The combination lets customers access to hard-to-reach areas and employ the unit in the aerial mode of operation with 222 ft. of working height and 1,200 lbs. of platform capacity.
Prinoth and Altec worked closely together on developing the unit to ensure both systems, the carrier and the unit, would have best-in-class safety, reliability and off-road performance.
The quick-attach platform can be used on either the main boom, the 49-ft. telescopic jib, or the 6-ft. composite reach extension. The unit was designed to optimize deck-space and allow easy access to the cab from anywhere in rotation.
The workhorse AC45 is also available on the T22. More specifications can be obtained by contacting Altec directly.
The Panther T22 complies with Tier-4-Final emission standards, offers 46,000 lbs. of payload, and is undoubtedly one of the largest tracked carriers on the market.
Equipped with the innovative R.A.D. (Rapid Attach Design) chassis, a Prinoth exclusive designed specifically for the power utility industry, this vehicle can receive large cranes or other sizable implements. With a ground pressure of only 4.39 psi at the maximum GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating), the unit will easily travel through mud or other soft soils to allow power utility companies to reach even the hardest terrains.
The Panther crawler carrier series comprises the T6, T8, T12, T14R, T16, and T22 models. The models in the series can access difficult work sites without damaging the terrain, thanks to their low ground pressure. While treading softly, they also carry the biggest payloads in the industry – from 5,443 kg (12,000 lb.) up to 20,865 kg (46,000 lb.) worth of equipment, materials, and supplies. Their superior stability and flotation are valuable when operating in challenging work environments such as mining, construction, oil and gas, and electric utility.
