A choice of single- or dual-level undercarriage suspension is available on all three models, and a two-speed option is available for fast movement around large sites. The 297C has a rated operating capacity (50-percent tipping load) of 4,233 pounds. The vertical lift 297C is joined by the 287C, which has an operating capacity of 3,854 pounds and also features vertical lift for enhanced truck loading capabilities. The 277C has radial lift linkage and a rated operating capacity of 3,212 pounds. The 18-inch-wide rubber tracks feature three rows of lugs, which create a larger area for the track to engage with the guide system. The additional row of lugs enhances guiding when working on side slopes.
