Focus on Safety

Safety is no accident. The TIDD PC25 is designed to provide outstanding performance while providing optimum operator safety both on the road and operating on the job site. The safety features have been designed in consultation with industry where safety is paramount! Safety features include:

  • New Slew Safe
  • Robway LMI System
  • Automatic side slope derating
  • ROPS (Rollover protection system)

“The rollover protection cabin is a significant benefit to all industries, particularly mining. The PC25 finish is like a European Truck. They’re really well finished, far superior to most things made in Australia.” - Albert Smith, Group Managing Director, Universal Cranes
