  • Engine
    The 240B is powered by a 225-HP Cummins QSB6.7 Tier 4 Final diesel engine with SCR aftertreatment. The unit includes a 36-inch-diameter auto reversing fan with automatic temperature control, and heavy-duty extreme cooling engine package.
  • IQAN Control System
    IQAN electrohydraulic control system is specifically designed for Barko machines, with hydraulics tailored for harvesting applications. IQAN offers infinite variable control, including programmable settings for individual operators.
  • IQAN-MD4 Display
    System information and machine diagnostics are conveyed on a convenient Parker IQAN-MD4 cab display.
  • Enhanced Hydraulics
    Hydraulic system features include an electric fill pump for the hydraulic tank and an improved internal hydraulic bypass for more consistent temperature in all weather conditions. Hydraulic tank vacuum pump is also standard.
  • Undercarriage
    The D5 undercarriage with 7.5-inch chain pitch offers ground clearance of 26.2 inches and compact track width of 9 feet, 4 inches with 600-mm pads.
  • Drawbar Pull
    The 240B is a 50,000-pound class machine that delivers an impressive drawbar pull of better than 1.3 to 1 ratio, giving it the ability to handle steep hills and rough terrain with ease.
  • Swing
    Dual swing-drive motors provide continuous rotation and high swing torque of 50,787 foot-pounds. The machine features a heavy-duty, oversized swing bearing and offers excellent boom reach.
  • Forward-Sliding Cab
    A patent-pending, forward-sliding cab design allows the cab to move out up to 36 inches for easier serviceability.
  • Gull Wing Door
    A large, hydraulically opening gull wing door offers direct access to the engine and components. Spanning nearly the full length of the machine, the gull wing serves as a working platform, complete with a slip-resistant walking surface.
