When a four-wheel-drive pickup may not be enough to get through the toughest terrain with the heaviest hauls, you may want to consider a Prinoth tracked utility vehicle.

Prinoth announced that it’s increased the payload capacity for its Panther T6, T8 and T12 models in the dump box and flatbed configurations. Load hauling capacity for the T6 capacity has increased by 20 percent, the T8 by 19 percent and the T12 by 9 percent.

Prinoth reports that its Panther models offer best-in-class payload capacities ranging from 12,000 to 46,000 pounds.

“The Prinoth Panther can reach work sites in any terrain: delicate grounds, rocks, steep hills, swamps or even deep mud,” a Prinoth representative states. “The overall design allows the Panther to reach fording depths of up to 55 inches. The Panther performs brilliantly at any angle and in any situation.”

Pavement-friendly rubber tracks feature a zigzag pattern that increases traction and side-hill grip. Prinoth reports that the Panther moves at a “remarkable speed” while an exclusive large wheel tandem suspension undercarriage provides unparalleled off-road mobility and comfort.

Prinoth, based in Canada, recently introduced a new model in the Panther series, the T14R Rotating Dumper. Along with class-topping speed and payload at 8.1 mph and 29,100 pounds respectively, the T14R features a patent-pending innovation called direction reset. This allows the continuous rotation of the upper portion of the vehicle independent from the undercarriage, allowing the T14R to work in tight, sensitive areas where other vehicles do not have access.

“We are always looking for ways to move further, to push boundaries and productivity is always at the centre of our customers’ needs,” said Jonathan Thibault, Prinoth’s tracked utility vehicles product manager. “Our customers’ requests are crucial at Prinoth and we always try to listen to their needs, to answer by providing simple yet efficient solutions with them and for them.”
