  • Engine

    Our IT4/EU Stage IIIB engines employ cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) for reducing NOX, and a diesel particulate filter and diesel oxidation catalyst to reduce particulate matter.

    Quad-Cool design isolates coolers from engine heat for increased efficiency and durability, and keeps them well protected behind the heavy-duty grille and fan.

    Hydraulic-driven variable-speed fan runs only as needed, reducing noise and fuel consumption.

  • Hydraulics

    Separate, sealed hydraulic and hydrostatic systems with common fluid and filter codes eliminate cross contamination.

    In-cylinder sensors enable return-to-dig, boom-height kickout, and bucket leveling. Setting them is push-button easy from the seat. These standard features, plus boom float, help speed cycles in repetitive applications such as truck loading.

  • Transmission

    Counter-rotating tracks and variable speed control increases productivity.

  • Controls

    Choose joystick, multiple-lever hydraulic controls, or V-pattern transmission lever.

  • Serviceability

    Large service doors open wide, and same-side daily checkpoints are conveniently grouped for ground-level access.

    Operator station tilts a full 53 degrees in minutes, for wide-open component access.

  • Total Machine Control

    Total Machine Control (TMC) allows you to customize operating characteristics and response, for superb, one-of-a-kind control. TMC can also be used to monitor machine readings such as mileage and hours.

  • Undercarriage

    Heavy-duty sealed and lubed undercarriage is standard, with extended-life and Maximum Life undercarriage systems optional.
