Designed for stability, simplicity & ease of use for power line work. The Achiever RT-08 DD Digger Derrick is a very low ground pressure all terrain tracked digger derrick. It excels in mud, snow and soft ground due to its extremely light ground pressure at 3.0 PSI. High power to weight ratio allows it to easily climb inclines that other machines in its class can not. Optional all season 33″ rubber tracks allow unloading on pavement. This Achiever works in up to 42″ of water and can wade in up to 48 inches.
