Easy work with Morooka crawler dumper
MOROOKA dump carriers are well-made products that can handle all job requirements due to their hydrostatic hydraulic system and specially developed rubber tracks.
The MST dump carriers series ranges from 2.5 to 15 tons loading capacity. The rubber tracks are easy on the soil, but with their excellent traction, can be used for even tough jobs on difficult surfaces.

The hydrostatic transmission allows for economically utilising the full engine’s power. All steering maneuvers can be executed by using only two levers. The two speed ranges can be selected without shifting gears, but by pushing only one button. A clutch or levers to shift gears are not part of the hydrostatic systems.

The rubber tracks are the result of 30 years of joint development from Bridgestone and MOROOKA. The rubber tracks combine the characteristics of a tire equipped vehicle, such as speed and smooth ride, and the good traction of a chain equipped vehicle. Especially on sensitive or muddy and sandy solls, rubber chains are much more durable than steel chains with their many joints.

The carriers main components (engine, hydraulic pumps, drive motors, and steering levers) are easily accessible, allowing for reliability and convenient maintenance.
