    Some pics of the 289C CTL undercarriage.

    Looks really stout to me, can't wait to get one in the field.

    The last pic is of the original 299C, just for fun of course. :cool2:

    Wow, I like the grease fitting placements on the torsion axles, that's smart. I also noticed a set of wires going to the drive motors, and is that an inter cooler I see behind the engine?!?!

    That is an Air to Air aftercooler.

    That is an intercooler on the 297/299. That is how they get the extra 10 horsepower over the 287/289. The intercooler is also the reason why the frame behind the cab is longer on the 297/299 than on the 287/289.

    the wires to the drive motors are for the motor speed sensors.

    Since these machines are electro/hydraulic each wheel speed is important to providing the best performance.

    That's a nice looking undercarriage. The weight difference from 272c to 299c means a lot of iron in that thing.

    the rear plate inboard of the towers looks to be thicker than the SSL/MTL too, though I havesn't actually measured.

    The roller frames are boxed on the bottom right above the top of the bottom rollers and it appears there is some girth to the whole assy.

    Also the 299C has the same air cleaner assy as we are used too but I promise the snorkel and air cleaner improvements are coming.

    While I didn't have these two machines side by side, I don't think there is a difference in engine compartment size.

    There is a ton of room ahead of the engine on the 289C, looks like the ATAAC would bolt right in?
