ARDCO’s Articulating Multi-Purpose Truck (AMT) features 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 array of standard and customizable attachments. Available configurations include 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 easily change attachments, while 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 and work in any environment.

Powered by a 250-hp Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 4 Final diesel engine, the AMT 600 model features selectable four- or six-wheel-drive and offers a maximum payload of 45,000 lbs. The AMT 400 model has a 200-hp Cummins Tier 4 engine, offers two- or four-wheel-drive, and provides a max payload of 28,000 lbs. for hauling fuel, water, dirt, and more. Top travel speed for each unit is 23 miles per hour.

The AMT features a two-person, fully enclosed, all-weather rollover protection structure cab that is sound rated to 68 dB. An upgraded 7-inch display is incorporated in the steering column, providing digital gauges with onboard diagnostics, digital manual access, and an optional backup camera display. A streamlined front-end angle offers the driver panoramic visibility to enhance safety.

Specifically built for off-road travel, the AMT includes a high-strength center pivot trunnion with approximately 20 degrees of oscillation, which allows all the tires to maintain ground contact and traction while travelling over rough terrain. Dual hydraulic cylinders provide 37 degrees of steering each way for better maneuverability and added traction. The articulating motion allows the tires to slide left or right in wet/muddy terrain and gain traction instead of spinning in one place and digging a rut.

Both models include a Dana 6-speed powershift transmission with twist grip shifter. The AMT 600 features AxleTech rigid planetary axles with driver controlled differential lock, while the AMT 400 has Dana rigid planetary axles with automatic limited slip differentials, front and rear.

Optional accessories include a hydraulically operated front push blade, front-mounted hydraulic winch, heavy-duty front bumper/brush guard, and auxiliary hydraulics. The AMT is covered by a limited one-year warranty.
