The DT640 Utility Crawler is the most versatile inspection vehicle of its kind. Its sleek, three-wheel body comes with a magnetic option, allowing it to crawl along ferrous materials in almost any direction - ship hull inspections and water tank maintenance has never been easier.

It is designed to be compact during transportation and extremely portable to allow operators to launch immediately at their inspection site. Skidless steering and zero turning radius allow the DT640 Utility Crawler to maneuver in tight areas and tough surfaces.

The DT640 can also work underwater up to 50m (164ft), all while live video streaming to the handheld controller at the surface. It is your go-to tool for a multitude of remote inspections, with application-specific add-ons for pressure washing, vacuuming, thickness testing, and more both above and below the water.
