Agile towing vehicle based on Mercedes:

The FWF 50 FOECK Truck

The FOECK Truck FWF 50 is an agile cable winch vehicle based on the Mercedes Atego with 299 hp with all-wheel drive, wide wheels and 4-wheel steering. The low center of gravity and ideal weight distribution guarantee good off-road capability as well. This makes the FOECKF FWF50 the ideal towing and transport vehicle in this performance class, in rough terrain as well as on public roads at up to 85 km / h.

The patented winch construction Schwenkmatic pulls the rope with a constant force of up to 50 tons.
