The Model 115 Platypus is a modular house mover.
The CSI Model 115 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 jobsite is safer. The Platypus's umbilical 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.
