Features & Information

  • Emissions Technology.  The Cat C7.1 ACERT engine meets EPA Tier 4 Final/ EU Stage IV emission standards.

  • Performance.  The PANTHER T12 features an uphill & downhill gradeability of 60% (31º), sidehill gradeability of 40% (21.8º), and a maximum speed of 8.4 mph (13.5 km/h).  Pavement-friendly rubber tracks and remarkable speed make the PANTHER highly mobile.  Numerous blocks provide bite into the ground while angular cuts and “zig-zag” tread provide side-hill grip.  Dynamic track tension gives you proper tension while working.  Large wheels give more contact with the ground and more stability.  

  • Versatility and more.  PLM makes the PANTHER T12 available in four configurations: flat bed with crane, a tilting flat bed, a dump box, and the WELD DECK with auto tie-in crane.  See additional information below.  Together with a ground pressure of 6.20 psi and a strong pull ratio, these features allow this carrier crawler to access your pipeline construction site, even if the terrain is difficult, without damage to the environment.
