Chieftain C

The Foremost Chieftain C is a versatile, 4-tracked articulated off-highway transporter. Utilizing proven powertrain components and heavy duty center frame steering, this high flotation vehicle provides economic transportation of payloads to 15 tons in the standard configuration – 20 tons in the extended version – in moderate to severe terrain conditions.

The Chieftain C can be readily adapted for all chassis-mounted or specialized equipment for superior off-road mobility. It is ideal for logistical support of remote drilling operations and pipeline or power line construction projects faced with severe terrain challenges.
