The firm has opted to offer the increased speed as the machines are often used for travelling long distances between jobsites, where the normal transmission is slow and the alternative of transporting them by truck gets expensive. Some applications, like loading and carrying, also benefit from having a higher operating speed. Cycle times can be cut, boosting productivity.
With three driveline speeds now available (there is also an intermediate driveline that boosts speeds up to 30km/h), customers can choose the option that best suits their needs and applications. In addition, a drive mode selector means that the operator can adjust driveline behaviour to match the work being undertaken.
