Engine and cooling system

Economical diesel engines, that meet strict exhaust emission standards, demonstrate high power and torque, and provide simple and cost-effective operation. Reduced noise and economical fuel consumption are possible due to automatic engine function switching to idle speed.


Maximum torque and high values ​​of boom breaking force make it easy to work on clay soils, as well as quick bucket fill and soil moves. The increased load capacity is possible by models with a vertical boom - 314G, 318G. In turn, models with a radial lift boom 312GR, 316GR provide high productivity when excavating soil.
