The patented carriage feed system

delivers a full 110,000 lb (50,000 kg) or 120,000 (54,500 kg) of pullback (depending on the model) while providing rapid feed speeds as well as precise weight and speed control.

Tough, mobile, 8 x 4 or 10 x 6 carrier

depending on model, is completely self-contained

Powerful engine

a 425 HP engine and drive train move the rig down the road at standard highway speeds while providing ample power for off-road maneuverability.
