Prinoth's GO-TRACT 4500 uses a microprocessor to optimize its performance in a variety of robust conditions.

Prinoth Ltd.'s GO-TRACT 4500 fully tracked equipment carrier offers what it says is a line-leading 46,000-lb (20,900-kg) payload with maximum mobility and minimum impact.

Designed to carry heavy equipment such as cranes up to 40-ton (36-t) capacity, man-lift booms, aerial devices, large drill rigs, and other heavy payloads, the new GO-TRACT 4500 has a ground pressure of just 4.4 psi (30 kPa) at the maximum gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR). The carrier offers 35 ft2 (3.3 m2) more deck space than the GO-TRACT 3000 stretch while still being able to fit on a double drop deck trailer.

A Caterpillar C9 U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIA engine provides 375 hp (280 kW) to drive the GO-TRACT 4500 at ground speeds up to 6 mph (10 km/h). The engine offers 375 hp (280 kW) @ 2200 and 1230 lb·ft (1668 N·m) @ 1400. The 120-gal (454-L) fuel tank allows for full day’s work without refueling.

An ergonomically engineered cabin includes an easy-to-read color display, microprocessor-control assisted steering, and ROPS certification at maximum GVWR. A backup camera is optional.
