EZ Crauler 6000

Rugged Ride-On Unit for Utility Pole Construction on Challenging Terrain

Conquer the Elements

Our EZ Crauler unit was developed for utility pole installation in a diverse set of geological conditions, including but not limited to; mountain regions, deserts, river beds, forest areas, hurricane relief efforts, and rebuilding quickly after an earthquake.

EZ Crauler - Rugged Ride-On Unit

LOW CENTER OF GRAVITY

RIDE-ON UNIT

MASTER OF THE ELEMENTS

The EZ Crauler is a tank! Our superior design and quality workmanship combine to create a force of nature. For times when the terrain seems unpassable by a line truck, You will be glad you have an EZ Crauler in your fleet.

Jump in and go. The EZ Crauler can carry the utility pole and the transformer. In the aftermath of a hurricane, the EZ Crauler lead the way and allow you to restore services sooner.

Earth, water, wind, and fire. In the aftermath of many of the things mother nature throws at us, the EZ Crauler is up to the challenge.

Power And Manuverability

We are voted “Best Quality” in the industry.  That doesn’t stop us from continuing to improve and lead the industry.  Not because we want recognition or accolades, but because we want you to have the best possible equipment to help you with your dangerous job.
