The optimized boom design provides improved bucket breakout performance throughout the lift path. You also get more reach at truck bed height and more lift height to the hinge pin. We rerouted the auxiliary hydraulic lines to better protect them and added connect-under-pressure couplers. The engine side shields attach more securely. Automotive-style courtesy lighting can be preset to stay on for up to a 90-second interval before shutting down after the operator exits the machine.
You asked. And we delivered. Loaded with customer-inspired enhancements, our redesigned 318D Skid Steer incorporates a roomier operator station, a quieter pressurized cab with best-in-class visibility, and a curved-glass swing-out door. You also have a choice of numerous productivity-boosting options including electrohydraulic(EH) joysticks with selectable control pattern and variable boom and bucket speed settings. Other innovative advantages include a highly efficient and easy-to-clean V-plenum cooling system. And an easier-starting electronic fuel-injected PowerTech™ E diesel. As always, grouped checkpoints, advanced diagnostics, and wide-open access help speed servicing, minimize maintenance, and lower daily operating costs.
