The GD655-7 provides operators with an all new, ergonomic working environment and the new spacious cab allows more room for operators working long days. Operators will appreciate the new low-effort equipment and steering levers, new transmission controls and articulation stop-at-center feature. Collectively, they significantly reduce operator fatigue.
Slightly smaller but “right sized” steering wheel provides more visibility and operator room in the cab, convenient for those long, “blade-up and roading” trips
New steering lever allows the operator to keep hands on the low-effort, work equipment levers and make small steering adjustments, while operating without needing to turn the steering wheel
New multi-position adjustable arm rests and LH/RH consoles have power raise/lower and mechanical fore/aft adjustments to precisely adjust to operator preferences.
New, high-capacity, air-suspension seat softens in-cab machine vibrations for operator
New stop-at-center articulation feature simplifies operation
New operator presence monitoring system alerts the operator if they leave the seat and controls are not locked out properly
