Advantages at a glance.

  • Short frame overhangs: Large ramp, approach and departure angles. Effect: Effortless tackling of obstacles, hilltops, hillsides or slopes
  • Fording capability: On top for a water depth of up 1.20 m – thanks to torque tube technology, air intake pipe at cab roof level and water-proofed major assemblies
