Turns in Tight Spaces

The zero-tail swing enables you to drive through and turn smoothly in tight spaces with ease.

Superior Engine

The superior engine has been engineered with the power to maximise digging and lifting performance. It also delivers minimised noise and vibration.

Powerful digging force

Our 3.0 ton digger delivers an outstanding bucket digging force. Its powerful and well-balanced arm and bucket allow the operator to dig deeper, faster and more efficiently even in the harshest conditions. In addition, it offers powerful workability and excellent stability without the need for additional weights that other zero-tail swing excavators often require.

Manage’s Multiple Operations Simultaneously

The boom, arm, bucket, and swivel can function simultaneously. In addition, the user-friendly tech has made it easy to operate four or more functions at once to deliver optimum performance and simple usability.

Enhanced oil flow efficiency and Reduced oil contamination

The third-line hydraulic return system lets oil flow straight back to the tank without running via the control valves when working with one-way hydraulic attachments, such as breaker or brush cutter. This donates to less oil contamination, reduced back pressure, and greater oil flow efficiency.

Zero-tail swing

With zero-tail swing, even the tightest spaces become efficient workplaces. With complete confidence and safety, the tail’s minimal protrusion exceeding the track width lets you turn throughout its 360-degree turning radius. It also sustains better balance and faster operation over traditional zero-tail swing excavators, making this mini-excavator ideal for work in congested urban areas and inside buildings.

Enhance Operability

The luxurious interior features a wider entrance, greater legroom and a deluxe seat. In addition, operability is greatly enhanced with more easy-to-use features than ever before.

New Digital Panel

The user-friendly digital is positioned to the front right corner of the operator for clear visibility and accessibility. It features easy one-touch button operation to view the time, hour meter and tachometer. In addition, warning lamps with code numbers on the display will alert you in emergencies such as overheating, hydraulic problems or low battery.

Maximum Operator Safety

With our 3.0 ton digger hires, you can work with absolute assurance that you are in safe hands, thanks to its sturdy and durable ROPS (Roll Over Protective System) and OPG (Operator Protection Guards) that provide maximum operator safety and other accident avoidance features such as work lights.
