All-new MT-350 takes precision hitching on a smooth ride

Good news for folks who spend their work shifts hitching/unhitching trailers: Motrec has just launched its reinvented MT-350 tow tractor. In addition to offering vastly smoother suspension and steering, the new MT-350 also promises to make precision hitching safer and easier than ever – even when working with multiple trailers.

Long-time fans of this precision-hitching workhorse will be happy to know that the MT-350 is still a rugged, low-to-the-ground AC-powered vehicle able to tow up to 16,000 lbsBut the latest generation now also boasts – among many other things – standard rear suspension with leaf springs and shock absorbers to minimize impacts for operators, and a steering pivot on sealed ball bearings instead of bushings to eliminate maintenance and make steering easier.”

 “Our new MT-350 was redesigned with extensive input from end-users, who told us what they were looking for in terms of comfort, safety, performance and easy operation.
