The 190 HP Prentice 2664, the latest model in the site prep tractor line, is now offered with a winch option to assist in self-recovery. With in-cab controls, the two-speed winch has a 20,000 lb. capacity and can be powered in and out. It is available as a factory-installed option or as a field-installed option if required. All Prentice site prep tractors, including the 220 HP 2764 and the 260 HP 2864, are available with this value-added option.
The Prentice site prep tractors provide the flexibility to perform many land clearing jobs with one power tool carrier. Equipped with a Cummins QSB 6.7L engine that meets Tier 3 emissions requirements, the tractors have a tight turning radius and are easy to maneuver around buildings and landscaping.
The load-sensing hydraulic system is engineered to provide smooth hydraulic power while consuming less fuel. A variable displacement pump and pressure compensating system monitor hydraulic power requirements. Flow is sent to steering on demand for smooth, efficient maneuverability, while providing consistent flow to the working end of the tractor.
