CPT Morooka Crawler


  • Based on the Morooka crawler vehicle
  • Relatively fast CPT Crawler rig (with speeds of over 12 km per hour)
  • Ideal for very soft soil with a low ground pressure of 28kPa

The CPT Morooka rig is fast and can travel long distances on asphalt or concrete surfaces without causing surface damage. The crawler tracks are made of rubber.

The renowned Cone Penetration Test (CPT) pusher, the HYSON 200 kN from A.P. van den Berg, is mounted on the Morooka CPT Crawler. The HYSON 200 kN pusher is limited by means of safety valves, so it will not exceed the 15 tons maximum payload of the Morooka. The penetrometer is operated via the touch screen.

The HYSON 200kN cones is two formats:

  • Professional – Hydraulic Push / Pull Clamp and Hydraulic Catch Clamp
  • Advanced – Mechanical Push / Pull Clamp and Hydraulic Catch Clamp

The hydraulic push/pull clamp facilitates fast efficient operation including easily changing from 36 mm CPT rods to 56 mm casing tubes.
