The Series II model 240 skid-steer loader is designed with stability because of 60-40 weight distribution to provide overall balance. A long wheelbase allows for travel at higher speeds over rough terrain, and major components are mounted low on the frame for a lower center of gravity. The skid steer also features a vertical lift boom, which rises along a near-true vertical path that reaches out at the top of the lift cycle. Load carrying efficiency is maximized by a high 35-degree bucket rollback at ground level, reducing material spillage. The bucket breakout force is 5,500 pounds.
