Arctic Trucks has designed and built trailers for use in Antarctica and the Arctic based on one design. The trailer gives the vehicles the extra capacity needed on longer expeditions. This is a high load capacity trailer that uses same bearings, shock absorbers, tires/wheels and more as the towing vehicle. Offering two types of solutions built around 38 inch tires and 44 inch tires the trailer will have the same tires, fitting into the towing vehicle track.
At times, one of the challenges when travelling in the Arctic and Antarctic is melting snow for water. The dryness of the air requires us all to stay hydrated and we need water for things like cooking, cleaning and more. We found out early that melting snow in a pot with gas or white fuel can be tricky, risky and takes time. We therefore developed a mobile unit which can easily and safely melt snow fast and heat the water to about 60C. This unit can also work as a tent heater with a fan that blows hot air. The unit has it own fuel tank and battery which can be charge from the vehicle. After using the snow Melter in one expedition the Arctic Trucks teams refuse to go without one.
Ground Penetrating Radar System
A Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is commonly used on glaciers and iceshelfs where ice crevasses can be expected or for other research. Arctic Trucks has developed a system which easily pushes the GPR antenna in front of the vehicle, accurately triggers the scanning and brings the data into warm vehicle for the operator to view and analyze. The system is designed around fitment to Arctic Trucks Polar vehicles but can be adjusted for some other vehicle
