Waste Handling Arrangement

Tailored for waste applications.

Final Drive Seal Guards

Protects the Duo Cone seal against wrapping of wires or plastics.

Hydraulic Reversible Fan

Purges the debris from the air inlets by reversing the airflow. Limits radiator plugging and increases maintenance interval.

Turbine Precleaner

Increase engine air filter life by pre-cleaning the air.

Guard, Idler and Lift Lines

Protects and limits the entry of debris into the tensioning system and lift lines. It includes scrapers mounted around idler.

Rubber Mounted Windshield

Makes the windshield replacement easy and fast.

Eight Lights

Increase work time with four lights at the front and four at the back.

Hinged Grill and Radiator Fan

Provides excellent access to radiator and fan for cleaning.

Extensive Sealing

Improved sealing between engine enclosure, cab and frame limits radiator plugging.


Tailored for waste applications.

Center Holes Shoes

The center holes in the track allow sprocket to punch out dirt and debris, that prevents an increase of track wear caused by an abnormal track tension. This is the best choice in landfill.

Striker Bars

Very useful in landfills, the striker bars removes waste from the tracks to prevent damaging the fenders and the cab. Equipped with a step, it facilitate the access to the cab from the rear.

General Purpose Bucket - Landfill

This trash rack increases the standard bucket capacity to move low density materials.

Multi-Purpose Bucket - Landfill

This buckets provides the ability to load, push, grab. Trash rack increases the standard MP bucket capacity to move low density materials.

Guard, Cab Lights and Windshield Screen

Provides additional protection to the windshield and the lights against debris.
