Don’t Be Fooled by Big Tires: The True Secret to Off-Road Material Handling

Have you ever looked at a machine and thought, “Those tires look big enough to handle anything”?  While ground clearance is certainly important, it’s not the only factor to consider when it comes to off-road material handling.

The innovative engineering of the RT240 sets it apart from the competition. It’s not just about brute force—it’s about intelligent design

Here are some of the features that make the RT240 a champion on rough terrain:

    • 2- and 4-Wheel Drive Selectable 2- and 4-wheel drive. 2-Wheel Drive is used at higher traveling speeds, while 4-Wheel drive is essential for maximum traction in sand, mud, rocks, etc.
    • 2- 4- and Crab Steering Three selectable steering modes for maximum maneuverability in confined areas.
    • Powerful drivetrain 400 HP Cummins Diesel Engine, 4 speed forward and 3 speed reverse automatic transmission, plus differential axles with planetary hubs produce maximum torque to conquer inclines and soft ground with ease.
    • Rugged Firestone 29.5-35 Super Rock Grip Extra Wide Tires maximize grip while minimizing ground pressure.
    • Articulated Rear Axle conquers the roughest terrains.
    • Fording designed to safely ford up to 5 feet (1.5 meters) of water.
    • Top Handler Powered Pile Slope engages containers on uneven ground with ease.
    • Maximum Ground Clearance along with optimized approach, departure, and break-over angles to handle the most demanding terrain.
    • Carbon Alloy Skid Plates designed to protect the underbody and vital drivetrain components from debris normally found in the roughest terrains.
