What is Hydratek?
Hydratek is the ultimate multipurpose amphibious vehicle. Based in Tennessee, the company manufactures an elite line of one-of-a-kind, multi-purpose amphibious vehicles dedicated to accessing hard-to-reach areas.
Hydratek vehicles are used around the world, both for business and for pleasure. Whether you just want to see how far off the beaten path you can travel (think mountains, rivers, swamps and more) or you are interested in saving lives much more quickly after natural disasters (think catastrophic floods, tornadoes, tsunamis, hurricanes and tornadoes) or accidents, Hydratek can do the job.
Their vehicles have been used from Tennessee to the Philippines and back in search and rescue efforts, thanks to designers, machinists, engineers, production crews, welders, sales personnel and management all dedicated to developing a partnership with you to help you go faster, higher and stronger.
Here’s a look at some of the Hydtratek specifications that make their machines so spectacular:
Every Hydratek vehicle is equipped with a turbo-charged Kubota diesel engine. These engines give huge power, are efficient with fuel consumption and meet emissions standards, thanks to Kubota’s stellar reputation with agricultural and commercial engines. Diesel engines are more rugged than gasoline engines and have a longer life cycle.
Hydratek machines also use hydraulic systems, as does the majority of agricultural and construction equipment today. Hydraulic systems use fluid that cannot be compressed, which provides a greater, more efficient and consistent work and power output. Hydratek machines also use a closed-loop hydrostatic drive system that provides great torque, is reliable and is friendly to the environment.
A global service network is a huge plus as well.
Rugged and off-road conditions are no problem for Hydratek machines thanks to six aggressive ATV tires or a rubber track system (depending on the model) that allow you to navigate through thick mud, timber and vegetation as well as over hills.
Hydratek vehicles take you where others hardly dare to go because they can’t handle wetlands. If you need to reach an area in the midst of wetlands, across flood-stricken roads and fields, through swamps, marshes, snow, debris, vegetation or mud, across coastlines or anywhere similar, Hydratek has a proven track record of high performance in these environments. Because their machines are versatile enough to float and propel themselves through deep water, Hydratek can safely transport you through most terrains.
In fact, Hydratek machines have a 27-inch center ground clearance thanks to a patented undercarriage system that allows them that clearance.
Hydratrek vehicles are made from aluminum because of its high strength-to-weight ratio. Aluminum is strong and durable and provides better corrosion resistance than other materials. It is also one-third the density of steel, which allows it to float more easily because it weighs less. At the same time, aluminum is stronger than plastic or polyurethane, which is important for users who regularly push their vehicles to the limit in difficult environments.
On land, a Hydratek machine can reach speeds of up to 15 mph. In the water, top speed is 4 mph or 3.4 knots.
