Comfort everywhere you look

– Spacious cab features wide doorways and user-friendly pull-type latches to ease entry/exit from either side. Viscous cab mounts, rear acoustical glass, extensive insulation, and pressurization effectively isolate operators from vibration, noise, and dirt. Standard air conditioning and numerous directional vents keep the interior comfortable and tinted windows clear. Adjust the standard high-back air-suspension seat or deluxe heated and leather-bolstered seat for daylong comfort and support.

Built to run long

– Heavy-duty undercarriage is sealed and lubricated, for maximum wear resistance. Simple-to-navigate LCD monitor displays diagnostic messages and solutions to keep you up and running. Swing-out side shields and tilt-out grille enable access to both sides of the coolers, for low-effort debris removal. Hydrostatic and hydraulic pressures can be read on the in-cab monitor, easing system-pressure checks.

Easy does it

– Full-power turns, on-the-go counter-rotation, infinite speed control, and power management — state-of-the-art controls enable complete command of an arsenal of highly productive hydrostatic (HST) advantages. Choose joystick forward-neutral-reverse (F-N-R) or V-pattern transmission lever with steering pedals as well as single-lever joystick or two- or three-lever hydraulic controls to fit the operator’s style.

Waste not, want not

– Standard Eco mode automatically adjusts engine power and transmission settings based on load while maintaining ground speed, to optimize fuel economy without sacrificing productivity. Auto-idle helps save fuel by reducing engine speed when the crawler loader isn’t moving and no functions are being activated. To further help conserve fuel, auto shutdown automatically turns the engine off after an operator-determined period of inactivity.

Peak performance

– Low-effort controls command the full-featured HST drivetrain, providing smooth, predictable response at all times, in all conditions. Total Machine Control (TMC) enables customized operating characteristics and responses, for one-of-a-kind control. Just set maximum desired ground speed, and the power-management system automatically maintains peak engine rpm and power efficiency without stalling or shifting.
