The parallel loader offers many important advantages, including maximum lift and breakout forces, divergent lift arms and low-profile hood for maximum visibility to the implement, large loader torque tube which resists bending and twisting, and self-leveling and return-to-dig systems for ease of operation.

Operator Station

All new interiors maintain a high level of visibility while achieving a new level of comfort and ease of operation. Spacious, stylish operator stations feature convenient personal storage areas, four large side windows which open 180 degrees to maximize visibility and ventilation, and low effort, logically placed controls located within natural reach. Cab arrangements provide additional comfort and features including standard air suspension seats for superior ride and operator comfort.
