Adjustable Tread Width: Overall tire tread width is adjustable from the 10 feet working width to 8 feet 6 inches travel width to allow easier transportation to the job site.
Engine Compartment: Engine compartment access doors are made of aircraft-grade composite material to allow easy handling and light weight. The composite material is extremely durable and stable. Open grid design allows maximum air circulation for the engine. Positive easy-to-operate latches secure access doors.
The hydraulic reservoir is mounted outside the engine compartment allowing easy access to hydraulic pumps and other components. The reservoir includes clean-out ports and a shutoff valve. A hydraulic oil cooler insures reliable operation.
Winch: Rear-mounted 20,000 lb. hydraulic winch with cab control provides extraction insurance in extreme wet terrain conditions. An additional front mounted winch is available as an option.
