An updated 988H wheel loader boasts up to 10 percent greater fuel efficiency as well as the Positive Flow Control (PFC) implement hy- draulic system, designed to improve loading performance and save fuel. The new AIK feature temporarily reduces engine speed when the machine is inactive for a period of time. An optional Payload Control System 3.0 is an on-the-go weighing system, with accuracy of about +/- 1 percent. Loader controls are located in a new electro- hydraulic implement pod that offers fingertip levers.
