Rough-terrain Dumper Carries Big Payloads With Stability

Reutech Prinoth, a leading manufacturer of tracked vehicles, has released the newest model in the Panther series, the T14R rotating dumper. The T14R is designed to allow continuous rotation of the upper portion of the vehicle independently from the undercarriage. With its 13,200- kg (29,100-lb) payload capacity, it is claimed to have the largest payload of any vehicle in its category. The rotating separation of the vehicle allows work in tight areas where other vehicles may not have access. Featuring a large-wheels/ tandem-suspension undercarriage design unique to the Panther vehicles, the T14R offers increased off-road capability and stable transport of material over rough terrain. It is also claimed to differentiate itself from the competition by its top speed of 13 km/h (8.1 mph) and its narrower width of less than 102 in. A new direction-reset convenience feature has been added; by simply pushing a button, the operator can automatically reset the vehicle’s upper and lower portion alignment.
