Maintain control in slippery underfoot conditions

Help prevent tire slippage for increased tire life with this wheel loader's variable traction control system. Designed to help operators maintain traction in slippery or wet conditions, machine rim pull can be adjusted between 100% and 20% tractive effort depending on conditions.

Throttle lock with auto-deceleration

Engine RPM can be set to a constant speed in the cab for fast work equipment speeds and quick cycle times. Auto-deceleration automatically reduces engine RPM to 680 if no operator command is sensed after 10 seconds for additional fuel savings.

Fast work speeds with a smooth approach

A smooth approach for your operators when loading haul trucks, as well as simple control of tire slippage and shock reduction when shifting from forward to reverse. Modulation clutch adjusts the tractive effort using the left brake pedal from 100% to 20% of the torque converter output.

Travel performance you can trust

Help manage operator fatigue and material spillage with this wheel loader’s electronically controlled suspension system (ECSS) accumulators. This feature helps absorb the shock from the boom when in load-and-carry applications or tramming around the site.
