Hitch ’n’ Roll Mobility

Ready to Go!

PodRunner by Rescue 42Hitch ’n’ RollⓇ Mobility enables one person to transport a lot of heavy gear from Point A to Point B without lifting the pod or the chassis.

  1. You can easily hitch and unload the PodRunner® without lifting the unit. Wheels are suspended off the ground during transport, so there are no speed restrictions or licensing fees.
  2. All PodRunners® are easy to roll and are narrow enough to fit through doorways, making them versatile both indoors and out.
  3. Gear nests above the chassis frame for additional road clearance. Units can be skid loaded for transport and aircraft operations.
  4. Universal hitch adapter works with standard 2″ trailer hitch. No vehicle modifications required.

Because the PodRunner® wheels pull up for transport, you don’t have the speed, road or licensing restrictions of a traditional trailer. Emergency responders can drive Code 3 and anyone can take the PodRunner® over rough terrain.

All PodRunner® models are narrow enough to fit though doorways and into elevators and the rugged chassis design easily handles uneven or unpaved terrain.

We make a PodRunner® for every purpose: Cargo-PodsⓇ, Workstation-PodsⓇ with optional generator compartment, Hydrant-PodsⓇ, FireFighter-PodsⓇ, Command & Communication pods, SCBA carriers, Dive & Boat and more.
