With new Pressure Proportional Control (PPC) control levers, the operator can easily operate the work equipment with fingertip controls, reducing fatigue and improving fine work equipment control and productivity. The work equipment lever console can be adjusted, as can the large arm rest to provide the operator with a variety of comfortable operating positions.
The automatic transmission with ECMV (Electronically Controlled Modulation Valve) makes operating functions easier and more efficient and ensures a more comfortable ride. It automatically selects the proper gear speed based on conditions such as travel and engine speed, and includes two switches that make operating the machine easier. With the touch of a finger, the kick-down switch automatically downshifts from second to first when beginning the digging cycle; in reverse, it automatically up shifts from first to second. The kick down switch also acts as a power-up switch when the machine is already in first gear or economy mode. Conversely, the hold switch keeps the transmission fixed to either the third of fourth gear speed when auto shift is selected.
