Mobility over snow and ice (ES14E2)

17 June 2014

DEW Engineering & Development ULC (Hall 5, Stand CD900) is highlighting its robust military grade D900 Multifuel snowmobile, which provides off-road, over-snow mobility in Arctic, northern and alpine environments.

The D900, the only one of its kind in production, was designed for military operators and military missions and is distinguished from recreational snowmobiles by its use of standard military fuels (F-34/ JP-8, diesel), long range (more 34 than 550km), excellent fuel economy and high payload and towing capacity (400kg).

It is powered by a turbocharged three-cylinder engine. Other driveline and wear components are standard off-the-shelf parts, chosen for their availability, durability and performance.

Maintenance is simplified by easy access to systems and components. A large internal stowage area and external storage brackets provide ample space for equipment and supplies.

Based in Ottawa, Canada, DEW provides solutions for vehicle platform integration, armour, rebuild and re-role of equipment, and custom and large-scale manufacturing.
