Designed with you in mind...

  • New Stage IV-compliant engine contains a high-volume cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system, a common rail-type fuel injection system and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC). The non-use of DPF further reduces fuel consumption and maintenance costs.
  • A 7% fuel saving in V-shaped loading (5% load & carry) compared to previous model, with no loss in productivity.
  • Quick power switch increases engine output when more power in required instantly or when going up hill.
  • Class leading build quality.
  • Front lift arm has a thicker cross tube to provide more strength against torsion.
  • A parallel lift arm provides parallel movement from ground level. Perfect for loading and unloading items with increased load control.
  • A selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system injects urea into exhaust gas to reduce nitrogen oxide from emissions. This cutting-edge technology not only helps the environment, but also complies with EU Stage IV emission regulations.
  • Low-noise engine results in a quieter performance, making it suitable for working in urban areas.
  • Optional auto shutdown feature helps to prevent fuel wastage, as well as reduce noise levels, exhaust emissions and CO2 level.
  • Optional belly guard protects the machine’s powertrain and driveshaft from potential damage caused by materials on the ground.
  • High quality radiators improve resistance to corrosion and enhance the overall durability.
  • Remote monitoring Global e-Service to monitor machine remotely via Owner’s Site (24/7 online access) and ConSite (an automatic monthly report). These help to maximise efficiency, minimise downtime and improve overall performance.
  • Full manufacturers warranty.
  • Good residual values, with a worldwide after sales and service network.
  • The spacious cab creates with air suspension seat provides a comfortable working environment, while the 360° panoramic view helps to increase safety and productivity.
  • User-friendly operation and wide view mirrors for increased visibility.
  • A rear-view camera contributes to excellent all-round visibility and safety on the job site.
  • Sound insulation significantly reduces noise levels and provides a quieter working environment.
  • To ensure a smooth drive on all kinds of terrain, the ride control feature prevents unnecessary pitching via the movement of the lift arm cylinders.
  • Different lever control available to suit operator preference.
  • The simultaneous movement of the bucket and lift arm ensures a smooth digging operation. To reduce the shock that occurs when the lift arm comes to a halt, a smart hydraulic valve controls the flow in the lift arm circuit.
  • A multifunctional LCD colour monitor displaying useful information at a glance, such as fuel and urea levels, oil temperature and power mode. It also includes the display for the easy-to-use rear-view camera, which enhances visibility for a safe operation.
  • Excellent rear view due to the curved engine hood.
  • Several storage compartments within the cab.
  • The engine air filter is located to the rear of the engine compartment, providing easier access at ground level for maintenance, with the urea tank also positioned for convenience.
  • Easy to open wide engine covers and easily accessed battery compartment.
  • Battery disconnect switch included as standard. Helping to avoid electrical accidents and retain battery power during long-term storage.
  • Auto reverse radiator to reduce build-up of debris in the cooling system.
