Updates to the Taylor-Dunn Tow Tractor and Stockchaser Lines Are Helping Businesses Improve Productivity

Minneapolis, MN (August 5, 2019) – Class-leading towing just got better. Taylor-Dunn, part of Polaris Inc. (NYSE: PII) is taking productivity to the next level by enhancing its industry-proven TT-316 and C-425 tow tractors and SC-100 24 and 36 volt stockchasers with AC motors. The all-new TT-316, C-425 and SC-100 provide the same reliable service in rugged applications as the previous DC models with increased durability, performance and operator safety.

“At Taylor-Dunn, we’re constantly listening to our customers and working on ways we can help them enhance efficiency on the job – which often means making updates to our current line of products,” said Alex Taylor, product manager, Taylor-Dunn. “This is exactly what we’ve done with the TT-316, C-425 and SC-100. The new AC models optimize productivity by further reducing required maintenance and improving overall vehicle performance.”

Safety Attributes

The updated TT-316 features enhanced brake control while continuing to provide automatic brake activation on gas pedal release and an automatic parking brake. A new optional blue pedestrian light is now available for increased visibility. Additionally, the tow tractor includes a reverse beeper, operator presence sensor, high visibility LED headlight and combination taillights.

The C-425 now has a rotary forward reverse switch with a built-in LED safety indicator which turns red when tow tractor is in reverse and green when in forward to alert operators that the vehicle is under power. Additionally, an updated display now includes a speedometer for better operator awareness.

SC-100 enhancements include a new rotary forward reverse switch with built-in LED indicators that display red in reverse and green in forward, as well as an updated display with included speedometer. Additionally, an optional LED headlight and taillight provide better visibility, as well as a longer light life.

Durability Improvements

The new TT-316 includes redesigned battery doors to prevent accidental tripping of the battery door switch, and a new master cylinder guard was added to protect from forklift damage. These updates help decrease vehicle downtime due to maintenance or damage repair and increase job-site efficiency.

The C-425 now features a larger battery compartment, allowing for a bigger battery, increased vehicle range and reduced downtime. A new cab option makes the tow tractor ideal for outdoor use without the worry of increased wear and tear due to adverse weather conditions.

All three models also feature an AC motor which eliminates the need for brush replacement, increasing efficiency by reducing maintenance downtime.

Performance Features

An all-new 36-volt AC efficient motor coupled with a powerful GT drive enhances performance while towing up to 15,000 pounds for the C-425, 16,000 pounds for the TT-316, and 5,000 pounds for the SC-100 The powerful new AC motor also provides better performance on inclines.
