The Scorpion's design utilizes a unique new approach to
The idea is to connect the front and read axles through a set of
linkages and "equalizer bars" to force the axles to work in
opposite directions. This patented approach to flexibility
has been improved on over the last three years, resulting
in today's Scorpion.
We are a strong supporter of the "Tread Lightly" philosophy.
We observe proper trail etiquette to preserve nature and the
comfort and safety of those people and animals sharing the
trails. We respect vegetation and work to keep the
environment clean and undisturbed.
The Scorpion MkI was the first example of this idea. And it
worked! The MkI went on to win the 1998
Top Truck Challenge.
The MkI was further refined into the MkII, MkIII, and MkIV
The revolutionary design for the Scorpion's suspension
allows it to keep all four tires on the ground with
virtually equal ground pressure in almost any situation.
The Scorpion can conquer terrain that other vehicles cannot.
And, the Scorpion handles the terrain without the bone-
jarring ride characteristic of off-roaders. This allows the
Scorpion to be used in a rescue role to provide a soft ride
for injured persons extracted from rough terrain. The
terrain benefits, as well, as the Scorpion is gentle on the
ground it traverses.
As with any vehicle used off-road, extreme care must be
exercised when traversing uneven or rough terrain. Although
we design and build the Scorpion to be stable and safe, you
must rely on your common sense, good judgement, and caution.
Safety is YOUR responsibility. This applies to any vehicle,
We have a number of new ideas on the drawing board and
getting closer to production. Keep an eye on
