advantage 500



  • Dependable all-wheel hydrostatic drive. No torque converter, no clutch, no differentials or axle shafts. Easy component replacement means less downtime when repairs are needed.

  • Your choice of powerful, efficient 15.2 liter/475 gross h.p. CAT or 13.5 liter/500 gross h.p. John Deere engines or higher horsepower units to best fit your needs.

  • Speed- 4 speeds forward, 4 speeds reverse to 5.2 mph (0 to 8 km/h)

  • OSHA approved, all-wheel hydrodynamic braking without brake pedals or exposed brake lines. Independent Spring-Applied-Hydraulic-Release parking/emergency brakes engage automatically if there is a loss of hydraulic pressure.

  • Electrical System- 24 volt system with master disconnect. Minimum 100 amp alternator. 4 maintenance free heavy duty batteries rated at 992 CCA each 100 – 140 AMP Alternator.

  • Extra heavy duty steel construction and sealed undercarriage produce a compactor perfectly suited for use in rugged landfill conditions. No service components are located under the machine so opening “belly pans” are not required.

  • Filtration/Cooling- Closed loop hydrostatic drive system for each wheel with 10 micron filtration. Hydraulic circuit includes 5 micron return filtration. Oversized radiator, oil cooler and charge air cooler with slide-out prescreens for easy access and cleaning. Auto-reverse hydraulic cooling fan is standard.

  • Options include automatic fire suppression, central automatic lubrication system, quick engine oil change system, fast fuel system, rear vision camera and motor system and cruise control (throttle lock)


  • MC400 electronic controller continuously calibrates speed and steering functions and monitors critical operating systems. The result is effortless steering and increased component wear life.

  • Easy-to-read illuminated analog gauges include engine oil pressure, coolant temperature, volt meter, fuel level and tachometer. MC400 electronic display screen monitors engine oil pressure, engine coolant temperature, engine speed (RPM), engine % load, run hours, battery voltage, boost pressure and transmission oil temperature. The MC400 screen also alerts the operator if potentially damaging operating conditions exist. Fault codes are available when system switches to diagnostic mode.

  • Large 2-door cab offers excellent operator visibility and comfort. Standard joystick steering and blade controls. Climate controls include heater/defroster, filtered fresh air intake system, and 40,000 BTU front-mounted air conditioning system. Fully-adjustable seat.
