ARDCO presented its next generation articulating multi-purpose truck at ConExpo, featuring a modular back-end platform that offers the flexibility to customize the vehicle to suit any work environment, from urban construction projects to extreme off-road jobsites. The AMT is designed to accept a wide range of standard and customizable attachments including a bare chassis, flatbed, water tank, fuel tank, dump bed, service and lube station, utility bed, personnel carrier, pipe trailer, drill, and custom solutions.

End-users can change attachments, and rental companies can serve a variety of customer applications with a single machine.

Multiple tire choices – tractor, construction, terra or sand – help further configure the machine to various work conditions in construction, oil and gas, railroad, utility, forestry and agriculture. The AMT can navigate difficult terrain.

The truck is powered by a 250- horsepower Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 4 diesel engine, and features selectable 4- or 6-wheel-drive and offers a maximum payload of 45,000 pounds. The AMT 400 model has a 200-horsepower Cummins Tier 4 engine, offers 2- or 4-wheel drive, and provides a max payload of 28,000 pounds for hauling fuel, water, dirt and more. Top travel speed is 23 miles per hour.

Specifically built for off-road travel, the AMT includes a high-strength center pivot trunnion with about 20 degrees of oscillation, allowing all the tires to maintain ground contact and traction on rough terrain. Dual hydraulic cylinders provide 37 degrees of steering each way, allowing for good maneuverability and added traction.

ARDCO was founded in 1955 and has more than 3,500 machines working internationally, navigating rough terrain and reaching remote locations.
