    Support Truck with Supply Trailer

    The truck has got an adaptable back: it can be equiped with a cargo bay or clutch. If the clutch is used, a trailer can be connected. The trailer itself can also be used to extend the driller.

    Due to the shape of truck and trailer, tunnels can be passed easily.
