Features & Benefits

Save time on servicing

Servicing is simple and fast, thanks to easy access to all daily maintenance components and the main valve. Plus, the auto-tensioning fan and alternator belts eliminate the need for adjustment.

Best-in-class instrument panel

The system monitors vital machine fl uid temperatures and pressures, and in the event a system sensor reads an abnormal condition, will shut the engine down to prevent serious damage to the engine or hydraulic system.

Joystick control

Joystick control of boom swing and auxiliary hydraulics means more precision, fewer pedals and more leg room.


Do top-quality work, while dealing with less noise, vibration and heat, in the ergonomically designed cab.

Precision work

Fast reactions, simultaneous operations while travelling straight – plus reduced fuel consumption! All thanks to the closed centre hydraulic system with load sensing pump and valve that direct oil flow where needed.

Lift more, lift higher

With enhanced stability and lifting capacity combined with their best-in-class proportional auxiliary flow of 75.7 l/min, the E45, E50 and E55 allow you to operate a wide range of attachments, offering you high versatility.
