Two Guys, One Amphibious Vehicle: A SHOT SHOW product preview - Hydratek's CM66

A look at Hydratek's CM66, the latest in an outstanding lineup of wetland vehicles

Product Preview

Hydratek is back at SHOT SHOW - Booth 40348 (SHOT1) - this year with their latest in amphibious vehicles. New for 2021, the CM66 is a smaller version of the current amphibious vehicles produced by Hydratrek®. It utilizes the chassis design of the Hydratrek® products and the Land Tamer gearbox and driveshaft drive system. Outdoorsmen and waterfowlers will be drawn to this model, and it will also prove worthy in the commercial sectors. This model features a 57 HP Kubota gasoline engine, marine-grade aluminum construction, a hydrostatic drive system, and all-wheel drive. This model can operate with or without a track system. Seating for up to 5 persons is available, and other options include 18" track system, rear water propulsion, LED light bars, front and rear electric winch, and a full cage with storage racks. The land payload is 1,400 lb, and the water payload is 1,000 lb. The CM66 is generating a lot of excitement due to its smaller size and superior reliability compared to other known, light-duty AATVs on the marketplace.

Personally one of the coolest products I am looking forward to check out is Hydratek's CM66. We've has the pleasure of using a couple of their vehicles before and man, having one of these down in Louisiana after Hurricane Ida would have made our work so much easier.
