  • Our FT4/Stage IV diesels employ field-proven cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), easy-to-maintain high-uptime exhaust filters, and selective catalytic reduction (SCR).


  • Increased hydraulic forces, engine power, and torque make quicker work of tough aggregate piles.
  • Hydraulic plumbing has been improved and articulation-joint and linkage pins enlarged to help boost productivity.
  • Bulkhead fittings eliminate long hoses, simplifying replacement and component exchange.
  • Hydraulic tank is positioned behind the cab for easy access, and hoses have been routed away from other vital operating components, for longer wear life.


  • Bigger material-handling buckets reduce fill time in processed aggregates, better retain loads, and ultimately conserve fuel.
  • Low center of gravity and optimized fore-and-aft balance deliver solid stability and full-turn tipping-load capacities.
  • Transmission shift logic and programmable clutch cutoff have been improved, for increased productivity in a variety of conditions.

Serviceability and Uptime

  • Quad-Cool design places coolers in a unique boxed configuration that’s isolated from engine heat, for increased efficiency and durability.
  • Standard hydraulic reversing fan automatically reverses at predetermined intervals, or can be programmed through the monitor to eject debris from the cooler cores.
  • Color-coded fluid-sample and diagnostic test ports help speed preventative maintenance and troubleshooting.


  • With larger material-handling buckets, the aggregate handling option can load out 24 to 26 short tons of non-heaping, lower-density processed matter in just two passes. With heavier materials, achieving 12 to 13 tons is not a problem.
  • Spec the low-profile tire option to increase traction, flotation and stability.
  • New slip-resistant plates at the rear of the machine enable more sure-footed grip.
  • Slip-resistant steps, platforms, and handrails provide uninterrupted three-point access.
