A reliable propel system improves performance and efficiency and compaction technology solutions help you reach target density faster.

Benefits

Low Operating Costs

Eco-Mode, no-maintenance hitch with sealed-for-life bearings and extended service intervals help keep your operating and maintenance costs low.

Increase Efficiency with Compaction Technology

On-board compaction measurement technology indicates when specifications are met helping to eliminate guesswork, reduce unnecessary passes and minimize rework.

Exceptional Visibility and Comfort

A rear vision camera enhances visibility around the machine and a pivoting seat with integrated controls and tiltable steering console provide an ergonomic work environment.
