Top 5 on-the-job advantages:
  1. Four-wheel hydrostatic drive: Generates outstanding high pulling power and brisk speeds from 6 mph to 18.5 mph, depending on the machine size. Feel the easy power even as you drive over irregular surfaces, move up and over curbs and climb steep inclines.
  2. Big tire, light weight:  From the smallest to largest machine, each Tent OX loader is immediately recognizable by its outsized tires and lighter weight compared to traditional machines used by the tent rental industry. That allows it to move tent materials, ballast and anything else you need to transit over manicured lawns and gravel paths where most other machines are forbidden.

  3. Advanced hydraulic powerhouse. It won’t take long to learn and harness the power of Tent OX’s mobile hydraulic power plant as you drive and pull stakes. Exceptional power permits driving hundreds of stakes with minimal physical effort.Quick-connect hose links (see video) allow you to change from a stake driver to a another attachment very quickly. Infinitely controllable speeds on hydraulic attachments keep everything under control as you pull keder panels twice as fast as before, without fabric tears, or stake a site. Pulling stakes couldn’t be easier, and you never leave your seat.
  1. Intuitive maneuvering that is fast and accurate. Forward and back pedals, and a left-hand accelerator to help you go where you want, eliminate the need for brake pedal. Easy-to-learn joystick (shown) delivers intuitive and ultra-precise control over all arm movements. Articulated power steering, adjusts an attachment left or right over your work with micrometer precision.
  2. Crossmachine compatibility for Tent OX attachments. As your business grows and you decide the time is correct for moving up to a larger machine, you’ll be happy know that you’ll be able use the same attachments. Uses the same attachments found on larger models
