UK tracked carrier manufacturer ‘Tracked Carriers’ has confirmed sales and rental company Thovo as its distributor for Sweden, following an order placed at Vertikal Days for five units of the company's 1.2 tonne capacity Tracked Carrier 1200 Pro, along with two of its new AC1200 crane attachment.
The 1200 series is an all-round crawler carrier with and overall width of 750mm, AC motor direct drive, powered by maintenance free batteries and fully proportional remote controls. The unladen weight is 340kg.
The crane attachment for the 1200 Pro, has a three section telescopic boom, with a maximum capacity of 500kg at a radius of one metre, while the maximum radius is 2.5 metres at which it can handle 200kg.
The crane can be factory fitted or supplied as a retrofit attachment, requiring around 10 minutes to install. The outriggers have a spread of 1.25 metres at the front and just over two metres at the rear.
Founded in 2012 Thovo is based in Särö - to the south of Gothenburg on Sweden’s west coast - and is owned and managed by the father and son team of Thomas and Fabian Voeler. The company, which has been working with Tracked Carriers over the past two years, specialises in the supply of equipment such as electric conveyors, dumpers, Pianoplan stair climbers and utility vehicle to contractors.
Ben Dobson of Tracked Carriers, said: “We are delighted to strengthen our relationship with Thovo as they invest in more of our machines and become one of the first customers for our crane attachment. Thovo is a great example of how a proactive dealer can achieve success by targeting a specific market segment.”
Thomas Voeler added: “Tracked Carriers have been an immediate success for Thovo. It is a material handling solution that is really competitively priced, and they are excellent quality machines that always run smoothly for us.”
