The Platypus is a mobile/modular house mover:

The Platypus lifts and moves manufactured housing units with ease. Mating the halves of a modular or doublewide home is achieved without jacking or rolling. As a result, productivity is higher and the job site is safer. The Platypus's radio remote control removes the operator from a hazardous position and allows an unobstructed view of the work zone. By reducing hazards and man-hours per set, the Platypus offers a quick return on investment by lowering major cost factors!

Move it, Steer it, and Lift it into place – Quickly, Safely, and Precisely!

The Platypus is equipped with heavy-duty excavator-type tracks (street pads) for a dependable long service life, expertly designed to make lifting and moving mobile and modular housing units quick, easy and safe! The Platypus's hydraulic system, powered by a Kohler engine of your choice, provides the power and flexibility to accurately position the housing unit, even on the most demanding of work sites.
