No Site Too Remote for Terebros Go Anywhere TUVs

Posted: Wednesday 1st February 2006

Terebro's new fleet of Hägglunds BV206 all-terrain tracked utility vehicles (TUVs) makes the inaccessible accessible. The specialist plant hire company has added the amphibious TUVs to its hire fleet to provide a simple solution to all off-road transportation needs, while eliminating the high costs of ownership for the operator.

Delivered to site in rapid response by Terebro, the TUVs can be used to move materials, equipment and personnel to remote working locations without requiring road or track access. There is never a need to construct dedicated access across open country. Remarkably, the TUVs can also be driven on public roads by anyone who holds a standard car driving licence.

Able to operate in extreme climate conditions, they offer year-round access to remote locations, even coping with 100% (45°) inclines. This makes them ideal for use by a wide range of industries such as utilities (gas, water, electricity) provision, land and forestry management or firefighting, construction, and coastal and mountain rescue and recovery, where the remoteness of a work site could cause delays.

In addition to their all-terrain capability, the TUVs are fully amphibious (without any prior preparation) allowing operators to cross water obstacles (such as rivers and streams), marshes and peat bogs. A low ground pressure of only 8 PSI (less than half of a person's foot) makes them ideal for use in sensitive or fragile lowland or highland habitats. A narrow width, of less than 2m, also minimises disruption to the environment.

The TUVs seat up to six crew, including the driver, in the front unit. Flat bed and drop sided rear units give hirers the ability to carry a variety of equipment in addition to loose or bagged materials. Terebro currently offer three pod-mounted utility units, specifically a Jetchem drain jetter, root cutter and tanker, with a Hiab crane unit available soon.

Originally designed for use by the Swedish Army, the BV206 consists of two tracked units linked together with a steering unit, each unit consisting of a chassis with a body mounted on four rubber elements. The front and rear units are connected by a unique hydraulic steering linkage, which gives great flexibility in all axles and extremely good manoeuvrability. Maximum road range is 330 km and load capacity is 2500 kg.
