RUBICON is powered by Cummins - the most advanced engine technology to deliver power and reliability when you need it. Cummins engines run quieter, burn leaner and cleaner, and they are the industry leader in providing power to hydrostatic transmissions. The Cummins® 8.9L QSL 9 Tier 3A engine delivers up to 370 Hp (276 kW) and features fully Integrated Electronic Controls, providing seamless integration of all components to optimize engine performance.
RUBICON redefines boom stability: Revolutionary boom suspension system allows independent stiffness control settings on the springs and rams fixed to either side of the centre frame. The boom remains stable under the harshest operating conditions. The wide centre frame provides excellent on-road visibility. Spring tension holds the centre frame in the middle position while the hydraulic damper absorbs energy from the boom movement. A hydraulic actuator operated from the cab exerts more or less pressure on the spring to change the resistance.
