The RT-40T performs area giving more traction when it’s required. as an all-weather “land barge” for remote area haulage over Arctic tundra, snow, ice and sand terrain. Unique features include: Reliable operation in – 40° F ambient temperatures. High gradability and side-slope stability for high CG in extreme roadless conditions. Power train meets modern Tier 3 and J1939 environmental standards. Transmits chassis payloads and drive torque to the ground through 14 large-footprint, smooth-tread balloon tires. The RT-40T represents the third generation of evolutionary design in a 50-year technology. The RT-40T spreads an 80,000-pound payload over Rimpull 60’’ x 72’’ tires. As a result, the RT-40T’s huge ground contact area eliminates damage to terrain.
