Dm688S Or R688St


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have to choose between two tractors: a DM688S and a R688ST. The R688ST is a 1988 model and the DM688S is a 1991 model. Can you please advise me on the advantages/disadvantages of either model, and what the difference between the two is? Thanks in advance!! :thumb:

In general, if you're going to use the tractor for heavy hauling, such as moving equipment on a lowboy or pulling a dump trailer, then the DM688s will be what you want because it's heavy spec'd.

For normal on road trailer truckin', then the R688st would be more appropriate.

This is just a broad generalization, as it depends on the exact specs of each unit.

Thanks for the response, the DM is actually a DM690S but i think it was converted to a tractor. Does anyone know if the low gear can be a drawback if using to haul heavy containers?
