PERFORMANCE AND PRODUCTIVITY

  • Cat C7 engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 3/EU Stage IIIA equivalent or Tier 2/Stage II equivalent emissions standards, depending on emission standards of specific country.
  • Power Shift Countershaft Transmission matched to engine, maximizing power to the ground.

POWERFUL EFFICIENCY

  • Electronic Throttle Control helps improve productivity by optimizing HP and torque to match the power demands of the application.
  • Aggressive blade angles, optimized moldboard curvature and large throat clearance allows material to roll more freely along blade, increasing efficiency.
  • Hydraulic demand fan automatically adjusts speed according to cooling requirements maximizing power to the ground and improving fuel efficiency.
  • Engine Idle Shutdown is available to shut down engine after a set period of time, saving fuel and helping reduce emissions.

SIMPLE TO OPERATE

  • Proportional Priority Pressure-Compensating (PPPC) provides load-sensing hydraulics with superior control, enhanced performance, and efficiency.
  • Optional AutoShift Transmission improves ease of operation and maximizes productivity by automatically shifting the transmission at optimal shift points.
  • Rocker and control switches are in easy reach.
  • Proven conventional controls provide industry-standard control pattern and feel for precise cutting edge movement.

SAVE MAINTENANCE TIME

  • Durable nylon composite wear inserts maximize circle torque and component life.
  • Sacrificial brass moldboard slide rail wear strips between blade mounting group and moldboard can be easily adjusted and replaced.
  • Left-side, ground level service area access speeds up maintenance and ensures that routine service is performed on time.

HEAVY DUTY CONSTRUCTION

BUILT-IN SAFETY FEATURES

  • Brakes located at each tandem wheel offer the largest total brake surface area in the industry, delivering dependable stopping power.
  • Standard circle drive slip clutch protects the drawbar, circle and moldboard from shock loads when the blade encounters an immovable object.
  • Ground level engine shutoff allows anyone nearby to shut the machine down in case of an emergency.
  • Built-in lock check valves.
  • Clear view to moldboard heel and tandem tires enhance productivity and safe operation.
