Lite Industries Inc.
LITE Industries Recon Tracked All Terrain Vehicle was designed and developed with input provided by exploration and energy clients looking for a solution to current deficiencies in harsh terrain logistics.
From the V pattern tracks to the escape hatch this machine was built with features and redundancy ratios exceeding anything currently available. Equipment such as a heated insulated aluminum cab for arctic conditions to fully ventilated “Louisiana doors” and a dual circuit hydraulic cooling system demonstrate the climates considered for the Recon to operate in.
With an industry first leading/trailing arm suspension combined with a comfortable high back seat, operator fatigue is minimized. Features such as AGM batteries and LED lighting provide massive amounts of light while greatly reducing electrical loads and increasing the amount of current available for optional equipment. The programmable hydraulic system provides owners with unlimited options for the machine from speed limiting to auxiliary systems operated from the same controls including remote RF operation.
The Recon is a tool designed to be used out of the box, no costly trip to the fabrication shop for outfitting, and no surprises when the machine doesn’t like the outfit.
