A rugged EPA Interim Tier 4/EU Stage IIIB diesel engine enables you to work, wherever there's work, even in nonattainment areas. Customer-inspired refinements include a more comfortable and spacious cab. And an enhanced LCD monitor with simplified navigation that lets an operator easily dial-in to a wealth of machine information and functionality.
