    Which or the?

    Which is correct of the following two sentences found in a table with descriptions of parameters:

    This parameter specifies the type of loader the system is equipped with.

    or

    This parameter specifies which type of loader the system is equipped with.

    Thanks!

    They both look fine to me. (I would use which if the choice is between two or more specific types.)
