• PANTHER T7R Tracked Rotating Carrier

    The PANTHER T7R Tracked Rotating carrier is set to redefine the standards for productivity and cost effectiveness.  This machine offers a payload capacity of 15,432 lb.(7 000 kg) and a top speed of 8.1 mph (13 km/hr) with a superior fuel autonomy that easily allows contractors to work through a whole day, even a long one, without needing to refuel.  Unmatched performance and industry-standard payload capacity means the PANTHER T7R can boast a 31% superiority in overall productivity.

    The rotating separation of this vehicle allows the operator to work in tight, sensitive areas where other vehicles do not have access.  The direction reset feature allows the operator to push a button that will reset the vehicle’s upper and lower portions’ alignment.  Together with a ground pressure of 4.99 psi and 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.
