The HVAC controls feature a new, infinitely variable fan speed control, adjusted on the control panel or the machine control system touchscreen, adding to operator comfort.

Multiple convenient storage locations with nets have been added to the cab to keep items secure.

A redesigned engine enclosure provides improved roof access for clearing debris. A boom slider also reduces debris build-up in hard-to-reach areas.

A hot shutdown feature has been added. This allows the turbo to sufficiently cool before stopping the engine, improving turbo life.
