Zeal Motor Inc. the manufacturer of the famous FAT TRUCK® is proud to announce the official launch of its new
high speed capstan drive mounted on the FAT TRUCK®. A first in the utility industry. 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.
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. This new option is totally integrated on the vehicle and was designed
with the expertise of the linemen. The utilities now have the capacity of the larger equipment, the
lower cost of operation and mobility of the smaller ATV’s. This integrated option on the FAT
TRUCK® will give the opportunity to work where conventional equipment usually get stuck. We
are talking about major cost savings on operations and on vehicle transportations, says Amine
Khimjee Vice-President of Sales & Marketing at Zeal Motor Inc.”
The synergy of having the utility companies involved in the project was key to have the right tool
at the right moment for the right job. The FAT TRUCK® integrated solution with the high-speed
capstan drive offers a lifting capacity of up to 1900 lb, a maximum speed of up to 300
feet/minutes and can handle angles from -30° to + 45°. “We are dedicated to provide the optimal
tool vehicle by listening to our customers and developing the best solutions for the utilities, says
Maxim O’Shaughnessy, President of Zeal Motor Inc”
