Features & Benefits

Short Rear-End Swing Radius

Providing additional flexibility to manoeuvre and operate within tight, confined spaces. Easy trench excavation work is possible near walls, foundations and other obstacles, improving productivity in urban areas.

Wide Opening Steel Inspection Covers

Offer direct access to service points, allowing for quick daily inspection, servicing, cleaning and refuelling, with the radiator and oil coolers positioned side by side for convenience. An optional tilting device for the floor of the cab provides even greater access for service and maintenance procedures.

Excellent Residual Values

With a worldwide after sales network.

Rugged Cab

Designed to ROPS standard and fitted with flat easy replicable glass. A seatbelt, pilot control shut-off lever, swing parking brake and travel parking brake are all standard.

High Machine Performance

Provided by Hitachi closed centre load sensing hydraulic system. The HHH (Hitachi High-performance Hydraulic) system allows for smooth multi-function operation, regardless of the load.

Multifunctional LCD monitor

A large 3.5-inch screen that is easy to view in bright sunlight or at night. This enables you to see the machine’s technical data at a glance, including status and settings, and is positioned within easy reach of your right hand.

Auto Shift Traveling in High Travel Mode

The auto speed change system shifts down travel speed when the load exceeds a certain limit (for instance, when going downhill), and shifts up when the load is less. This gives smoother operations when dozing and turning, and also reduces track wear.

Auto Idle

When moving the control lever to neutral, the Auto Idle automatically reduces engine speed to idling level four seconds later, reducing fuel consumption. It also brings the additional benefits of lower noise levels and emissions.

Neutral Engine Start System

Disabling engine starting unless the lever is in lock position.

Hose Rupture Valves to Boom and Dipper

Prevents the boom and dipper from dropping in the event of a hose rupture. Offering additional safety and compliance on job site.

Air Conditioning

Improving operator comfort and reducing operator exposure to dust and fatigue.
