The TW40 wheel loader features a very compact design that allows it to easily maneuver in tight spaces with minimal damage to lawns, pavement, or other sensitive surfaces.  It is at home in a wide variety of applications and features a standard universal hydraulic skid steer style coupler for greater attachment versatility.  The two speed hydrostatic transmission allows the TW40 achieve a top speed of 12.4 mph so it can easily move material around the jobsite.  A spacious operator's station is elevated giving the operator exceptional visibility and jobsite awareness, and the 100% inching pedal allows the operator to control travel speed independently of engine speed for reduced engine and brake wear.  The impressive power and precise control of the TW40 delivers increased productivity, and lower operational and maintenance costs making it a great alternative to the skid steer loader.
