● Heavy Lift Mode
Heavy lift mode increases lifting force by 10%.

● Large Digging Force
High operation efficiency with large digging force for severe applications.

● Two-mode Setting for Boom
Switch selection allows either powerful digging or smooth boom operation.

● Twin Swing Motor System provides excellent swing performance, even on slopes.

● Large Drawbar Pull and Steering Force
provide excellent mobility.

● Swing Priority Mode
Swing priority mode improves efficiency for loading dump trucks at 90° or 180° swing angles.

● Shockless Boom
Switch selection reduces chassis vibration after sudden stops.


● Booms and arms are constructed of thick one-piece plates and large castings for extended service life

● Fuel Pre-filters with water separator equipped as standard

● O-ring Face Seals, which have excellent sealing performance, are used for the hydraulic hoses

● High-pressure In-line Filtration
The cool-running hydraulic system is protected with the most extensive filtration system available, including a high pressure in-line filter for each main pump.


● Easy Cleaning of Cooling Unit
Fan reverse-rotation function helps keep radiator and oil cooler clean.

● Centralized Arrangement of Engine Checkpoints

● Slip-resistant Plates for improved foot traction

● Large Handrails, Steps and Catwalk provide easy access to the engine, hydraulic equipment, and cab
