Lift Arm

The robust lift-arm on the RT185 Compact Track Loader is designed for optimal strength, visibility and capacity.

  • Radial Lift Path lift arm offers enhanced performance in excavating, grading and digging below grade applications.
  • Low-profile design provides outstanding forward, rear and side visibility.
  • Simple "in-line" design increases structural integrity by eliminating the complex geometry and welding found on many competitive "offset" lift arm designs.
  • Front channel support and large diameter pivot pins provide exceptional lateral strength and rigidity.
  • Lift-arm incorporates dual bucket cylinders and two lift-arm stop blocks on the front of the main frame to evenly distribute digging forces.
Height to Hinge Pin - Fully Raised (mm) 128" (3251)
Reach - Fully Raised (mm) 34.5" (876)
