Boxer Brute TRX

With a compact footprint of only 44 inches by 70 inches, the Brute TRX lives up to its name, boasting an operating capacity of 900 pounds. The Boxer Brute TRX is powered by a fuel-efficient, 27-hp Kohler Command Pro gasoline engine. A two-pump, 3,000-psi hydraulic operating system develops 12.6 gpm of hydraulic flow to run the machine’s auxiliary and propulsion systems. The small stature of the BruteTRX allows it access to virtually any project, the company says. The Brute travels at a full 3.5 mph speed, with a ground clearance of 7 inches.


The SnapTrac from Kundel Industries is designed to lift and move anything up to a 1,000 pounds easily and effortlessly. Whether working on a hot rod, repairing a machine or running full production, SnapTrac's ever expandable design allows the user to bolt sections together, turning the base model into a complete system. Crane kits come in 8-foot and 12-foot sections and start at $335. The system can be ceiling hung or post-mounted. Posts are sold separately.
