Originally created in 1971, the YFW500D was the world’s first ever tracked carrier. With an added cargo box for transporting soft materials, the original crawler utilised the undercarriage of a Yanmar rubber crawler combine harvester.
Yanmar are celebrating the 50th anniversary of the tracked carrier this year by renewing their company’s commitment to the development of top-performance products and solutions that can provide premium reliability and value for customers.
Yanmar, through their contribution to urban development, housing construction and infrastructure development, are setting out to achieve a society where everyone can live with peace of mind.
In 1971, by adding a cargo box to the undercarriage of a combine harvester, Yanmar created the YFW500D, the world’s first tracked carrier. The YFW500D was powered by a Yanmar diesel engine and could transport materials on soft ground where trucks and dump trucks could not enter.
Today, Yanmar has a number of tracked carriers on the market, catering for a variety of business needs. At MTS Plant, we offer a range of Yanmar’s compact and powerful dumpers, such as the Yanmar C08 and the C08 Hi-Tip.
