A Powerful Engine

The RPM48R is powered by a 388 kW (520 hp) Tier 4 Final Diesel engine equipped with particle post-treatment technology allowing fast engine recovery.

A High-Performance Transmission

Engineered with as few components as possible, the RPM48R transmission is dependable and transfers maximum power from the engine. The transmission relies on an oversized industrial gearbox, withstanding hard work and minimizing energy losses for an optimal power transfer.

Belt Drive System

The RPM48R belt drive system provides a superior transfer of the engine power and a greater shock resistance.

Emergency Clutch Engagement

In the event of a clutch failure, a lever allows for its manual activation to let you finish the job.

The Most Rugged Frame

The triangular frame design composed of two (2) oversize beams on each side, maintains the structure integrity during hard work and makes it more resistant to impacts.

Easy Maintenance

The tilt-up engine cowling, swing doors grease zerks, and well-thought-out mechanical design provide easy access to main components.
