Harcon’s Bridge Trackers are the most aggressive extreme terrain bridge inspection machines in the world. Harcon has three Bridge Trackers: T-63, T-44, T-40 (the numbers correspond to their working heights), and STU, our Sidetracker. They can operate in water depths varying from seven to nine feet. All can climb slopes in excess of 35 degrees, traverse 25 degree slopes, and navigate wet and muddy terrain that would bury most off-road machines. Their rubber tracks eliminate damage to paved areas. Railroad tracks are a piece of cake. All our Trackers have onboard compressors and pneumatic tools for bridge cleaning.
The two smaller units weigh in at approximately 9 tons. The T-63 weighs 20 tons.
At under 3,000 pounds, our Sidetracker (STU) is the lightest weight motorized under-bridge access machine in existence. We’ve fabricated two boom lengths, one which allows us to reach over an eight foot fence. The Sidetracker is perfect for cantilevered sidewalks. We’ve found it also extremely useful on pedestrian bridges or other load sensitive structures where conventional equipment is simply too heavy. Vertical down-reach varies from five to eight feet from deck level, depending on the boom being used.
