The machine features a 15-hp spindle motor, a 20.4" swing over the bed and a 10.25" swing over cross-slide. Bed lengths of 60" and 80" are available, as are spindles with 2.56" or 3.15" through-holes.
Equipped with a GE/Fanuc 21iT control, the lathe can be operated in four different ways: basic, manual, fixed cycles and G-code programming based on job type.
