Heavy lift can be enabled when extra lifting capacity is needed. For extra digging power, the no-time-limit power boost button instantly delivers about 10 percent more power. Independent travel allows each excavator to move, lift, and swing simultaneously without experiencing loss of travel power.

Powered by a Yanmar 164-horsepower engine, the units feature iNDr (Integrated Noise & Dust Reduction Cooling System) configuration to include a double offset duct structure, allowing for ultra-quiet operation and reduced dust intake.

Easy access to the cooling and control valve areas, engine compartment, and electrical components ensure convenient day-to-day maintenance.
