More Info


Engine Power

Engine power has increased significantly — by 25 percent — for superb multifunction performance.

Improved Stability

Longer, wider undercarriage maximizes stability no matter the terrain. If you’re working in really big timber or on hills, optional high-torque swing provides increased power, to boost productivity. Up to 45-percent more tractive effort increases capability for negotiating difficult or steep terrain, deep snow, and swamps.

Standard Rapid Cycle System (RCS)

RCS can be tailored to individual skill levels and specific harvesting conditions. Multiple RCS settings can be saved according to individual operator preferences. Novices may prefer a slower, more methodical pace, while highly skilled pros may want faster response.

Increased visibility

Floor-to-ceiling front window offers 44-percent-more window area, providing an outstanding view to the cutting area.
