Diesel Drive    
The integrated engine oil and filter system combining the oil stabilizing systems, Reserve and Centinel, with Eliminator oil filter extends the oil change interval up to 4,000 hours based on oil analysis. The high capacity Mesabi engine radiators are cooled by a hydraulically driven fan for superior cooling efficiency.

Hydraulic System    
The power train consists of two main drives. Each of the two gearboxes drives four identical pumps which draw hydraulic oil from an unpressurized hydraulic tank. Open circuit hydraulics provide maximum cooling and filtering efficiency.    
The four-circuit system features a load-limiting governor with oil delivery summation to the working circuits and incorporates pressure cut-off control. Hydropilot prioritizes hydraulic flow giving smooth hydraulic response, simple hydraulic system layout, and a reduced number of components. The hydraulic system includes large swing-out vertical air-to-oil hydraulic coolers with temperature regulated hydraulically driven fans.
