What Size Tent OX is the Right Fit for My Business?

With Tent OX you have a choice! Did you know there are three main series of Tent OX tent installation systems from which you can choose? We can help you find the one that works best for your specific size tents and can accommodate the needs of your business.

Tent Installation

All of our 500, 600 and 700 series Avant machines have four-wheel drive and perform most of the same functions when it comes to driving, pulling, pushing and lifting, using Tent OX attachments. But there’s a difference in how much material weight each machine can handle and the size tent it can install.

Assessing your needs

When a business comes to us wanting to know what size Tent OX tent installation system it needs to accommodate its workload, our assessment begins with a few key questions. What size pole tents, frame tents or structures do you want to install? Do you handle concrete and if so, what size? Finally, what are your material handling needs?

Check out this simplified breakdown of each series and its capabilities. Keep in mind that there is a lot more information worth knowing about each machine. With a short, no-pressure phone conversation we can match you with the right Tent OX to meet your business’s current size and your goals for growth!

Note: *The smaller model number in each series denotes a slightly lighter machine with a standard drive system that is adequate for most businesses and is most commonly purchased. The larger number in each series model means it has a more advanced drive system and a higher top speed. Faster machines are best for businesses whose installation jobs require driving the Tent OX long distances from truck to tent site.
