feature allows for a safe grip while moving through rough terrain and maintaining optimal precision and control.
    • Roll Over Protection Structure (ROPS) built within the cab frame for operator protection.

    From construction to the right-of-way maintenance, in the middle of the nowhere or within city limits, the PANTHER T12 has the toughness, tenacity and the reliability you need in an off-road carrier.
