Zeal Motor Inc. announced the official launch of its new high speed capstan drive mounted on the Fat Truck.
The high-speed capstan drive integrated on the back of an amphibious vehicle redefines the safety standards and the productivity level when working in harsh terrain on powerlines, according to the manufacturer.
High-speed capstan drives are usually mounted on much larger equipment. Before today, it was not possible to work efficiently with a high-speed capstan drive with smaller and more affordable equipment.
The integrated solution mounted on the back of a Fat Truck answers the market's need of working in safer conditions and being more productive in harsh terrains.
"By diverting the high flow hydraulic of the Fat Truck we were able to achieve a significant gain of productivity and improve the lifting capacity to install / change insulators, transformers or any other lifting requirements at the pole," said Amine Khimjee, vice president of sales and marketing at Zeal Motor Inc.
