Optional camera array with LED-surround lighting integrated into the main monitor work together to supplement 270-degree visibility of the area around the machine.
Centralized lubrication at arm tip and improved front joint-bushing design relocate the grease-entry point to push contamination out from the center. New design simplifies routine greasing to boost joint life.
Larger hood opening and individually serviceable coolers improve overall access around the front of the engine. Four bolts and a single electrical connector make fan maintenance quick and easy.
Electric, on-demand cooling fans ease engine load. In-line aftertreatment reduces system complexity and restriction. Larger front-piping diameter relieves hydraulic restriction, which combined lowers fuel consumption by up to seven percent compared to the 380G LC.
Sculpted mechanical-suspension high-back seat slides independent of the pilot-control console. Optional premium air-suspension leather seat is adjustable and heated/cooled. Ergonomically correct short-throw pilot levers provide smooth fingertip control. Push buttons in the right lever finesse auxiliary hydraulic flow for operating attachments. Wide expanse of front and side glass, narrow front cab posts, large overhead window, and numerous mirrors provide clear visibility.
