The D2488 amphibious vehicle is a larger version of the XT66 amphibious vehicle. If your specific project and terrain calls for more hauling capacity, more power, and a lighter footprint on the ground, then this is the amphibious vehicle for you. This vehicle is powered by a 85 HP turbo-charged Kubota diesel engine (V3600T), and it offers over 8,000 pounds of pulling capacity.

The D2488 is constructed from marine-grade aluminum, operates via a closed-loop hydrostatic drive system, and has two rear propellers for deep water crossings. There are two planetary-gear drive motors that provide extreme torque to the 24" rubber track system. The front 3 tires on each side of the vehicle are boogies with buddy bearings. Additional options include front or rear mounted electric winch, seating for six adults, powder coat paint, salt water kit, closed cab system, tie-down points, backup alarm, rear cargo rack, spine board & mounting hardware, and emergency lighting.
