cm) center-to-center to 81.5 in. (207 cm) center-to-center. Lift capacity is 44,000 lb (19,958 kg).
Maximum speed of RTCH is 23 mph (37 kph) on level ground with NO LOAD; maximum speed on level
ground LOADED is 15 mph (24 kph).
Maximum fording depth is 60 in. (1.52 m).
Operation in temperatures from -25F to +125F (-32C to +52C), and to -40F (-40C) with arctic kit
Electronically-controlled 400 hp (298 kW), six-cylinder turbocharged engine.
Electronic semi-automatic shift controlled transmission with 4 ranges forward and 3 reverse. Operator
selects range and ECM controls shift points.
The drive axles provide traction for 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive.
Limited slip differentials and multi-disc-wet brakes are an integral part of the axle assemblies. Multi-disc-
wet brakes are hydraulically cooled to prevent overheating. Accumulators store energy for the emergency
The steering system is capable of 2-wheel, 4-wheel, crab, and emergency modes of operation.
The parking brake is hydraulically released and spring-applied by disc brake assemblies mounted on the
front and rear differentials.
The operator's cab has a fully adjustable operator's seat, fresh air (filtered) ventilation system, and heater/
defroster/air conditioning systems.
