Manitrax Tow Tractor


The ManiTrax Tow Tractor, the latest innovation in trackless mining equipment, is a brand new mining utility vehicle designed for hauling, towing and transporting. Used for transporting equipment, tools, skids, tanks and people, its operator's cab is positioned in the forward carriage for maximum visibility. In addition, process enhancing applications mean increased flexibility as the ManiTrax Tow Tractor has a wide range of modifications, such as the 1.5 ton crane, for example, which can enhance ManiTrax's loading and unloading functions.

ManiTrax Tow Tractor advantages

  • Flameproof modifications designed to prevent coal dust igniting
  • Full 4-wheel and Crab-Steering functionality allows for maximum manoeuvrability
  • Wide scope for modifications means less standalone equipment
  • Exceptional hauling capability with increased capacity reduces costs
