The GD655-5 has a unique dual mode automatic transmission. The operator can operate in direct drive mode for long pushes such as snow removal without ever having to de-clutch like all other graders. In the torque converter mode the operator has excellent low speed maneuverability and hydraulic control again, without having to de-clutch to prevent stalling the machine. Excavator style hydraulics, 900 left or right bank slope, two working modes and variable horsepower give the operator the tools he needs to do any job with precision and power.
