  • The machine is well-balanced to help you get full drawbar power to the ground.
  • Increase your fuel economy up to 5% with the standard ECO mode.
  • The on-demand fan reduces fuel consumption and under-hood heat for longer component life.
  • The powershift transmission provides smooth shifting and has the capability to make quick directional changes when utilizing the new ergonomic shifter. With eight forward and six reverse speeds, you can select the right gear for the job.
  • Improve productivity with the Electronic Throttle Control which matches engine power and torque to application requirements.
  • The efficient hydraulic system helps you to create a more precise and consistent grade.
  • The Digital Blade Slope Meter option shows you the grade without relying on manual grade checkers.
  • Get extra traction with the differential lock when working in loose material.
  • Keep your machine’s engine speed at your desired level when using throttle lock and throttle hold.
  • Product Link™ Elite provides location, machine hours, fuel usage, productivity, idle time, diagnostic codes, and other machine data on demand through the VisionLink® online interface, which helps you improve jobsite efficiency with lower operating costs. Minestar™ can also be configured to your machine for added support.
  • Choose your comfort level in the cab with the mechanical suspension or air suspension seat.
  • Easily pull the control console and tilt the steering wheel to your ideal position.
  • The standard Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system circulates fresh air, prevents dust entry, and keeps windows from fogging.
  • Standard fresh air vents at the rear of the cab help to keep the windows clear.
  • Easily add a radio to the cab using the standard mount, speakers and wiring.
  • Neatly pack away all your gear with in-cab storage space, cup and cell phone holder.
  • The adjustable drawbar circle moldboard helps to stay factory tight with shimmable draftball, circle and blade wearstrips and to provide precision grading pass after pass.
  • The machine is built for a long life with reinforced structures.
  • The standard slip clutch protects the circle drive if the moldboard strikes an immovable object.
  • The front axle maximizes bearing life while also minimizing maintenance with the live spindle design.
  • The standard compression brakes help to extend the brakes life while also maintaining the machine’s braking power.
  • Standard blade lift accumulators help to absorb impact loads from the moldboard and help protect the ground engagement tools and front frame from potential damage.
