A six-way adjustable seat, an armrest mounted dual axis electro proportional joystick, and dashboard mounted switches make the cab of the RT555 comfortable for operators and allows them to stay in the crane for extended periods of time.
The 176HP rated engine powering the RT555 has a maximum torque of 590 foot pounds at 1400rpm and the 6x6 powershift transmission with four-wheel drive on this crane allow for easy transversal of many jobsites.

The hydraulic single stage double box beam outriggers with inverted jacks and integral holding valves have three position settings, 0%, 50%, and fully extended to better fit in many situations.
