• PANTHER T8 Carrier

    The PANTHER T8 Carrier combines the proven capabilities of the Cat® C7.1 ACERT™ engine model with the industry expertise in off-road vehicles by PRINOTH. Built with a widened chassis to accept virtually all implements without any modifications, PLM makes the PANTHER T8 available in four configurations; flat bed with crane, a tilting flat bed, a dump box, and the CPW125-4 Series 2 Weld Deck that provides continuous powered welding with an custom-built hydraulic slewing canopy by Vanguard. From construction to right-of-way maintenance, in the middle of nowhere or within city limits, the PANTHER T8 has the toughness, tenacity and reliability you need in a carrier.
