- Unique steel cores within rubber tracks resist cracking, and large-diameter drive sprockets and track idlers make for a rock-solid undercarriage.
- Steel hydraulic lines are clamped securely, and wear resistant hoses are protected with Cordura® covering.
- Heavy-duty X-frame provides a solid, stable platform that resists material buildup.
- Versatile rubber tracks minimize ground damage and allow machines to cross virtually any terrain, including paved surfaces.
- Standard backfill blade adds versatility, enabling these compacts to grade and backfill, as well as provides extra stability.
- O-ring face-seal hydraulic fittings virtually eliminate aggravating and costly oil leaks.
- Easy-to-read upgraded display shows operating information, hours and fuel level at a glance.
- Track speeds automatically slow to low whenever a heavier load is encountered and then return to high when the load normalizes. No pedal or operator activation is required for high-speed travel.

- Spacious operator station has a wide entryway, making entering and exiting the cab easy.
