One of the features that set the SVL75 apart from its opposition is the inclusion of the Engine Stall Guard which ensures that the engine will not stall even under the harshest of work conditions. Engine Stall Guard creates outstanding traction allowing operators to keep on working in testing conditions. The drive system features as standard a two-speed travel switch allowing the operator to shift between a low of 7.5 km/h and high of 11.5 km/h to get the job done faster.
