LT 8x8 XHD (Extra Heavy Duty)
The Land Tamer utilizes our hydraulic/gear drive system which requires virtually no regular maintenance or adjustment. We use a closed loop variable displacement tandem pump system. Each individual pump of the tandem pump setup drives a hydraulic drive motor that delivers torque to either the left or right side set of wheels.
All wheels on each side of the vehicle are mechanically coupled together and driven by one heavy duty hydraulic drive motor for each set of wheels.
This is a much more efficient means of delivering power to the wheels when compared to other hydraulic vehicles which have a hydraulic wheel motor at each wheel. The Land Tamer’s drive system components are protected inside the hull from the elements such as water, mud, dust, rocks, etc. that could damage exposed hydraulic motor seals as with other machines.
The Land Tamer maintenance requirements are a fraction of the maintenance needed for other recreational type amphibious vehicles that have drive chains. Absolutely no drive chains to adjust as with some other recreational type light duty amphibious vehicles, which require many hours of maintenance and have a short vehicle life.
With the Land Tamer you only have to check your oil, filters and grease your bearings and you are off and running saving countless hours of maintenance time. This means money saved over the life of the vehicle and should be factored into the total investment in the Land Tamer.
