Key features

  • An integrated system display allows the operator to easily monitor important machine functions, while the capability to monitor percentage of hydrostatic capacity use is especially useful when training new operators.
  • The TrenchSense™ electronic control system can react faster than the operator to prevent engine stall/stop when difficult digging conditions are encountered. By eliminating the need to return controls to neutral and restart, productivity can be increased, and the whole sequence occurs within seconds.
  • Common controls across the RTX lineup help the operator become more efficient and productive.
  • The RTX550 is available in three ground drive configurations: a standard 31” (78.7 cm) tire option, a 35” (88.9 cm) tire option for enhanced flotation and quad tracks for reduced surface damage and increased tractive effort.
