The key feature of the Aftershock AR400 Series III shuttle is its 180-degree powered rotating driver’s console. This standard feature allows the driver to approach the conveyor cart driving backwards to load the shuttle. Once the cart is unloaded into the shuttle, the driver stops the shuttle, rotates the seat 180 degrees to the forward position, and can then drive back up the row without having to wait for the cart and harvester to move out of the way. The shuttle achieves a top speed of 30 MPH (48KPH) whether driving forward or backward. The AR400 shuttle works best when paired with OMC’s Aftershock SD-36 side-dump elevator and Aftershock CC-350 conveyor cart.
The AR400 features an articulating rear axle to go with the standard air ride suspension in front and rear. Additionally, a powerful Caterpillar turbo-diesel engine is standard, displacing 4.4L and providing 142hp to the load sense hydraulic system and achieving Tier 4 final emissions performance. The interior is upgraded as well, featuring a composite operator’s console, intuitive controls, Hehr safety glass, and sliding window on the door.
