Electrical system ....................................................12 volt with 65-amp alternator
Cooling fan.............................................................blower
Transmission
Dual-path, electronic-controlled, hydrostatic drive; load-sensing feature automatically adjusts speed and power to match changing load conditions; each individual track is
powered by a variable-displacement piston pump and two-speed motor combination; decelerator controls speed from holding to 5.0 mph (8.0 km/h)
Travel speeds (infinitely variable)
Forward and reverse ........................................0 to 5.0 mph (0 to 8.0 km/h)
Final Drives
Heavy-duty triple-reduction final drives attach directly to the mainframe and are isolated from track frame and dozer frame loads
Steering
Single-lever steering, direction control, and counterrotation; full power turns and infinitely variable track speeds provide unlimited maneuverability and optimum control;
hydrostatic steering eliminates steering clutches and brakes
Brakes
Hydrostatic (dynamic) braking stops the machine whenever the direction-control lever is moved to neutral, whenever the decelerator is depressed to the end of travel, or
whenever the brake pedal is depressed
Automatic Park Brake
Exclusive safety feature engages wet, multiple-disc brakes automatically whenever the engine stops, whenever the operator applies the brake pedal, or whenever the neutral
start lever lock is in the stop position; machine cannot be driven with brake applied, reducing wear out or need for adjustment
