Mastenbroek’s new CT12 Crawler Truck was on show at the William Morfoot’s stand at Cereals, at the National Association of Agricultural Contractors’ drainage hub.
It features a designed operator cab, offering more internal space without increasing its footprint. There is also improved access to the cab with a larger door, upgraded steps and handrail.
Inside the cab, the controls have been brought closer and are said to be more ergonomic. Electronic track control has been added, replacing the manual levers found on previous models.
The machine will join William Morfoot’s existing fleet of Mastenbroek machines and will be used to shift gravel backfill around arable farmland. Based in Norfolk, the company has been draining and improving agricultural land since 1962.
While William Morfoot did look at other manufacturers for its new crawler truck, managing director TimSisson says that “Mastenbroek is a trusted partner of our business with whom we have had a long working relationship. Therefore, we were very confident that purchasing this machine from them would satisfy our requirements, especially having purchased similar machines before.
“We always consider other options when making any substantial purchases. The marketplace is constantly evolving, with different manufacturers offering different machines and ideas. However, for this purchase, Mastenbroek was the best choice.
“Mastenbroek’s crawler truck offers everything we were looking for, and the new cab is more spacious than previous models and offers better visibility.”
