Another key product over the years for
M.T. Engineering & Aardvark Equipment
Ltd. has been the Moxy 3212B articulated
dump truck built for the Moxy
corporation Norway between 1986 & 1990 &
as an M.T. Engineering product from 1990
This concept gives extreme off road
ability in deep mud or boggy conditions
with large ground clearance &
articulation hinge allowing for an "Aligator"
style "zig-zag" steering motion in very
heavy going. Chassis design keeps the
dump body centre of gravity low allowing
for vehicle stability & the slew ring
bearing in the middle of the chassis
allows individual wheels to ride over
large obsticles or through pot holes,
while keeping all four wheels in contact
with the ground.
Based on a 4 cylinder 4.4l turbocharged
Ford 7610 agricultural tractor skid
unit, the fabrications were designed &
added to the skid at the M.T.
Engineering works, Braintree, Essex U.K.
to produce a 12 metric tonne capacity
articulated dump truck rated at 104h.p.
Approximately 150 of these units were
made (mainly in the 1986 to 1990 period)
& have now been dissipated to all
corners of the globe, with many of them
still running to the present day.
Aardvark Equipment Ltd. supplies slew
ring bearings for the articulation
hinge, dry multi plate clutch packs for
4WD engagement, articulation pins,
bushes & bearings, 4WD gear sets (top
gear & bell gear) that are added inside
the tractor axle & any other part the
On request we can also still
manufacture this style of
tractor converted 4WD dump truck
from Ford, Deutz, Renault (Claas)
& Zetor donor tractors. New
vehicles are now designated
Aardvark D12 machines.
