A programmable auto-idle function reduces engine speed to 1,400 rpm when the levers have not been used for a pre-set time. When the left-hand control pod is lifted, isolating the machine’s hydraulics, the engine speed falls again, to 1,100 rpm, reducing fuel consumption and noise levels.
A large engine canopy provides easy access to daily checks, with a scalloped counterweight providing easy changing of the engine oil filter. A hinged air conditioning radiator (where fitted) swings out to provide access to the main radiator for cleaning.
