Construction Equipment Guide

The newest addition to the Dressta lineup is the 555C Extra wheel loader, featuring a new turbocharged, in-line six-cylinder Cummins QSM11 engine. This 10.8-L Tier-III-certified engine delivers 319 net hp (238 kW) at 2,100 rpm or 330 net hp (247 kW) with minimum fan usage. Maximum torque is 1,235 ft.-lbs. (1,674 Nm) at 1,400 rpm.

This 6.5-cu.-yd. (4.9 cu m) size wheel loader can come equipped with buckets ranging from 5.5 to 11.0 cu. yd. (4.2 to 8.4 cu m) and has an approximate operating weight of up to 66,380 lbs. (30,110 kg).

Dressta has added a new cooling module and upgraded the hydraulics system to allow for a variable speed fan that provides greater cooling and potentially more horsepower. The battery has been moved to the rear of the machine above the steps for easier access. The steps are now painted gray instead of yellow.

The 555C Extra features an electrically controlled, full power shift, four-speed countershaft transmission driven by a double universal joint from the torque converter providing proper ground speed matches for all operations.

Other major features of the 555C Extra include hydrostatic steering, single lever hydraulic controls and internal wet disc brakes. A full complement of individually replaceable gauges and warning lights keep the operator on top of operating conditions. The comfortable “picture window” cab offers visibility in all directions.
