Smooth Operator

  • Three operator-selected RPMs: Powerful, responsive boom and bucket functions for optimum fuel
  • Low noise, inside and out. For bystander: 108 dBA. In cab: 72dBA.
  • Strong pushing and quick ramp climbing is excellent for maintaining stockpiles and heaping hoppers.
  • No transmission shifting or clutching for smooth reversals and less spillage.

It's All About Control

Standard traction control

  • No operator involvement required.
  • Increases traction in poor underfoot conditions.
  • Virtually eliminates runaway wheel spin to increase tire life

Rimpull Control

  • An additional measure of protection against tire spin and slicing in the first operating range when crowding
    loads to fill the bucket.
    Select one of five settings on the sealed-switch module.

Coast Control

  • Three settings to vary feel between a conventional torque-converter transmission and dynamic braking
    with hydrostatic transmission.
  • Slows the loader without touching a pedal.
  • Service brakes rarely need to be used in V-pattern truck loading with coast control for reduced wear
