DRESSTA NORTH AMERICA of Buffalo Grove, Ill., has enhanced the top end of its wheel loader line with the new 560E Extra featuring a high performance Tier 3 engine, joystick boom and bucket controls, hydrostatic steering, and a high visibility cab. It has a payload capacity of 5.35 to 11.5 m3 and a 41,980-kg operating weight.

The new turbocharged in-line six-cylinder Cummins QSX-15 engine increases power from 310 kW to 319 kW. A variable speed cooling fan allows the engine to provide 332 kW at minimum fan speed. The oil change interval has been extended to 500 hours. The 2,900-kg counterweight, previously optional equipment, is now standard.

Combined with a three-speed, full power shift, countershaft transmission; torque converter, front and rear drive axles and conventional differentials, the 560E Extra delivers reliable and durable power transfer for high production, even in slippery conditions.

The 560E features a Z-bar linkage that transfers maximum breakout force to the bucket to pry out hard-packed material. The design features a single bucket cylinder that puts less weight on the front. The design extends lubrication intervals as well as pin-bushing life. Boom cylinders are mounted outside the front frame for easy access and maintenance. Four-wheel, hydraulic, multiple wet-disc brakes (C-series) are completely sealed and force cooled to reduce downtime and improve reliability and safety.

The 560E Extra is part of the complete Dressta wheel loader line that also includes the 515G, 520G, 530E, and 555C. Dressta North America is a fully owned subsidiary of Dressta Co, Ltd. Visit www.dresstanorthamerica.com.
