Three drive modes enhance machine response to match the application: Normal for typical operation; Eco that, when conditions allow, conserves fuel by smoothing throttle input, reducing maximum rpm, and optimizing transmission response for those conditions; and Traction, which applies added control to the auto-differential-lock system and powertrain to maximize traction over soft and slippery ground.
Redesigned, wider dump body than previous models boosts material retention and lowers loading height and center of gravity, improving cycle times in quarry and aggregate applications. Bin rail with angled top lessens material spillage during travel. Reduced transport width of under 12 feet eases moving between jobsites.
Robust machine sensors and simplified routing of electrical harnesses and hydraulic hoses improve reliability. Reduction of hose length and number of connections — 10-percent fewer than E-Series models — minimizes system complexity.
Eco mode automatically adjusts engine power and transmission settings based on load while limiting horsepower, for fuel savings of up to seven percent over E-Series models and up to 12 percent compared to Normal mode.
