BENEFITS & FEATURES
Structures


Robust Structures
Your bottom line is improved by highly durable structures that achieve multiple life cycles and withstand the toughest loading conditions.
  • Full box-section rear frame resists torsional shock and twisting forces.
  • Castings in the engine end frame are used in high stress areas to spread high loads.
  • Cast axle pivot mounting areas better disperse stress loads for increased structural integrity.
  • 90 percent of the machine structure is robotically welded to provide highly consistent welds and increased strength.

Robust Structures


Frames
Your key to maximum uptime and productivity is our purpose built front and rear frames.
  • Full box-section frames absorb torsional forces during dozing, maintaining alignment for hitch pins and drive line.
  • Spread hitch design features double tapered roller bearings and hardened pins that resist both horizontal and vertical loads.
  • Enhance strength in key pin areas through the use of one piece castings.

Frames


Push Beam and Push Arm Dozer Arrangement
To ensure long life and reliability, solid one piece push beams are through-width, not merely attached to the side of the frame. In corner dozing, stresses are transferred and absorbed through a larger portion of the frame.

Push Beam and Push Arm Dozer Arrangement


Power Train


Impeller Clutch Torque Converter (ICTC) and Rimpull Control System (RCS)
Lower your cost per ton utilizing advanced ICTC and RCS for modulated rimpull.
  • Reduce tire slippage and wear by modulating rimpull from 100 to 25 percent while depressing left pedal. After 25 percent rimpull is achieved the left pedal applies the brake.
  • Reduce the potential for wheel slippage without reducing hydraulic efficiency with RCS.
  • Improve fuel efficiency in certain applications with our lock-up clutch torque converter providing direct drive.
