This project would have proven to be quite the challenge without the benefit of PowerTel’s massive fleet of offroad utility construction equipment. This equipment is maintained by a team of highly qualified and specially trained heavy equipment mechanics. It easily travels the rocky back country and variable terrain of Newfoundland and Labrador, and gives PowerTel crews access to locations that would otherwise only be accessible via helicopter.

Powertraxx Offroad Utility Construction Equipment Used:

  • Tracked Buckets (Including units with over 100′ reach)
  • Cranes
  • RBDs
  • Flatdecks
  • Personnel Carriers
