The PANTHER T16 crawler carrier in the implement-ready on rubber tracks version has a GVWR of 34,019 kg (75,000 lb). Like the traditional D-dent version, it can carry many different types of equipments and is suited for the most challenging of terrains and the rubber track option allows more versatility when crossing or traveling on roads- as well as being gentler on shop floors when up-fitting or maintaining the vehicles.
The T16 undercarriage was completely redesigned for the rubber track option to provide a sturdy undercarriage composed of five large wheels with both a tandem and a tridem suspension. PRINOTH’s patented tridem allows uniform distribution of the load over the rubber track while offering the same legendary suspension travel typical to all PANTHER models. The undercarriage is optimized by the automatic, hydraulically controlled track tensioning system allowing to achieve the ideal track tension. This prolongs the track’s life and allows for less maintenance and down time. The endless rubber track on the PANTHER T16 has the same unique zigzag-patterned design which increases off-road mobility, providing outstanding traction and side-hill grip.
