  • Optional fully automatic traction control system (differential locks) improves performance in the pile and poor underfoot conditions.

Fuel Efficiency

  • Up to 10% lower fuel consumption than H Series.*
  • Power dense ACERT engine burns less fuel by providing power and torque when needed.
  • Performance Series Buckets feature a longer floor that easily digs through the pile resulting in lower fuel consumption.
  • Load sensing hydraulics result in proportional flow for implement and steering on demand.
  • Standard productive Economy Mode provides maximum fuel savings with minimal productivity impact.
*Actual results may vary based on factors such as, but not limited to, machine configuration, operator technique, machine application, climate, etc.

Ease of Operation

  • Intuitive, ergonomic controls keep operators focused on their work.
  • Optional new ride control system with dual accumulators provides excellent ride quality and lowers cab vibrations.

Safety

  • Excellent cab access with wide door and stair-like steps.
  • Floor to ceiling windshield, large mirrors with integrated spot mirrors and rear vision camera provide industry leading all-around visibility.
  • Robust, repositioned grab bars provide safe access to machine platforms.

Serviceability
