ENGINE ACCESSORIES/INSTRUMENTATION -Twelve volt alternator/ regulator, oil/fuel filters, engine gauges/hourmeter, muffler and air cleaner with precleaner. Automatic engine shutdown system controlled by engine coolant temperature and oil pressure. one hundred and thirty gallon diesel fuel reservoir for engine.

HYDRAULIC SYSTEM - Eighty-seven gallon oil reservoir with filtered breather, double element 300 GPM 9 micron absolute return line filters with sight gauge and condition indicators. High capacity constant volume oil cooler. - Seven inch bore outrigger cylinders with load holding valves (4). Seven inch bore main boom (2) and secondary boom cylinders (1). - Three Vickers hydraulic pumps providing 150 GPM with individual pumps for main boom, secondary boom and swing functions. Ten GPM pump for auxiliary and servo functions. - High capacity high pressure control valves have com­bined operating ratings of up to 200 GPM at pressures up to 2500 PSI. - Op­tional hydraulic over hydraulic joystick servo system available for infinite control response with maximum operator comfort. Pilot system flow and pressure controlled to fine tune control response with valve activation. Deluxe ultra adjustable seat incorporates control mounting in armrests for additional operator comfort.

ROTATION SYSTEM - Continuous rotation capability is provided by two heavy duty planetary/hydraulic motor swing drive units with built in fail safe disc brakes. The swing drives provide 37,500 ft lbs of rotational force in conjunction with the additional safety of automatically actuated fail safe swing brakes.

SUBFRAME - Heavy duty 21" deep H beam design high tensile steel sub-frame weldment with integral stabilizer housings and fenders. Four high ­tensile steel stabilizers extend to a working width of 17 feet at grade with additional below grade travel of approximately 18 inches. Seven inch bore stabilizer cylinders provide unmatched machine leveling capability under virtually any conditions.

UPPER STRUCTURE -The upper structure incorporates a 120  gallon fuel tank fabricated of heavy plate which also serves as a counterweight. Struc­ture is designed to provide good access to components and routine service areas. Cab guard is integral with upper structure, independent of cab, preventing cab damage which can occur on minor impact when guarding is supported by the cab. High tensile alloy main boom pin and main lift cylinder pin are free floating within manganese bronze bushings.

ELEVATING CAB - OPTIONAL - Hydraulically actuated cab platform allows operator to adjust cab height at any time while seated within the cab. The 42" of infinitely adjustable cab height allows cab heights of up to 17 ft. above ground level. This feature enhances operator visibility when conditions warrant, yet furnishes a normal cab height for routine operation. Also avail­able with joystick servo system option and air conditioning option. OPTIONS - Live Heel Boom, Stationary Heel Boom with detachable heel rack, Boom lengths to 40 ft, Elevated cab (fixed height), Air conditioning, Counterweight, Cold weather clutch, Trailer Type carrier, Self propelled Trailer Type carrier, 2 or 4 wheel drive rough terrain type carrier
