ABSTRACT
This article focuses on models 325 and 330 articulated dump trucks. They now are Tier 2 certified. Charged air-to-air engine cooling and an electronically controlled engine help make the trucks run with reduced emissions and better performance. Swing-out-fenders and a hydraulic lift for the hood provides easier access to maintenance points.
